San Diego State (6-1) vs. Utah State (3-4) Game Preview

Game Time: 8:00 pm
Venue: Romney Stadium, Logan, UT
Network: CBS Sports Network
San Diego State still needs to beat Hawaii, and it needs to survive a run of three road games in the next four weeks, but the defending Mountain West champ is hitting its stride at just the right time outscoring opponents in the last three games by a combined score of 85 to 13.
RB Donnel Pumphrey has been every bit as good as expected, tearing off 1,246 yards and 13 scores averaging over 6.5 yards per carry, looking stronger and stronger as the season has gone on.
He dominated Utah State last year in a blowout, and now it’s up to him again against a run defense that’s okay, not great. Against the Aztecs, it has to be special.
The Aggie D has been solid, but the offense hasn’t been able to show up and do much of anything against decent defenses on the schedule, only showing up against Weber State, Arkansas State and Fresno State.
And it’s not going to enter the stadium at home on a Friday night.
Utah State will hang around thanks to an inspired day from the defense, and the passing game should work a bit against a secondary hit hard by suspensions, but it won’t be enough to overcome yet another strong performance from Pumphrey.
And yet another huge day from the Aztec run defense.
