UTSA (12-1, 7-1 Conference USA)
UTSA capped off the best regular season in team history with a Conference USA Championship victory on Friday night over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. The Roadrunners held a 42-13 lead midway through the third quarter and held on to win 49-41. UTSA was one of the last teams to suffer a loss this year, and Jeff Traylor was rewarded with a new contract to remain the team’s head coach.
San Diego State (11-2, 7-2 MWC)
It was a terrific season for the Aztecs, who played all their home games 100 miles up I-5 in Carson, CA while their new stadium is being built. Brady Hoke’s team plays outstanding defense and runs the ball in an old-school fashion that wears down opponents. With Greg Bell the latest in a series of signature backs for SDSU, the wrinkle this year is Matt Araiza, the best punter in college football this season and a forthcoming NFL draft pick. A bad loss to Utah State in the MWC Championship however had them fall one game short of their goal.
