“Aztecs-Backs Against the Wall”
It’s hard to understand how San Diego State’s football season could be in jeopardy, despite their (3-1) start
But it looks that way, feelsthtway, tastes that way right now,as the Aztecs get ready to head to Colorado State on Saturday.
The joy of the impressive win at UCLA has now been wiped away by home field loss to Utah State.
SDSU is still an unproven product on the field, especially the offense. They struggled in the 6-0 win over 1AA-Weber State. They dug themselves a huge hole in the Utah State setback.
Luckily for them Colorado State has its own set of problems,losing their passing star quarterback Collin Hill for the year,struggling on defense, and sitting at (1-4)t trying to save their season.\\
SDSU has the teeth of the schedule ahead of them, Wyoming, Fresno State, Hawaii and BYU. That’s why Saturday in Ft-Collins might be a must win game for both the Rams and the Red & Black.
