San Diego State (4-1, 1-1 MW) is back on track as they took down conference opponent Colorado State (1-5, 0-2) by a score of 24-10.
The Aztecs needed this win as they opened conference play with a loss against Utah State and then had a bye week to make adjustments.
The biggest change was getting the secondary back to their elite level of play and senior cornerback Luq Barcoo did just that.
Barcoo picked off the Rams in three consecutive plays.
That has not happened in the FBS since 2012.
San Diego State never allowed the Colorado State offense to get comfortable, especially the run game.
The Rams were held to only 18 rushing yards and 217 passing yards.
Even though the defense was dominant in this matchup, the offense succeeded in capitalizing off of the Colorado State turnovers.
Ryan Agnew was consistent through the whole game completing 16 of his 20 passes for 147 yards and three touchdowns.
Sophomore wide receiver Kobe Smith led the team with two touchdowns and 101 yards.
Smith is now the leading receiver for the Aztecs with the most catches (25), yards (368), and touchdowns (4).
Senior running back Juwan Washington caught the other touchdown of the game and ended the day with two receptions for 17 yards.
The Aztecs still have not been able to establish their running game as a threat and will need to for their next more formidable opponent.
San Diego State will take on Wyoming at home on Saturday, October 12 at 7:30 p.m.
