It’s time once again to release our watch/rooting guide for week 6. Our Aztecs snuck into the polls this week at #25 coming off of the bye week. We want them to continue to rise in the polls, so each team listed in bold, is who we need to win in order for SDSU to do that! Ok, here we go…
#15 Coastal Carolina @ Arkansas State 4:30P ESPNU
A little bit of a test for the undefeated Chanticleers. Hopefully we get some Thursday night silliness and Arkansas State can pull off the upset.
#5 Cincinnati vs Temple 4P ESPN
This will be an interesting one to watch as you have to think Cincy will have a bit of a let down after their big win against Notre Dame last week.
#22 ASU vs Stanford 7:30p ESPN
Another week another chance for Stanford to knockout a ranked PAC12 team. The only thing to be wary about is they might vault SDSU with another ranked win.
#7 Ohio State vs Maryland 9am Fox
Maryland is actually much improved under coach Mike Locksley, but they got throttled last week by Iowa.
#11 Michigan State @ Rutgers 9am BTN
Rutgers is another B1G doormat that is improving. I just don’t think they’ll be able help us out this week.
#20 Florida vs Vandy 9am SECN
Almost zero chance here as Vandy is uh…not good. If there were ever an example where Conference relegation should be implemented into college football, Vandy would be the one.
#10 BYU vs Boise State 12:30pm ABC
We covered this game in the latest SOM podcast. BYU should steamroll Boise based on the matchup but these two teams see this game as something of a rivalry, so anything might happen on Saturday.
#19 Wake Forest @ Syracuse 12:30pm ESPN2
Hopefully the Carrier Dome will be rocking! Dino Babers’ warp speed offense and Tony White’s 3-3-5 can get the upset for Syracuse and for us! $5 says you didnt know Wake Forest was located in North Carolina…
#24 SMU @ Navy 12:30pm CBSSN
Navy pulled off the upset last week against UCF. Hopefully they have another one in the tank.
San Jose State @ Colorado State 12:30pm FS1
When you’re vying for a NY6 spot you need some help from the teams on your schedule as well. CSU isn’t on our schedule this year so of course we’re pulling for the Spartans.
Air Force vs Wyoming 4pm CBSSN
Same as with the last game. We’re pulling for the Falcons on the road to hand the Cowboys their first loss of the season.
#9 Michigan @ Nebraska 4:30pm ABC
Nebraska seems to have recovered from their rough start. This could be an upset in the making and badly needed for Huskers coach Scott Frost.
#14 Notre Dame @ Virginia Tech 4:30pm ACCN
This could be a hangover game for Notre Dame as well against a tough VA Tech team. The two have only met each other three times all-time. The Hokies are looking to even the series at two a piece.
#16 Kentucky vs LSU 4:30pm SECN
#1 Alabama @ Texas A&M 5pm CBS
Go fake Army school!
Utah @ USC 5pm Fox
We need Utah to pull off the upset here to enhance our Aztecs’ strength of schedule. And well, at least one of these PAC-12 teams isn’t scared to play against SDSU, right!?
Arizona vs UCLA 7:30pm ESPN
Same. A first victory for the Wildcats couldn’t come at a better time this week.
*Bolded team is team to root for.
Go Aztecs! We need to take care of business with no let down. I wonder when Aztec Mesa’s UWphoto will try to pay off his bet. Is he a dead beat or just unable to make contact?
