San Diego, California - San Diego State continues its quest for a second consecutive Mountain West football championship and a 21st league title in program history when the Aztecs play host to Hawai’i in a pivotal West Division showdown. The Saturday game serves as the annual Homecoming contest for the SDSU.

  • San Diego State is one of 15 teams nationally with one loss or less (five undefeated teams, 10 one-loss teams).
  • The Aztecs carry a number of lengthy win streaks into Saturday’s game, including: 15 straight victories against conference opponents (longest active streak in the country), 13 straight home wins against league opponents, 12 straight victories in games played in the Pacific Time Zone, nine straight victories at home (tied for the fourth-longest active streak in the nation) and four straight wins overall (tied for 12th-longest active streak nation).
  • During the 15-game win streak vs. MW teams (including the 2015 MW Championship game), SDSU has outscored its opponents, 509-161.
  • At 7-1, San Diego State is off to its best start since 1977, when the Aztecs ended the season 10-1 as an independent. That is the only team in school history that ended the campaign in the Division I national rankings (16 in AP, 19 in UPI).
  • Since Oct. 3, 2015, SDSU owns the nation’s third-best record at 17-1 (.944), trailing only Alabama (19-0, 1.000) and Clemson (19-1, .950), and ahead of Michigan (15-2, .882) and Ohio State (15-2, .882).
  • San Diego State is once again among the nation’s elite in every major defensive category. Since the beginning of the 2015 season, the Aztecs are third in turnovers forced (48), fourth in rushing yards allowed per attempt (3.1), fifth in total offense allowed per game (284.8) and sixth in points allowed per game (16.6).
  • Heisman Trophy candidate Donnel Pumphrey continues to lead all of FBS this season in rushing yards (1,469), rushing yards per game (183.6), all-purpose yards (1,620) and all-purpose yards per game (202.50). He is tied for third in rushing touchdowns (13) and tied for fourth in total TDs (13). He has 343 more rushing yards than the player ranked second in FBS rushing.
  • Pumphrey, a senior from Las Vegas, is the active FBS career leader in rushing yards (5,741), all-purpose yards (6,765), rushing touchdowns (58), total touchdowns scored (63) and 100-yard rushing games (29).
  • Pumphrey has recorded seven straight 100-yard rushing games overall. During that span, he has carried 202 times for 1,371 yards, a 6.79-yard average and 12 rushing touchdowns. In three career games against UH, he has 391 rushing yards, a 6.01 average and five TDs.
  • Pumphrey continues to climb the official NCAA career rushing chart. His 5,741 yards rushing currently places him fifth on that chart. He needs 657 yards to surpass Ron Dayne’s (Wisconsin) career total of 6,397. If SDSU plays six more games (would mean the Aztecs play in a conference championship and bowl game), Pumphrey would have to average 109.5 yards to break the record.
