San Diego State (8-3) and Conf (7-0)

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 107 of 197 passes for 1485 yards and 13 touchdowns. Pumphrey has had 245 carries for 1310 yards and 14 touchdowns. Pumphrey is also leading the Aztecs in receptions with 24 receptions for 325 yards and 2 touchdowns. So far this season Holder has 21 receptions for 356 yards and 5 touchdowns. The San Diego State defense is going to tell us who wins this game. The Aztec defense has forced 28 turnovers to lead the NATION (18 Interceptions and 10 Fumbles) in 11 games this season. The Aztec defense has been unstoppable and is now ranked 10th in the nation in total defense. We have included the three best hits to date.

Damontae Kazee Lights up USU WR.


Calvin Munson Monster Hit

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 18 kick returns for an average 33.3 yards per return and a total of 599 yards.

Also, the Aztecs have a weapon in field goal kicker Donny Hageman who nailed  two 54 yard field goal’s (University of Southern Alabama and Colorado State). Hageman is 14 for 18 this year on field goals and is 44/44 on extra points. Hageman is second on the team in overall points scored.

Nevada (6-5) and Conf (4-3)


The three players to look out for would be QB Tyler Stewart, RB James Butler and WR J Richardson. Tyler Stewart has completed 168 of 290 passes for 1837 yards and 15 touchdowns. James Butler has had 175 carries for 1133 yards and 8 touchdowns. Richardson has 58 receptions for 602 yards and 5 touchdowns. Taking a look at the national rankings listed at the top of the article Nevada is an average team. Nevada 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 Nevada 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 Nevada I am going to challenge the safeties and secondary to stop us. This is be one hell of a game for football nuts. Expect both teams to run the ball.
