San Diego State Overall (1-2) Conf (0-0)

The three players to look out for would be QB Quinn Kaehler, RB Donnel Pumphrey and WR Eric Judge. Kaehler has completed 55 of 94 passes for 652 yards and two touchdowns. Pumphrey has had 53 carries for 300 yards and five touchdowns. With the injury to Ruffin, Eric Judge now becomes the prime target of QB Quinn Kaehler.  So far this season Judge has 10 receptions for 160 yards (53.3 YPG) and a touchdown. Expect San Diego State to run over UNLV! I am expecting to hear Pumphrey’s name called a lot this weekend as UNLV is the worst team against the run in the country. I also expect to see freshman QB Nick Bawden make an appearance at some point in the game as Kaehler is injured. Expect Bawden to play the 4th quarter and possibly sooner depending on the score of the game.

UNLV Overall (1-3 and Conf (0-0)

Taking a look at the national rankings listed at the top of the article this is a really bad UNLV football team. They have been unable to stop the run this season and it shows. They are the worst team in the FBS ranked dead last 125th in rush defense. UNLV is going to need to shut down the Aztecs running game if they wish to win this game. UNLV has not defeated San Diego State at home since 2000. UNLV is coming off a good season and a trip to a bowl game. You may ask the question why is UNLV so bad this season, Injuries. The UNLV Injury list is sitting at 19 members (7 out, 6 doubtful, 4 questionable and 2 probable) and that list can be viewed under the UNLV Schedule.

at. Arizona = 58 to 13
