Why San Diego Has You Covered

Last season, the Aztecs were 12th in overall defense (324.4 yards) and 17th in scoring defense (19.8 points). The San Diego State secondary played a major role in the team’s success, mainly as the Mountain recorded his 17 interceptions in his West and finished tied for fifth place in the country. Senior safety Patrick McMorris earned First-Team All-Conference honors after leading the Aztecs with four picks.

San Diego State’s offense is led by quarterback Braxton Burmeister, who got the starting job after moving from Virginia Tech. Last season, Burmeister threw for 1,960 yards and 14 touchdowns in 12 games with the Hokies and only four interceptions. He hopes to develop a strong connection with wide receiver Jesse Matthews, who led San Diego State in catches.

Why Arizona Has You Covered

The Wildcats have lost 23 of their last 24 games dating back to the 2019 campaign, but hopefully new quarterback Jayden De Lola can help reverse their fortunes. The Hawaiian is ending the season with the Pac-12 Offensive where he was named Freshman Player of the Year after he pitched for 2,798 yards and tallied 23 touchdowns in Washington State. He was also tied for second place with the Cougars with his three rushes recording his score.

Arizona hopes de Lola will form strong connections with recipients, including UTEP transfer’s Jacob Cowing. Jr. had an impressive season last season with the Minors, where he tallied 69 catches for 1,354 yards, ranking him ninth among all Division I players and recording 7 TDs. Cowing has scored 13 points in 141 passes for 2,595 yards and 13 points in his 32 games with UTEP in three campaigns.
