San Diego State is 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.
I’m leaning towards San Diego State in this game as the Aztecs really started to turn it up down the stretch, and are always a tough defensive unit to crack. Colorado State got a nice win against Fresno State in the last round, but they didn’t have a ton of luck slowing down the Aztecs in the last round and I think they’re going to have some troubles here too. I’ll lay the points with San Diego State here.
