Howdy, folks, hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas Eve. Today we have a new AP poll, an SDSU player declaring for the draft and of course a new player of the week.
The week 8 AP poll features San Diego State moving up 5 spots to #15. The Aztecs are still the only MW team ranked, Utah State checks in with 36 votes. Utah State and San Diego State face off on January 4th which is sure to be one of the best games of the MW season.
SDSU junior offensive lineman, Keith Ismael, has declared for the NFL draft. Ismael announced the decision on Twitter, saying coming to SDSU was the best decision of his life while also thanking his coaches. The Oakland native was a first team all-Mountain West selection the past two seasons while being a second team selection as a freshman.
Derrick Alston is 13th leading scorer in the country
