The Aztecs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Rainbow Warriors are 2-11-1 ATS in their last 14 games in October and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games. The Aztecs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Hawaii and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings overall.
SDSU is without its best offensive player and workhorse. Add the time zone shift and the travel, and I'll take Hawaii in a toss-up game.
