Aztecs cruise to 31-0 win over New Hampshire in opener

San Diego State cruised to a 31-0 victory over New Hampshire in its opening game of the 2016 season.

Sophomore Quarterback Christian Chapman finished 16-for-25, throwing for a career-high 283 yards and two touchdowns. Chapman’s night was highlighted by an 86-yard pass to Mikah Holder in the first quarter.

Holder had a career night as well.

The Sophomore wide receiver notched a career-high 160 reaching yards and tied his personal best with two touchdown receptions. It was the first 100-yard game of Holder’s career and the first for an Aztecs receiver since Ezell Ruffin finished with 126 receiving yards vs. Air Force two years ago.

Junior running back Donnel Pumphrey ran for 98 yards on 21 attempts and scored a touchdown. He also caught four passes for 41 yards. The potential Heisman Trophy candidate moved from 74th in NCAA history to 64th in career-rushing yards, passing Bo Jackson (4,303). He now has 4,370 career rushing yards.

San Diego State’s defense was stout as expected.

New Hampshire was 0-14 on third downs, and held to just 141 total yards on offense. Senior Linebacker Calvin Munson led the Aztecs with 11 tackles and Senior Defensive End Alex Barret matched his career high with two sacks.

The Aztecs get a chance for revenge next Saturday at home when they take on Cal. San Diego State lost the Golden Bears at Cal last year 35-7.
