San Diego State Overall (1-3) Conf (0-0)

The three players to look out for would be QB Maxwell Smith, RB Donnel Pumphrey and WR Mikah Holder. Smith, the Kentucky transfer, has completed 41 of 95 passes for 535 yards and three touchdowns. Pumphrey has had 86 carries for 305 yards and three touchdowns. So far this season Holder has 11 receptions for 168 yards. San Diego State’s offensive line will play a major role in how this game is played. 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 four games of the season. They will be going up against a bad offensive unit. The Aztec defense will need to hold out strong if they want to win this game. 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. This is one of two kick return touchdowns for Rashaad Penny. Penny is tied with  Aztec Alum Colin Lockett for most kick return touchdowns in a single season.

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.

Fresno State (1-3) and Conf (0-1)

The three players to look out for would be QB Chason Virgil, RB Marteze  Waller and WR Jamire JordanVirgil has completed 31 of 56 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Waller has had 85 carries for 379 yards. Jorden has 14 receptions for 191 yards and three touchdowns.

Taking a look at the national rankings listed at the top of the article Fresno State is an average team. Fresno 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 Fresno 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 , CAL and Penn State had been able to beat San Diego State deep by going after the safeties. If I am Fresno State I am going to challenge the safeties and secondary to stop us.
