Everyone keeps asking me how good will San Diego State be in 2014. This post is dedicated to predicting the Aztec win loss record for the 2014 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: Northern Carolina, Oregon State and Boise State (in order of games played).

Going into the start of 2014 we are going to see one team leading the pack and that will be San Diego State. The San Diego State Aztecs are returning a large portion of last years team which finished 2nd in the Mountain West Western Division leading to a bowl game victory over Buffalo. I am not being a homer towards San Diego State in any way. Fresno State lost the biggest passing threat in the entire conference losing Derek Carr to the NFL. They are going to have to find another franchise quarterback. This will but Fresno State at a disadvantage.  Fresno State does not have a dynasty like that of Boise State. Look at what happened when Boise State lost one of the best quarterbacks in school history Kellen Moore. Since the loss of Kellen Moore Boise State has gone 19-7 over the past two years. This year the Western Division will be San Diego State’s to lose. Over the past 9 seasons San Diego State has finished the  season 8 times at or above the preseason conference ranking. I truly believe the two best teams in the Mountain West Western Division will be San Diego State and Nevada. I strongly believe as stated above that San Diego State will win the Mountain West Western Division and will face Utah State from the Mountain Division in San Diego for the Mountain West Championship game.

San Diego State will have one of the best defenses in the Mountain West Conference this coming season. The Aztecs return with a rock solid linebacker group led by Derek Largent and the recovering Jake Fely. San Diego State will have the biggest defensive line in terms of LBS that we have had in years. San Diego State has one of the best corner backs in the Mountain West Conference in J.J. Whittaker. San Diego State has one of the best defenses against the run in the nation finishing in 22nd place. If I am correct that was the highest ranked Mountain West Team. The Aztecs ranked 89th nationally in pass defensive which was not the best and will improve this season.

The Aztec offense is returning with one hell of a ground game. Yes we know that Adam Muema is no longer at San Diego State and trust me when I say this… we don’t need him. In the recent years San Diego State has become a factory for producing great running backs. The Aztecs will use the same type of running game this season and it could be more successful. It looks like the starting running back will be Marcus Stamps a 6’1 210 pound red shirt freshman. Stamps is a big bruising running back and will be backed up by the one and only Donnel Pumphrey. Walk on Quinn Kaehler returns as the starting quarterback fresh off a bowl victory against Buffalo.
