San Diego State (5-3) and Conf (4-0)
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 73 of 147 passes for 1060 yards and 8 touchdowns. Pumphrey has had 182 carries for 910 yards and 10 touchdowns. Pumphrey is also leading the Aztecs in receiving with 19 receptions for 249 yards and 1 touchdown. So far this season Holder has 15 receptions for 230 yards and 3 touchdowns. San Diego State’s offensive line will play a major role in how this game is played. They have been playing a lot better of late since the conference season started and especially with the return of Greene.
The San Diego State defense is going to tell us who wins this game. The Aztec defense has forced 17 turnovers (11 Interceptions and 6 Fumbles) in eight games this season. 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. The Aztec defense has been unstoppable and is now ranked 11th in the nation in total defense. We have included the two best hits to date.

JAKE FELY SACK & FORCED FUMBLE
- 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. Penny has 13 kick returns for an average 36 yards per return and a total of 468 yards.
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. Hageman is 10 for 14 this year on field goals and is 27/27 on extra points. Hageman is second on the team in overall points scored with 57.

Colorado State (3-4) and Conf (1-2)
The three players to look out for would be QB Nick Stevens, RB Jason Oden and WR Rashard Higgins.Stevens has completed 121 of 201 passes for 1486 yards and 13 touchdowns. Oden has had 117 carries for 523 yards and 4 touchdowns. Higgins has 41 receptions for 543 yards and 4 touchdowns. Taking a look at the national rankings listed at the top of the article Colorado State is a average team. Colorado 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 Colorado State will want to keep the ball away from the SDSU Defensive backs. The SDSU Secondary is the best in the Mountain West Conference according to preseason rankings. The smart play would be to throw underneath the secondary for 5- to 7- yard gains or throw deep. If I am Colorado State I am going to challenge the safeties and secondary to stop us.
