NCAA SEASON LEADERS FBS
|Team||Total Offense||Pass OFF
||Rush OFF||Pass Def||Run Def|
San Diego State Overall (5-4) Conf (3-2)
The top four offensive players to look out for would be QB Quinn Kaehler, RB Donnel Pumphrey, WR Ezell Ruffin and WR Eric Judge. Kaehler has completed 120 of 207 passes for 1,483 yards and seven touchdowns. Pumphrey has had 183 carries for 1,216 yards (135.1 YPG) and 13 touchdowns. Eric Judge and Ezell Ruffin are both the favorite targets for San Diego State’s QB Quinn Kaehler. So far this season Judge and Ruffin have combined for 31 receptions, 562 yards and four of the seven receiving touchdowns thrown by Kaehler.
SDSU will have to defend Kaehler a lot better than they did against Idaho this past weekend as they gave up more than five sacks. The Boise State defensive line has some big bodies who can get after the quarterback. The Aztecs are going to need to have a balanced game if they plan on beating Boise State for the third straight season. The Boise State defense gave up more than 500 yards rushing to New Mexico last week and are going to be looking to shut down the run game of San Diego State. Look for SDSU to throw more this game than they normally would. If I was SDSU I would throw the five to seven yard slants and let Judge and Ruffin go one on one with the Boise State secondary.

Boise State Overall (7-2 and Conf 4-1)
Now let’s break down Boise State’s schedule up to this point in the season. Boise State lost to a very good Ole Miss squad who is ranked 10th in the nation and to a very good Air Force squad. Boise State killed bad teams such as Louisiana-Lafayette and Fresno State. Boise State beat good teams such as Colorado State, Connecticut, BYU and Nevada.
Boise State’s offense is one of the best in the nation when it comes to the national stats.The Boise State offense is ranked 8th in total offense as shown in the chart above. Look for Boise State to target the lack of pass rush and give Grant Hedrick the green light to run for the 1st down if he has space. San Diego State gave up six rushing first downs last week in the 1st half of the game to Idaho. I am expecting Boise State to exploit this fact. Idaho QB Chad Chalich picked up 80 yards on the ground in last weekend’s loss to SDSU. SDSU has major problems stopping running quarterbacks.
The Boise State offense is going to have to play a flawless game in the turnover battle and the Boise State 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. This piece of information is going to be disheartening to Boise State fans but SDSU has another great two-headed monster in the kick return game. Rashaad Penny and Kameron Kelly have had 16 returns for 394 yards an average of 25 yards per return this season. Both Penny and Kelly have broken returns of 40 yards plus multiple times this season and have been named Elite Football Network’s kick returners of the week multiple times this season. The Aztecs also have Lloyd Mills who has 16 punt returns for 179 yards (APR 11.2 yards) and one touchdown. The Aztecs have one thing in common when you look at the last two victories over Boise State, special teams touchdowns. SDSU has scored one special teams touchdown in each of their victories against Boise State. Boise will need to slow down the Aztec special teams attack if they wish to come out on top.
Loss vs. Ole Miss = 35 – 13

Now before we check out some of the current stats from both teams let’s check out the Stats from SDSU’s last victory in Boise, Idaho in 2012.
The most important thing for SDSU is going to be keeping up with Boise State play calling. When SDSU beat Boise State they both ran the same number of plays at 61. When you look at this years statistics you will see that Boise State lead’s SDSU in almost every category and almost by double. SDSU will need to keep the game close. They will need to keep Boise State under 200 yards passing as the did in 2012. SDSU has done a great job converting on third down conversions this season and will need to keep that up in order to beat Boise State.
