Result: Loss
#156 ASA PLAY ON 8* Oregon State -24.5 over San Diego State, Saturday at 3:30 PM ET - SDSU steps into this game with a 2-1 record but they are not a good team right now. We currently have them power rated barely inside the top 100 and this is their first road game of the season. Their opening win came vs Ohio 20-13 and the Bobcats lost their starting QB early in that game and SDSU still had 9 fewer first downs and they were outgained in the game. Then they squeaked by Idaho State 36-28 as a 34 point favorite. That’s the same Idaho State team that just lost 78-28 vs Utah State last Saturday and has a record of 2-22 SU their last 24 games! Last week they finally faced a formidable opponents and UCLA blasted them on the road 35-10 with the Aztecs allowing over 8.0 YPP while being held to just 3.6 YPP. It could have been worse as UCLA led 28-10 at half but fumbled on 2 of their 5 possessions in the 2nd half including once inside the SDSU 10 yard line. Throw out their game vs a terrible FCS opponent (Idaho State) and San Diego State is averaging just 15 PPG and ranks outside the top 100 in scoring (15 PPG), total offense (284 YPG) and offensive efficiency (4.3 YPP). We don’t think they can keep up with Oregon State in this game. The Beavers have scored 97 points in 2 games and their starting QB Uiagalelei (former Clemson starting QB) has been fantastic completing 73% of his passes with 5 TD’s and 0 picks. That’s to go along with a rushing attack that had put up 466 yards in 2 games behind one of the top offensive lines in the country. The OSU defense is allowing less than 2 YPC and facing a SDSU passing attack that is not good with former safety Mayden playing QB (just over 400 yards passing in 3 games). The Beavs have had to punt only 4 times in 2 games this season and we don’t see them doing much of that today vs a defense that allowed over 8 YPP last week vs a fellow Pac 12 team. We felt the Beavers were underrated coming into this year (we cashed with them in the opening weekend vs San Jose State) and they’ve proven us correct. This one will get ugly.
