The Aztecs are hot off of a 20-17 win at home against No. 19 Stanford that vaulted SDSU into the top 25. San Diego State outgained Stanford by 99 yards, turned the Cardinal over three times, and controlled the time of possession 41:14 to 18:46.
Led by a 32-carry, 175 yard, 1 touchdown performance from running back Rashaad Penny, San Diego State proved it has the capability to hang, and win, in a spotlight matchup.
