The team traveled to Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins, Colo. to face the now 1-5 Rams.
San Diego State scored again in the third quarter after Kyahva Tezino forced a fumble, setting up another 8-yard touchdown pass from Agnew to Smith.
Ahead of the game, cornerback Luq Barcoo saw Ram mistakes as a key to the Aztecs’ chances. He had three interceptions Saturday, part of Colorado State’s four turnovers.
“There’s going to be some opportunities for turnovers and we just have to take advantage of those,” he said.
The Aztecs extended their lead to 24-3 when Agnew threw a 3-yard pass to Washington. He has played sporadically since an ankle injury last month.
Bolstered by Barcoo, San Diego State’s defense continued its strong performance. They also allowed only 18 rushing yards.
The defense ranks among national leaders in several categories. They include: second in rushing defense and passing touchdowns allowed, fourth in rushing yards allowed per carry and seventh in total touchdowns allowed and rushing touchdowns allowed.
San Diego State now has won the first three road games of a season for just the second time in 38 years. The last time was two years ago.
SDSU resumed play after a bye week following their first loss of the season, on Sept. 21 at home against Utah State.
The Aztecs face Wyoming next week at home at 7:30 p.m.
