|Team||Total Offense||Pass OFF
||Rush OFF||Pass Def||Run Def|
San Diego State Overall (1-2) Conf (0-0)
The three players to look out for would be QB Maxwell Smith, RB Donnel Pumphrey and WR Eric Judge. Smith, the Kentucky transfer, has completed 31 of 66 passes for 394 yards and two touchdowns. Pumphrey has had 68 carries for 249 yards and two touchdowns. So far this season Judge has 6 receptions for 101 yards.San Diego State’s offensive line will play a major role in how this game is played. They played sloppy against California and Southern Alabama. We could once again see San Diego State use two quarterbacks but I would expect Rocky to only play Smith as the Aztecs offense slowed down against California when they changed quarterbacks. It will all depend on if the Aztecs can stop the pass rush of Penn State. I expect to see back up QB Christian Chapman at some point during the game. The San Diego State defense is going to tell us who wins this game. The Aztec defense has forced seven turnovers (6 Interceptions and 1 Fumble) in the first three games of the season. They will be going up against good passing attack. The Aztec defense will need to hold out strong if they want to win this game. San Diego State defense will need to be able to shut down the Penn State running game if they wish to win. The defense that comes away with the most take aways will win the game.
- Special teams will play a huge role in this game. The edge this week will defiantly go to San Diego State. Here is Rashaad Penny going 97 yards to the house in the first week of the season against University of San Diego.
Also, the Aztecs have a weapon in field goal kicker Donny Hageman who nailed a 54 yard field goal against the University of Southern Alabama.

Penn State Overall (2-1) and Conf (1-0)
The three players to look out for would be QB Christian Hackenberg, RB Saquon Barkley and WR Chris Godwin. Hackenberg has completed 35 of 71 passes for 372 yards and one touchdown. Barkley has had 34 carries for 311 yards and three touchdowns. Godwin has 14 receptions for 205 yards.
Taking a look at the national rankings listed at the top of the article Penn State is a good team.Penn State is going to need to shut down the Aztecs running game if they wish to win this game. They will want to force San Diego State to throw the football. Offensively Penn State will want to keep the ball away from the SDSU Defensive backs. The SDSU Secondary is the best in the Mountain West Conference. The smart play would be to throw underneath the secondary for 5- to 7- yard gains or throw deep. Southern Alabama and CAL was able to beat San Diego State deep by going after the safeties. If I am Penn State I am going to challenge the safeties and secondary to stop us.
Loss at. Temple = 27 – 10
Win vs. Buffalo = 27 – 14
