It’s a non-conference matchup between two great schools in California. The Stanford Cardinal will go on the road to take on the San Diego State Aztecs at Qualcomm Stadium. Hey at least someone is still using that stadium.
The Cardinal were dropped to the floor against USC as they lost 42-24, while San Diego State took care of another Pac-12 opponent Arizona State 30-20 Saturday.
Everybody thought it would be a much closer game, but everybody was wrong. After picking up a huge win against Rice in their season opener, the Cardinal were sent back to reality with a huge loss to rival USC.
Stanford was within striking distance for most of the first half as they were four points away from tying in up with three minutes to play before the end of the 2nd half. Unfortunately, a last second touchdown before the end of the quarter destroyed momentum.
The famous Stanford offense was quiet as a mice as they only totaled 343 yards of offense with 16 first downs and only having the ball a little over 25 minutes.
On the defensive side, Stanford gave up a record high 623 total yards, 28 first downs and over 35 minutes of offensive play time to Southern California. Not good..Not good..
At the moment, the Cardinal is tied for 40th in the FBS with 270.5 yards through the air while being 34th in rushing with 228.5 yards per game.
San Diego State Aztecs
San Diego State has another chance of knocking off another Pac-12 team as they will host the Stanford Cardinal Saturday night in San Diego.
Last year, the Aztecs remained unbeaten as they knocked off the Sun Devils in Tempe.
The first quarter finished with a 7-7 score, but with a kick return from the Aztecs that resulted in a touchdown to kick off the 2nd quarter, it was all San Diego State from there.
It was great play throughout the whole game as the Aztecs are slowing taking down top named schools, mostly in the Pac-12.
On the offensive side, the Aztecs had 352 total yards of offense with 15 first downs and over 32 minutes of play.
On the defensive side, San Diego State held the Sun Devils to 342 total yards of offense with 14 first downs and 28 minutes of play. Extremely close, but the Aztecs used their time wisely.
Coming into this game, San Diego State is ranked 15th in the nation with 277.5 rushing yards per game which will be used against the Cardinal. They are also ranked 54th in the nation with an average of 34 points per game.
