San Diego State football will look to get back on track this Saturday against the University of Idaho after falling to the University of Nevada-Reno last week and losing their spot in first place atop the West division of the Mountain West Conference.
Following the game though, will be the annual KGB Sky Show, to commemorate SDSU’s Homecoming Week. The Aztecs are expecting a boost in crowd attendance, thanks to homecoming week, and the firework show.
“I was really happy with the last home game. We had a good crowd (35,688 against Hawaii) without a special promotion,” coach Rocky Long told UT-San Diego on Wednesday. “I think we’re a fun team to watch, and maybe some other people think we are too.”
Sophomore running back Donnel Pumphrey will look to get back on track this week after having his worst game of the season, where he had a season-low 13 carries and fumbled the ball twice, while rushing for 85 yards.
Idaho (1-7, 1-5) has struggled this season, but freshman quarterback Matt Linehan has had a nice year thus far throwing for a little over 250 yards-per-game with a 61.2 completion-percentage. However he has thrown 14 interceptions, compared to just nine touchdowns, something the Aztecs—who lead the Mountain West in total defense—may be able to capitalize on.
For the first time this season the Aztecs (4-4, 3-2) will air on Fox Sports San Diego, and kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m. PT, at Qualcomm Stadium.
