The San Diego State Aztecs are ranked 15th in this week's Associated Press and coaches poll top 25 poll. SDSU was ranked 15th last week in both polls.

The Aztecs beat then-No. 25 Utah 53-49 and Cal State Bakersfield 51-27 last week as the No. 16 team, and those victories helped them move up to No. 15. The offense has been an issue for San Diego State but its defense has been stellar and holding opponents down.

San Diego State is playing in the Maui Invitational this week and start off playing with BYU who is getting a few points in the AP poll. The Aztecs have the chance to play No. 2 Arizona or Kansas State who is earning points in this weeks polls.

Wyoming is the only other team Mountain West team to be earning points in both the AP and coaches poll. The Cowboys are 3-0 and so far have wins over Western State, Northern Colorado and a dominant win over Colorado; it is the latter that is giving the Cowboys consideration for a top 25 ranking.
