November 23, 2015 (San Diego) - Everyone said UNLV would be a tough game.  Even Rocky Long, one of the toughest guys at SDSU, said UNLV would be a tough team to beat.
The Aztecs proved their own coach wrong.  As Union Tribune writer Nick Canepa tweeted Saturday night, "Today, November 21, 2015, San Diego State is a football school again."
Move over, Steve Fisher.  SDSU may not be a basketball school for much longer.
After a 52-14 romp of the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, the college football world witnessed Utah State defeat Nevada 31-27 to allow the Aztecs to clinch the Mountain West's West division title.
The Aztecs are now a perfect 7-0 in conference play and will face the Air Force Falcons in the Mountain West Championship game on December 5.  Air Force earned the opportunity to play in the championship game with a 37-30 win over Boise State and New Mexico's loss to Colorado State 28-21.  
The championship game will be at 4:30 p.m. on ESPN2.  Whether the game is played at Qualcomm or at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colorado will be announced next Sunday, November 29.
