34-17, Aztecs Over UNLV, Yet I’m Not Entirely Happy

Pumphrey had a great game.  4 touchdowns and 167 yards rushing.  Truly outstanding.  The offense rolled for 466 yards.  But, Kaehler continues to look less than sharp.  16/27/0 reads well enough, but I find anemic the 209 yards passing.  Only one sack was well done on behalf of the offensive line.  The Aztec front five did a fine job dominating the Rebels.  Just ask Pumphrey.

The UNLV qb throwing for 346 yards was living proof the last 5 of the Aztec defense having a collective bad game.  I know I’m in full complaint mode, but I found disappointing the 6/14 third down conversions and the 2/2 fourth down efforts.  UNLV is a bad football team.  The Aztec defense should not hand out second chances.  However, sacking the UNLV qb on 6 separate occasions was impressive.  Alex Barrett especially so.

1-0 in conference play.  Candidly, the fact that Fresno State had such a hard time defeating UNM displays real opportunity for SDSU to take the West.  Boise losing to Air Force means the Mountain division is a likely free for all.  If the Aztecs can remain undefeated at home and at the very least split the road games that means a 6-2 MWC record.  Three of the next four games are on the road (at Fresno, at UNM, Hawaii at the Q followed by a trip to Reno).  Taking two of those three road games is more than possible.
