    Why San Diego State Will Win

    The defense has been absolutely stifling. The Aztecs haven’t allowed more than 17 points in any of the last six games during their winning streak, and they’re more than used to playing on the road with three of the last five victories coming away from home. The UNLV offense is working, but the defense is getting run over – SDSU will run at will.

    Why UNLV Will Win

    The Rebel offense has found its groove. The running game has been solid over the last several weeks, while the passing game has been bombing away with close to 1,000 yards over the last three games with five touchdowns. In its home finale, the attack could get hot early and make the Aztecs fight from behind – this is a front-running SDSU team with its running attack.

    What’s Going To Happen?

    UNLV will play well at home, but it’s not going to blow it now. The defense will rise up after a rocky start, while the ground game will crank out well over 200 yards on the way to the West title.
