Penn State looks to build off it’s most impressive win of the season as they welcome in San Diego State for a Week 4 battle.
The Nittany Lions routed Rutgers 28-3 and had their offense finally looking somewhat organized.
The Aztecs had a horrible home loss to South Alabama where their defense couldn’t stop anybody in a 34-27 loss.
Kick off is set for 3:30 PM EST on Big Ten Network.
San Diego State
The Aztecs have dropped 2 straight and their defense looks to be crumbling. After allowing 35 points to California, the Aztecs saw South Alabama put up a 34 spot in an overtime loss.
Junior Donnel Pumphrey gave the Aztecs the lead with 2:05 left in the game last week, which has pretty much summed up their entire season.
Pumphrey has run for 249 yards and a score and has also led the team in receptions with 9 for 92 yards. QB Maxwell Smith has thrown for 394 yards with a pair of touchdowns and interceptions.
The loss on Saturday snapped a 9 game home winning streak for San Diego State.
The Nittany Lions offensive struggles have highlighted their 2-1 start thus far. Penn State’s QB Christian Hackenberg has completed less than 50% of his passes and continues to struggle throwing the ball down field.
Hackenberg has 372 yards on the season with just 1 touchdown toss and 2 interceptions to his name.
WR Chris Godwin has 14 receptions for 205 yards and has easily been the #1 guy for Hackenberg.
The reason for Penn State’s two wins? Their defense. The Nittany Lions defense ranks third in the FBS with 13 sacks already and is allowing the 12th fewest rush yards against with only 87.
Penn State is 4-0 all time against the MWC.

Penn State’s offense is a major concern as they’ve been a struggle, especially Hackenberg. Although, San Diego State just doesn’t have a good enough team nor track record to compete with the more physical Big 10 foe.
