Walter Kazee injury: San Diego State running back tears ACL

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

San Diego State will be without backup running back Walter Kazee for the Poinsettia Bowl

San Diego State senior running back Walter Kazee's football career is over as he tore his ACL on the very first play of the game against Wyoming this past Saturday. He continued to play, but he took an awkward turn and had to leave the game:

"Then I finally couldn't run anymore after I made a cut back to my left, and that was the end of it," Kazee said. "It is very frustrating. I love football, I love playing with these guys. They're like my brothers, and I'm disappointed that I can't play.

With Kazee being a senior, his football career is over. During this past season Kazee stepped nicely along side Adam Muema to replace Ronnie Hillman who left for the NFL. Kazee rushed for 822 yards and scored eight touchdowns this year.

This is a big loss for San Diego State as they prepare to face the BYU Cougars in a few weeks for the Poinsettia Bowl. The BYU rush defense is ranked third in the nation and only allows 87 yards per game, and now the running game will now fall upon Muema to have a good game against the stout BYU rush defense.
