Is SDSU's game vs. Stanford the biggest in program history?

From: “No vacation in San Diego for Stanford

“The Aztecs offense, in contrast to the Cardinal, did all of the bullying this past Saturday in a 30-20 victory over Arizona State. Senior Running Back / Kick Returner Rashaad Penny (5’11” / 220 lbs. / Norwalk, CA) went off against the Sun Devils, to the tune of 353 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns. Somehow more impressive still is the range of his three scores against ASU, as they came on a 99-yard kickoff return, a 95-yard run, and a 33-yard reception. The solid SDSU offensive line play had a lot to do with his success as well. They are big and strong across the board, and the Stanford front seven will have to rebound this weekend if they are to leave San Diego with a winning record.”


From: “From the Vault: Stanford-San Diego State

“This Saturday’s matchup will be the first between the two programs since 1988. These teams enter the game under very different circumstances than when they last played. The Cardinal had an up and down two decades between 1988 and 2007, when Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw brought them back to the top. San Diego State was a football nonentity until Brady Hoke broke through in 2010 and Rocky Long subsequently guided the Aztecs to three conference titles. SDSU enters the game having won the Mountain West in back to back seasons. Stanford leads the all-time series 3-1.”


From: “Stanford vs. San Diego State: Odds, betting lines, and computer predictions

“It is clear to me that the computer formulas are all over the map on SDSU. The range of results on the Aztecs is from 33rd to 59th. That’s a 26-spot difference! That’s enormous when you consider that there are only 130 teams. That’s a ranking volatility of 20%. (In contrast, Stanford sits somewhere between 9th to 13th.) Simply put, some have SDSU nearly twice as low on the rankings than others. So, what do we make of San Diego State?

The Aztecs looked impressive on the road last week when they defeated Arizona State 30-20. SDSU’s head coach Rocky Long is known for having an aggressive defensive play calling style. Long will send the blitz frequently from all parts of the field. This can really confuse opposing quarterbacks.”
