Many fans and price per head call centers saw that Navy won a place in a bowl game for a third year in a row. San Diego State’s season didn’t move beyond average, as they were never able to win over two meetings, but they also didn’t lose two straight matchups, with a record of 7-5.
The Aztecs had one of the country’s best rushing attacks – at 30th place – and also had passing offense with a 106th placed ranking, which is really nothing impressive at all. This season, San Diego State depended a lot on their run, as they often relied on RB Donnel Pumphrey. The player was able to rush for 1,761 yards and 19 TD’s, with a 6.9 yards-per-carry average this season.
The 605 yards with five rushing TD’s by RB Chase Price worked well for the team’s second place. QB Quinn Kaehler was the one who led the Aztecs in their aerial game, as he passed for 2,016 yards and only threw 9 TD’s against his 10 picks. The team’s receivers didn’t really do anything special, but WR Eric Judge was the one who was leading the team when he caught the ball 23 times for 439 yards and two TD’s.
The Midshipmen have a ranking of second place in the nation when it comes to rushing yards in each game played, and in passing yards they have a national ranking of second-to-last place. It won’t be easy for QB Keenan Reynolds to throw the ball over 10 times in a meeting. This year, he was only able to throw for 749 yards with 5 TD’s and 3 interceptions. However, the player’s run turns him into a very big threat on the field. He’s the one leading the Midshipmen with 1,082 yards as well as 20 rushing TD’s, with FB Noah Copeland being second place on the team with 859 yards and 5 TD’s. If Navy have a single WR to look out for, it would come in the form of Jamir Tillman, with 338 yards, as well as 2 receiving TD’s.
When it comes to their defense, the Midshipmen were mostly struggling, as they’re ranked at only 88th place in total allowed yards-per-game, and 89th place in their points. However, price per head call centers saw that the Aztecs were completely different – ranked 14th place in their scoring defense. They also have a ranking of 21st place in total defense in the nation when it comes to allowed yards.
