Randy’s Pick

The Long Beach State 49ers haven't had much recent success when playing up to their level of competition, and this isn't a fun road game. The San Diego State Aztecs are usually bullies on their home court, and their defense hasn't missed a beat from a year ago. LBSU just doesn't see this sort of physicality often and is sure to struggle with the pressure. Give me the Aztecs in a comfortable home victory.
