“Aztecs Football–Nowhere to Go”
The final game of the regular season is Saturday night for San Diego State..on the road…against (9-1) BYU.
The Aztecs are (4-3), a season of disappointment, with no bowl game on the horizon.
They face a high octane Cougars offense, an even bigger challenge considering SDSU has been anemic at quarterback, having played 3-different starters this season.
San Jose State, Fresno State, Boise State, Nevada have all had strong seasons. Hard to believe SDSU is the 5th best team in the league. The losses to San Jose and Nevada killed them in the conference race. The scheduling and non-conference loss at Colorado killed their bowl chances.
That and the pandemic which has seen 11-bowl games cancelled so far.
Coach Brady Hoke had lots to say about his QB-Jordan Brookshire’s game winning peformance last week against Colorado State, and about BYU.
Brady Hoke Press Conference:
..Brookshire will be the starting QB against BYU..he earned this
..He handled the game well
..Managed the playbook…was decisive…elusive
..Not surprised…told him in fall to be ready..be prepared
..He competes all the time
..Lucas Johnson may play as backup QB-with a special package
..Our guys know the history of the BYU rivalry over 38-games
..The venue in Provo is tough
..BYU defense is very ‘salty’…300-yards per game
..BYU QB-Zach Wilson plays alot like Andy Dalton of TCU days
..Wilson makes plays..extends plays with his feet..
..Takes care of the football..has big time-big play WRs
..BYU is (9-1) for a reason-they are good
..They accepted challenge to go to Coastal Carolina on 2-days notice
..BYU defense goes gets ball-gives Wilson more opportunities
..BYU leaving Mountain West-hurt this league
..Would like to see BYU part of the league again
..Worrying about Saturday game-not scheduling BYU in future
..No we will not attempt to schedule another league game the weekend of Championship game.
