By beating Wyoming 38-3 Saturday night at Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego State became bowl-eligible for a sixth straight season and is one win away from clinching a spot in the Mountain West championship game.

If SDSU (6-0, 6-3 MW) beats UNLV this Saturday in Las Vegas, it will win the West division of the MW, securing a spot in the championship game against the team that wins the Mountain division.

The Aztecs have been getting their wins in style of late, beating their last four opponents by at least 23 points, which is the longest streak in the nation.

They’ve also won six straight games by 10 or more points, placing them in a tie nationally with Clemson (No. 1 in the last College Football Playoff poll) and Arkansas State.

Six seems to be a magic number for the Aztecs, as their six-game winning streak is their longest since closing out the 2012 season with seven straight wins.

Senior running back Chase Price had a career day vs. Wyoming, rushing for a career-high 152 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries. Fellow running back, junior Donnel Pumphrey, added 140 yards on 29 attempts and three receptions for 29 yards.

UNLV (3-7, 2-4 MW) is coming off a 49-35 loss to Colorado State last Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Last year, the Aztecs took down the Runnin’ Rebels 34-17 at Qualcomm Stadium.

Saturday’s game can be seen on CBS Sports Network and heard on The Mighty 1090 AM.
