San Diego State welcomes Utah State for first conference game

UCLA v. San Diego State

San Diego State (3-0) will host Utah State (1-1) to kickoff conference play for both teams.

The Aztecs have started the season strong and do not give any signs of slowing down against the Aggies.

SDSU has been effective offensively scoring four touchdowns on the ground and two through the air.

Senior quarterback Ryan Agnew has been very consistent through the first three games only throwing one pick.

Sophomore running back Jordan Byrd had an outstanding game against New Mexico State as he rushed for 118 yards and scored twice.

The Aztecs have been in need of a back that can put up 100 yards every week.

If Byrd can have a repeat performance, then SDSU might have found their running back for the next few years.

With only two games completed it is hard to know the identity of this Utah State team.

Their first matchup was a loss to Wake Forest 35-38 and then dominated Stony Brook the next week 62-7.

One thing to learn from these two games is that Utah State likes to throw the ball.

Junior quarterback Jordan Love has thrown for 710 yards and four touchdowns this season.

The upside for San Diego State is that Love has three interceptions so far and the Aztec secondary has been living up to expectations.

If SDSU plays as well as they have in the first three weeks of the season, then they should have no problem defeating Utah State.
