The San Diego State Aztecs (3 - 1, 0 - 1 CONF) are on the road this week as they seek to challenge the Colorado State Rams (1 - 4, 0 - 1 CONF). Colorado State will be hosting this game at the Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins, CO. Colorado State rolls into this game having lost three-straight matchups. San Diego State will be looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season, a nailbiter against USU.
The San Diego State Aztecs come into this game equipped with a stellar defense and a limited offense. San Diego State is scoring just 19 PPG on offense this season while giving up just 12 PPG to opposing squads. San Diego State likes to run the ball with Jordan Byrd (207 yards, 2 TD) so expect the Aztecs to push the rock on the ground in this game.
The Colorado State Rams are looking to get their heads on straight with a tough win here. Colorado State is scoring 32 PPG on offense this season while surrendering a jaw-dropping 39 PPG to opposing squads. Offensively, CSU likes to air the ball out with QB Collin Hill (837 yards, 8 TDs, 2 INT). We expect Colorado State to put up a ton of points in this matchup, but the Rams still need to get stops on defense.
The Rams are scoring decent, but their defense is playing downright horrible this year. The Rams are a team that if the defense played better would have a chance in this game. The Aztecs defense has played quite a bit better on the year compared to what the Rams have and that leads to the Rams offense struggling in this game. We like San Diego State to defeat Colorado State in a closely fought game. Final Score Prediction, San Diego State Aztecs win, but fail to cover 27 - 20.
