The Utah Utes and San Diego State Aztecs face off on Saturday in a Week 3 college football showdown at the StubHub Center. The last time these two teams faced off was in 2010 and it was Utah that came away with the 38-34 victory. 

The Utah Utes come into this game with a 1-1 record overall and in their last game against BYU they were defeated 26-17. Ten of the points came in the 4th quarter, but they were already down too many points to come away with the victory. Under center for Utah is Charlie Brewer and in the last game he completed 15 of his 26 passes for 147 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Running back Micah Bernard was also a bright spot having 12 carries for 146 yards and a touchdown. In this game if Utah wants to win this game, they are going to need the offense to be better.

On the other side of this matchup is the San Diego State Aztecs who have won their first two games including an impressive 38-14 victory over Arizona in the last game. San Diego State scored 21 points in the first quarter and then they never looked back. Quarterback Jordan Brookshire only had 15 passing attempts but he threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Greg Bell had a big game rushing 17 times for 125 yards and a touchdown. San Diego State has given up only 24 points in the first two games, and in this game, they need the defense to be good.

Utah is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games against the Mountain West. San Diego State is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight home games. The favorite is 5-0 in the last five meetings played between the two teams. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings played in San Diego State. 

This line is way off. San Diego State has proven they have a good defense, and although this is going to be a bigger test than Arizona, the Aztecs are still going to find success. Utah isn’t an elite offensive team, and San Diego State’s defense is going to find success. Back San Diego State to cover the spread. I will also be throwing a few dollars on the Aztecs to cover the spread.
