San Diego State is coming off a 10-3 season capped off by a 48-11 victory over Central Michigan in its bowl game. Brady Hoke was promoted from defensive line coach to the team’s head coach for a team that will look to improve on its offense from last year that ranked No. 112 in scoring. Carson Baker won the starting quarterback job over Georgia Tech transfer Lucas Johnson.

UNLV is coming off a 4-8 record in 2019, and the Rebels will also be operating with a new head coach this season in Marcus Arroyo. UNLV has a solid group of receivers led by Randal Grimes, who caught 44 passes for 696 yards and seven touchdowns last season. Charles Williams had a fantastic season running the ball in 2019 with 1,257 yards and 11 touchdowns.
