What to Know
The San Diego State Aztecs are 3-1 against the Utah State Aggies since October of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. The Aztecs and Utah State will face off in a Mountain West battle at 3 p.m. ET at Dignity Health Sports Park. San Diego State has a defense that allows only 17.25 points per game, so Utah State’s offense will have their work cut out for them.
San Diego State netted a 27-16 win over the Boise State Broncos last week. San Diego State QB Jordon Brookshire was slinging it as he passed for one TD and 192 yards on 15 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 46 yards.
San Diego State’s defense was a presence as well, as it got past Boise State’s offensive line to sack the QB four times for a total loss of 27 yards. Leading the way was DL Jonah Tavai and his three sacks. Tavai now has 5.5 sacks this year.
Meanwhile, the Aggies turned the game against the New Mexico Lobos into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 440 yards to 186. Utah State put the hurt on New Mexico with a sharp 35-10 victory. The team ran away with 28 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win. It was another big night for Utah State’s QB Logan Bonner, who passed for five TDs and 312 yards on 22 attempts. Bonner’s 76-yard touchdown toss to WR Derek Wright in the second quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the afternoon.
San Diego State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 2-4-1 against the spread when favored.
The wins brought the Aztecs up to 11-1 and the Aggies to 9-3. San Diego State is 9-1 after wins this season, Utah State 6-2.
