Aztecs hope for happy homecoming

Homecoming Week.

From USC to Texas to Nebraska to Florida State and parts in between, it’s a grand celebration.

At San Diego State … well, it’s Homecoming Week.

Yes, there have been karaoke and dance contests on campus, followed by a pep rally on Friday.

But to say the interest is mild in homecoming at SDSU would be more than a bit of an overstatement.

Quite frankly, hardly anybody cares; including alumni. That’s what happens when your football team hasn’t had a winning season since 1998.

The Aztecs play their homecoming game Saturday against New Mexico.

All odds, including the 8-point betting spread, are against them.

New Mexico has beaten the Aztecs six straight times overall, and five in a row at Qualcomm Stadium.

SDSU has little to boast about offensively other than quarterback Kevin O’Connell, who has been getting beaten up all season … including 12 sacks in the last two weeks.

There’s no way a team from Albuquerque, N.M. should dominate a team from San Diego, especially when in comes to recruiting.

While Albuquerque may not be the city San Diego is, SDSU is nothing compared to the Lobos.

Prediction:

New Mexico 28, SDSU 13

Chuck Long better start winning or he should be on the way out.
