The San Diego State Aztecs (7-5, 5-3 Mountain West) dominated the San Jose State Spartans (3-9, 2-6 Mountain West) in every facet of the game and finished their regular season with a resounding 38-7 victory on senior night.
Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns in just the first quarter -- on pace to smash Samaje Perine's singe-game rushing record of 427 yards. SDSU's sophomore speedster cooled down slightly in quarters three through four, but still ended the game with 267 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries.
His backfield cohort, junior Chase Price, recorded 95 yards and a score on 21 carries.
Senior running back Lucky Radley topped off SDSU's senior night with a shifty touchdown run from 11 yards out to put his Aztecs up 38-0 with 2:54 left.
The only sour spot for the game would be SDSU's passing attack, which couldn't quite crack San Jose State's top-ranked pass defense. Quinn Kaehler completed just 4-15 passes for 34 yards, and Ezell Ruffin caught just two passes for 12 yards. These two seniors will have at least one more game to finish their SDSU careers on a high note.
SDSU's defense held a struggling Spartan offense to just 244 total yards on the day. It forced the Spartans into 11 three-and-outs and allowed the Aztec offense to have possession for 36:15.
All three San Jose State quarterbacks saw action today. Joe Gray didn't earn the start but he got the most snaps, completing 9-13 passes for 90 yards. Blake Jurich completed 7-15 passes for 43 yards and Mitch Ravizza completed just 1-2 passes for no yards.
SDSU has earned itself a bowl game appearance and now will root for Hawaii to beat Fresno State. If the Rainbow Warriors win, the Aztecs will represent the West division in the Mountain West championship game.
