The Aztecs are on a five-win streak after dropping their season opener to the Stanford Cardinal. San Diego State needs just one more win for a bowl berth, and the only thing in their way is San Jose State. While the Aztecs have kept some games too close for comfort, San Jose State is unlikely to keep it close in Rocky Long’s 100th game as the Aztecs head coach. The Aztecs have home field advantage and it is homecoming night.
With a home win against the sputtering Spartans, the Aztecs punch their ticket to go bowling for a ninth straight season.
Does San Jose State stand a chance against the banged up Aztecs who will once again start with backup quarterback Ryan Agnew starting in place of Christian Chapman, and running back Chase Jasmin in place of Juwan Washington? Chapman should be nearly healed from his slight MCL tear, and Washington is still nursing his broken collarbone.
If the Spartans do somehow manage a win Saturday, it could be a major turning point for second-year head coach Brent Brennan program. Brennan has suggested that the Spartans do look to the Aztecs as a model of what a successful CSU program can do.
Quarterback Josh Love will likely suit up for Saturday, with Montel Aaron backing him up. They hope this combination will work. The Spartans also hope to see a breakout performance by Thai Cottrell.
San Jose State has shown impressive moments of competitiveness- but playing full bore for 60 minutes seems to be more than the Spartans can handle. Will they prove us wrong? We will find out tomorrow.
