SDSU tops Utah State 48-14 with strong running attack


This one was, surprisingly, over early.

As a matchup between the two undefeated teams in the Mountain West Conference, and with Utah State coming off an impressive win over Boise State and having an extra day of rest before this matchup against the SDSU Aztecs, nobody expected Rocky Long’s team to be up 17-0 in the 1st quarter or 24-0 early in the 2nd quarter.

The Utah State Aggies had a hard time stopping the Aztecs’ rushing attack, giving up more than 300 total rushing yards. In particular, Donnell Pumphrey continued his very impressive junior season, running for 7.9 yards per carry and ending the game with 181 yards and 2 touchdowns. Chase Price added in another 97 yards of his own, and Max Smith wasn’t asked to throw very often (he completed 6 of 10 passes).

The San Diego State defense, known as one of the best in the country, was too much for the Aggies to overcome. They turned the ball over 4 times (3 fumbles, 1 interception), which helped SDSU to nearly double the time of possession of USU.

    This was the best I’ve seen a San Diego State team play in 40 years, dominate defense, and a powerful offense. San Diego football fans need to support this terrific team!
