2007 San Diego State Aztecs Football Odds Preview

Receivers Chaz Schilens and Bret Swain have the potential to be solid. The problem is that the defense is awful.

Football odds fans see that the schedule is really not that bad for San Diego State. They have winnable games on the schedule but the question becomes whether they can stop anyone.

The problem is that he has never stayed healthy. Football odds fans think that the best defensive player is junior LB Russell Allen.
