Bowl and Conference Implications
San Diego State is playing in the Mountain West Championship next week, but it doesn’t want to go in on a two-game slide. Colorado State is already bowl eligible.
What’s Going To Happen?
Can everyone stay healthy for the Aztecs? That’s all that matters as they try to stay in one piece for the Mountain West title game.
Oh sure, there’s an outside shot of possibly getting a New Year’s Six bowl game by winning out and getting some help, but last week’s loss to Wyoming all but killed those chances.
Will the coaching staff feed Donnel Pumphrey as he climbs up the record books? In the midst of a special season, he’s 145 yards away from the 2,000-yard mark, but again, he’s needed more next week against either Boise State, or in a repeat game against Wyoming.
But the Colorado State run defense will be very, very tempting.
The Rams were able to gear up their offense against New Mexico to win their third game in four to become bowl eligible, but overall this year the run D has been a problem, allowing 215 yards per game.
Will SDSU care? Yeah, in the final regular season home game, it’ll come out hot after last week’s loss, and the defense will slow down a suddenly smoking Ram attack that’s scored 42 points in three of the last four games.
Colorado State will make this interesting, but as the game goes on, the Aztec running game and D will take over.
