On the season, San Diego State is averaging 71 points per game while their defense is giving up 62.7 points per game. San Diego State is led by Matt Mitchell who averages 15.8 points and shoots 45.2 percent from the field and 37.2 percent from deep
On the other side of this matchup is the Utah State Aggies who sit with a 9-3 record overall and coming into this game they have won eight games in a row.
