Photo taken during post game celebration on TWCSN

San Diego State finished one of the best season’s on record with a record of 9-3 and 7-1 in conference play. The Aztecs came away with huge wins at Nevada and at Boise State. The Aztecs were favored to lose to both Nevada and Boise State. The San Diego State offense had some bumps in the road with the injury to starting quarterback Ryan Katz at the beginning of their game against Nevada. The backup quarterback Adam Dingwell stepped up and has competed to the best of his abilities. Dingwell has won seven straight games as the quarterback of San Diego State. The Aztecs offense were led by Adam Muema and Walter Kazee who helped break the SDSU rushing record with two games to go on the season.

The Aztecs defensive lost their best player last season in linebacker Miles Burris and have been one of the best defenses in school history. The Aztecs finished Mountain West Conference play as the number one rush defense in the conference. The Aztecs have done a great job of rebuilding the team and will be a huge threat come next season. Below are the final Mountain West Conference awards for the season. Congratulations to San Diego State Coach Rocky Long for being named Mountain West Conference Coach of the year.!!
