Juwan Washington has rushed for 513 yards and five scores while Chase Jasmin has 460 rushing yards and four scores. Washington broke his collarbone and is out for multiple weeks while Jasmin is dealing with a concussion and is questionable for this game.

San Diego State
San Diego State has hit the under in 42 of its last 60 games in October and in 18 of its last 24 games following a failed cover.
Nevada has hit the under in 12 of its last 15 games in October and in 20 of its last 28 games following a cover.
San Diego State is going to have to rely heavily on its defense in this game. The Aztecs’ offense is banged up at its strength and that should keep them from being able to move the ball well against Nevada. It will be up to SDSU to step up and slow down the Nevada defense if it hopes to win, which I still feel it can. Look for San Diego State to grind out longer drives on offense and force Nevada to drive down the field as well on offense.
