A game of monster runs and punting to perfection.

In no particular order, may I present Jordan Byrd with a 66 yard punt return and 53 yard run. Both for touchdowns. Braxton Burmeister sprinting 47 yards for a score as well as another rush of 16 yards. Jaylon Armstead rushing for 129 yards on 10 carries highlighted with a run for 61 yards and another for 23 yards. Cam Davis, a bruiser, granted not the size of Mr. Armstead, yet he runs well between the tackles, ran for 77 yards. Kenan Christon had a 34 yard dash. At game’s end the Aztecs tallied 380 yards rushing (8.8 ypc).

Jack Browning had five punts inside the 10 yard line (two were downed at the one yard line). 47.5 yard average made for a tough start again and again for Idaho State.

The SDSU defense was inconsistent. Bad numbers and good. Idaho State held the ball for 30+ minutes for 73 offensive plays. Yet, the Aztec defense was third down stingy (6 of 19) and pitched a shutout on fourth down (0 for 2). Two Bengal trips to the red zone yielded no points. However, SDSU gave up 338 total yards. I realize I’m bitching about allowing 7 points. I have standards.

Finally, congrats to Blake Martin as he made his Aztec debut (4 carries for 17 yards).

Go Aztecs.
