Everyone keeps asking me how good will San Diego State be in 2013. This post is dedicated to predicting the Aztec win loss record for the 2013 season. The Aztecs have been picked to finish second place in the Mountain West Conference West Division by Mountain West Media. The three most important games of the season for the San Diego State Aztecs are: Ohio State, Fresno State and Boise State (in order of games played).

The newly constructed Mountain West Conference Western Division:

  • San Diego State
  • Fresno State
  • San Jose State
  • Nevada
  • UNLV
  • Hawaii

This division has the potential to be electric. I still believe that San Diego State and Fresno State are the two most dominant teams. Going into the start of 2013 we are going to have a two team race to win the division between San Diego State and Fresno State. Yes the Aztecs lost to San Jose State last season but San Jose State is going to have to get used to playing better competition. I strongly believe that the West Division will come down to San Diego State vs. Fresno State at Qualcomm Stadium on October 26th 2013. The team that comes out victorious will be the champions and will most likely play Boise State in Vegas for the Mountain West Conference Championship game.

Team Wins Losses
San Diego State 5 0
Fresno State 4 1
Nevada 3 2
San Jose State 2 3
UNLV 1 4
Hawaii 0 5

San Diego State will have one of the best defenses in the Mountain West Conference this coming season. The Aztecs only lost Leon McFadden to the NFL. The Aztecs return with a rock solid linebacker group led by Jake Fely. The Aztecs have two really good safeties in Nat Burhe and Eric Pinkins. The only question for the Aztecs on defense is comeback. The Aztec offense is returning with one hell of a ground game. Adam Dingwell returns as the starting quarterback with a record of 5-0 against Mountain West Conference teams.

The game against Fresno State is to hard for me to call. The Aztecs beat Fresno State the last time they came into Qualcomm. That game will come down to the Aztecs secondary. In each prediction I have San Diego State beating Fresno State and then losing to Fresno State. San Diego State Coach Rocky Long was telling people on the Mighty 1090 that he believes Fresno State should be ranked Top 10 nationally. They have the best quarterback in the league and the best lockdown corner. Make sure you have tickets for the Battle of the Oil Can between San Diego State and Fresno State. If you do not get tickets the game will be on ESPN.
