San Diego State vs Nevada Game Preview
Why San Diego State Will Win
The rested Aztecs should be able to run as much as they want to.
The ground game hasn’t been as effective or dominant as it needs to be over the last six quarters ever since QB Braxton Burmeister got knocked out.
Jalen Mayden – the hero in the win over Hawaii is starting, Burmeister might work at receiver, and the rushing attack should work against a Nevada defense that’s getting hammered.
Nevada’s offense is struggling, the run defense is among the worst in the Mountain West, and …
Why Nevada Will Win
San Diego State’s offense doesn’t score without needing a whole lot of help.
It’s like the team forgot that they idea was to get the ball in the end zone. The Aztecs haven’t scored more than 17 points in any of the last four games, the passing game still needs to prove it can be consistent even with the changes, and now it’s up to Nevada to take advantage of it.
A few points should get it done. Nevada has to try getting the ground game going against an SDSU D that was hammered by Boise State and Hawaii.
What’s Going To Happen
Nevada has had to travel way too much. It had the emotional loss to Colorado State, went to Hawaii and lost, and now is back in Reno.
San Diego State had two weeks off, the offense should build on the positives against Hawaii, and the two attacks that struggle so much will make this interesting into the fourth quarter. The fresher team will have a little more.
