This is a home game for the San Diego State Aztecs. But it is a homecoming game for the Naval Academy, as one of the largest naval bases in the country is in San Diego. So, it won't be surprising to see this stadium have roughly an equal number of Navy fans, if not more. The military academies create quite the problem when facing teams for the first time, as they all run the triple option. And, Navy perhaps over the last decade, has done it better than any of them. Ricky Dobbs has produced back-to-back 1,000 rushing/1,000 passing seasons for the Academy and will present a lot of problems for the Aztecs. Running dogs fare well in Bowl games as it is, but when it comes to Navy no team has been better. The Naval Academy has gone 70-34-2 ATS as a dog in their last 106 games, and that has been even better in recent years as they are 41-13 ATS in that same role in their last 54. Military schools have gone 22-9 ATS in their last 31 Bowl games, and if you bring them in against a good opponent with a winning percentage of over .600 they are an incredible 17-3 ATS. Navy is also 14-2 ATS vs. Mountain West teams, and have covered their last seven games vs. teams with a winning record. They are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 road games vs. good offensive teams like SDSU (those averaging 425+ yards per game). The Aztecs may be the home team, but it begins and ends there. Navy gets this one.
