Qualcomm Stadium and the San Diego State Aztecs host the Fresno State Bulldogs Saturday.
The high powered Bulldogs stayed perfect with a one sided 38-14 victory over visiting UNLV on Saturday. Fresno State improved to 6-0 behind strong performances from both sides of the ball as FSU took a 28-14 lead after minutes and were never challenged. The numbers tell of how dominant the Bulldogs were with a 641-294 advantage in real estate behind strong running and throwing. Fresno ran for over 200 yards and averaged over five yards per touch with the duo of Marteze Waller and Josh Quezada doing the majority of the damage with 153 yards on 27 carries. Derek Carr was prolific through the air on 33-48 for 412 yards with four touchdowns with Davante Adams snaring eight balls for 221 yards and all four TD's.

After kicking off the 2013 campaign 0-3, San Diego State has reeled off three consecutive victories following a 27-20 win over Air Force heading in to their bye week. The Aztecs are 2-0 in MWC West and are riding some opportune scoring in this short stretch behind a top 50 passing attack although the Aztecs were able to both run and throw effectively versus the Falcons. Donnel Pumphrey paced a productive ground game with 117 yards while Adam Muema gave the team a quality second option with another 86 yards. Quinn Kaehler took care of business in the air with 249 passing yards with three touchdowns andan interception with Ezell Ruffin snagging six balls for 108 yards. The key might have been the defense holding the Air Force option to 169 yards.
Right now I'm leaning Fresno State if they can continue to play a full 60 minutes on both sides of the ball which hasn't always happened...
