The San Diego State Aztecs look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The San Diego State Aztecs have won all five road games this season. Ryan Agnew is completing 63.5 percent of his passes for 1,946 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. Agnew has one or less touchdown passes in each of his last four games. Kobe Smith and Jesse Matthews have combined for 992 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Daniel Bellinger has 12 receptions. The San Diego State Aztecs ground game is averaging 141.8 yards per contest, and Juwan Washington leads the way with 450 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, San Diego State is allowing 13.7 points and 270 yards per game. Kyahva Tezino leads the San Diego State Aztecs with 84 tackles, Myles Cheatum has five sacks and Luq Barcoo has seven interceptions.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors look for another win after splitting their last six games. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have won four of their last six home games. Cole McDonald is completing 63.6 percent of his passes for 3,007 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. McDonald has four touchdown passes in four of his last 10 games. Cedric Byrd II and JoJo Ward have combined for 1,778 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns while Jared Smart has 61 receptions. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors ground game is averaging 151.1 yards per contest, and Miles Reed leads the way with 659 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Hawai'i is allowing 33.7 points and 431.4 yards per game. Solomon Matautia leads the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors with 57 tackles, KK Padello has three sacks and Ikem Okeke has three interceptions.
The Aztecs are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games on fieldturf, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-9 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Rainbow Warriors are 17-37-1 ATS in their last 55 home games, 15-35-1 ATS in their last 51 conference games and 18-41-2 ATS in their last 61 games overall. The Aztecs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Hawaii and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Rainbow Warriors last 6 games overall. The under is 51-25-1 in Aztecs last 77 games overall.
The San Diego State Aztecs are 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a road underdog. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are 1-10-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite. The San Diego State Aztecs have shown they can win on the road all season long and have allowed 17 or less points in five of their last six games. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors were really solid defensively last week in a road win over UNLV and the return of McDonald at quarterback makes this offense one of the scarier units in college football. Trips to the island can be tough on visiting teams and Hawaii has been consistent all year long. The San Diego State Aztecs may be the better team, but I'm riding with Hawaii on its home turf.
