We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California. The UC Davis Aggies make the short trip to take on the San Diego State Aztecs.
This is the first meeting between the teams in recent history.
UC Davis Aggies
The UC Davis Aggies have had a tough couple of seasons the last few years, and that continued last year. They finished with a 3-8 record and 9th place in the Big Sky.
They made a coaching change at the end of last season, and they hope that the new staff will be able to turn around a program that hasn’t had a winning season since 2010.
The strength and the weakness of this team have to do with the running game. Junior Joshua Kelley will be the lead back this year after the graduation of Manusamoa Luuga.
Kelley rushed for 609 yards and four touchdowns last year as the change of pace back.
The big weakness for this team is with the rush defense, and that isn’t a good thing when you have to face the Aztecs.
Last year this Aggies team gave up almost 200 yards on the ground per game, and they are going to have to be better in this game if they want to pull the upset.
San Diego State Aztecs
The San Diego State Aztecs are building something special in the Mountain West. They finished with an 11-3 record and first place in the Mountain West West division.
They then went on to defeat Wyoming in the Mountain West championship game. The Aztecs are going to have to replace Donnel Pumphrey, who is the NCAA leading rusher of all time.
But that actually shouldn’t be that tall of a task. Rashaad Penny rushed for 1000 yards last year, and he should have no issues being the lead back on this team this year.
Quarterback Christian Chapman isn’t spectacular by any means, but he does enough to make throws in big situations, and he doesn’t turnover the ball, which is exactly what the Aztecs need him to do.
On the defensive side of the ball this team isn’t spectacular by any means, but they have done a great job of turning the ball over.
Over the last two seasons this team has the most interceptions in the country with 49 of them. To have success this year they are going to have to be strong in the back end of the defense again.

The Aztecs have had issues with FCS level schools in the past, but I don’t think that will be the case again in this one.

With how bad the Aggies are against the run, and how good the Aztecs are running the ball, this game is going to get ugly early.
