Utah State vs. San Diego State Prediction

I’m on Utah State here. I get it, the Aztecs have the defense that they’re known for and are the defending national runners up. However, the Aggies are no joke and have the offense to be able to hang here. If it was the other way around, I’d likely take the points with San Diego State. This is just a game where I want points in my pocket however they come, so give me Utah State and the points.
