    Why Nevada Will Win

    Will San Diego State be looking ahead to the Mountain West championship? Nevada has enough of a running game to potentially catch the Aztecs napping, and more than anything else, it doesn’t screw things up. Fifth in the nation in turnover margin, the Wolf Pack know how to come up with the big plays and capitalize. SDSU does a lot of things well, and Nevada does most of the same things right. Stop the Aztec running game, stop the Aztecs, but …

    Why San Diego State Will Win

    SDSU does things better. No. 1 in the nation in turnover margin, 16th in the nation in rushing, and fifth in run defense, the Aztecs have been sharp ever since losing to Penn State at the end of September. The defense has been phenomenal all season long with the front to keep Nevada from getting into any sort of a rushing groove. Great at keeping the ball and owning time of possession, the Aztecs should be able to keep Nevada off the field.

    What’s Going To Happen?

    Expect no passing, some excellent ground games, and yet another terrific defensive performance from the Aztecs. SDSU hasn’t allowed more than 17 points in the last seven games – that’s not going to change this week.
