The San Diego State Aztecs are going through the motions right now, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt based on their losses, as they all came against really good teams. The Air Force Falcons can't get stops defensively and have been fade material for the years. This feels like a game that San Diego State can use to kind of right the ship a bit. Air Force just isn't a good club and gets waxed against quality teams. I'll lay the chalk.
