San Diego State must win this game to insure they win the Mountain West Conference championship. The Aztec run defense which is the best in the Mountain West is looking forward to taking on the Wyoming run game. As this game is sure to be played in bad conditions favoring SDSU’s run game over that of Wyoming’s. The Aztecs are now 8-3 (6-1) after upsetting Boise State to hold a share of the Mountain West Conference Championship should the Aztecs win out. We predict SDSU and Wyoming will be a close game. San Diego State will come home from Wyoming to crowds of Aztecs in the streets will a share of the Mountain West Conference Championship!

The Aztec defense is lockdown on the running game and does need work with passing.The Aztecs offensive is unstoppable with the double tangent of Walter Kazee and Adam Muema. The two backs are averaging near five yards per carry on the season. Behind a great passing attack lead by the new starting quarterback Adam Dingwell and should be All-American tight end Gavin Escobar.

San Diego State Overall (8-3) Conf (6-1)

San Diego State beat a bad team in Army, Air Force, Colorado State, Hawaii, UNLV and a good FCS team in North Dakota. San Diego State upset two of the best teams in the nation (home records) No.19 Boise State and Nevada.The Aztecs lost to three very good teams in Fresno State, San Jose State and Washington. The San Diego State defense has played very bad in the fourth quarter so far this season giving up 61 points. The San Diego State ground attack and ground defense will be the difference against the Wyoming Cowboy’s.

Bye Week

Wyoming Overall 4-7 and Conf (3-4)

Now lets break down the Wyoming schedule up to this point in the season. Wyoming lost to a few good squads including Toledo, Texas, Nevada, Fresno State and Boise State. Wyoming also lost to horrible teams Cal Poly. Wyoming has won games against three bad teams Idaho, Colorado State and New Mexico. The Wyoming offense is one of the middle of the road offense’s in the nation. Wyoming offense is ranked 83rd in total offense as shown in the chart above. The Wyoming offense is going to have to play a flawless game in the turnover battle and the Wyoming defense is going to have to shut down the San Diego State run game if they want to have any chance at beating the Aztecs. ***We have not updated the stat chart for Wyoming after their win over UNLV.
