The Aggies are coming off a huge win which sets them up nicely to represent their division in the MWC title game.
San Diego State is the only other team without a loss in the conference so this is pretty big for the MWC this week.
Utah State had one of the more surprising performances of last week in beating Boise State 52-26, the Broncos seemingly never lose like that.
The Aggies forced Boise into a shocking 8 turnovers, explaining the score juxtaposed to the fact that they only outgained them by one yard.
Utah State is still without QB Chuckie Keeton.
The key to this one is likely to be the Aggies run defense, which is ranked seventh in the nation. It it holds up they are likely to be able to win on the road.
This team is being led by a defense that is better than most people think as the offense has been struggling with inconsistency without Keeton.
They are going to be flying high off of last week’s win so this is a very definite letdown spot. These programs have not met since 2010.
San Diego State
The Aztecs started slow, proving that they are not all that fearsome in the non-conference part of their schedule but since the competition got more familiar they have won three in a row, covering all three.
SDSU has a simple game plan. They want to run the ball and play defense. It may not be sexy or a great recruiting tool but it is working in conference play.
RB Donnell Pumphrey may be small but he has ripped off 100+ yard games in all of their recent string of victories and is one of the more underrated running backs in the country. He will make it tough for Utah State because he is hard to see behind their line at times and have great agility.
On defense look for the Aztecs to make it difficult for Utah State’s quarterback. They will force him to beat them.

I was surprised to see the Aggies as such significant favourites in this one. Might be an overreaction to last week.
