SDSU V. Nevada Game Recap

The Aztecs had a solid outing this week with a 42-23 win against the Nevada Wolfpack.

SDSU got off to a slow start, giving up a field goal and a 48 yard touchdown pass early to go down 10-0. On the next drive however, Rashaad Penny followed up with a 23 yard touchdown run, and then a 70 yard punt return for a touchdown.

The rush defense was solid all game, allowing the Wolfpack a mere 34 yards on 18 carries. While their pass defense had several big holes in the game (giving up several 40+ yard passes throughout the game and allowing 414 yards passing and three touchdowns), they kept it together and tightened up in the second half, allowing only one score.

Christian Chapman also had a solid game, putting up 205 yards on 65 percent completion and a touchdown after three straight games under 100 yards passing.

Rashaad Penny was the man of the hour in this game, setting an SDSU football record with 429 all-purpose yards in addition to adding four touchdowns (two rushing). He also had another 100 yard kick return for a touchdown, which tied an FBS record for longest kick return and tied the record for most kick returns for a touchdown in a career.
