AZTEC DEFENSIVE NOTES
The Aztec defense is led by Mountain West preseason defensive player of the year, senior cornerback Leon McFadden. McFadden is on the preseason watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (best
defensive player) and the Jim Thorpe Award (DB). McFadden is looking to become the school's fourth three-time first-team all-league selection, joining Marshall Faulk, Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila and Kirk Morrison.

SDSU has forced a turnover in 13 of its last 14 games, including three or more five times in the last 12 games.

San Diego State has allowed a total of 124 yards rushing in its last two games combined. The Aztec defense has held its opponent to 100 yards or less on the ground in three of the last six games.
