Northern Arizona vs San Diego State College Football Preview

Northern Arizona vs San Diego State college football

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks will take on the San Diego State Aztecs at Qualcomm Stadium. The FCS Northern Arizona Lumberjacks had a successful 2013 season with a 9-3 overall record. But they face a tough Aztec team from San Diego State, who will be wanting to march over Northern Arizona. Last year the Aztecs had a successful 7-5 season, winning a bowl bid to the Idaho Potato Bowl, which they won against Buffalo 49-24. San Diego State will want to continue their success this season, and could very well start off winning over Northern Arizona.

Keys for the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks:

  • The Lumberjacks lost their opening game last season against Arizona, so they will be trying to redeem themselves to start this season.
  • Kyren Poe returns under center for the lumberjacks, hopefully he will have a much better year. Last season Poe had 10 interceptions to go with just 6 touchdown passes.
  • Alex Holmes had the second most receptions for the Lumberjacks last yaer with 40. This year he should have more receptions and hopefully he can add to his three touchdowns from last year.

Keys for the San Diego State Aztecs:

  • San Diego state lost their opening game last season to Eastern Illinois 40-19. This year they hope they can find a way to play in the form they played in towards the middle part of their season.
  • Quinn Kaehler returns for QB this season already boasting great numbers such as 3007 yards and 19 touchdowns. Kaehler will need to lead his team if they have any hopes of receiving a bowl bid.


Favorite/Odds: San Diego State by 28.5 points

Another FBS against FCS matchup from week one, San Diego State will be trying to show the nation that they are a competent team capable of winning many games. Northern Arizona will try their hardest, but San Diego State will be well prepared for this FCS team.
