AZTEC OFFENSIVE NOTES
SDSU has four offensive players appearing on preseason watch lists for the top player at their position in the country - junior tight end Gavin Escobar (John Mackey Award Watch List (TE), Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List (lineman)), senior center Alec Johnson (Rimington Trophy Watch List (center)), senior running back Walter Kazee (Doak Walker Award Watch List (RB)) and sophomore wide receiver Colin Lockett (Biletnikoff Award Watch List (WR)).

San Diego State ended the 2011 campaign by scoring 30 or more points in each of its final four games. It is the longest stretch of consecutive 30-point outings since a five-game stretch from Nov. 13, 2010 until Sept. 3, 2011.

The Aztecs have had just three student-athletes start at quarterback since Nov. 18, 2006. During that 65 game stretch, Kevin O'Connell (15 games during the 2006-07 seasons), Drew Westling (1 game; vs. Air Force on Oct. 21, 2006) and Ryan Lindley (49 games during the 2008-09-10-11 seasons). Senior Oregon State-transfer Ryan Katz will become the fourth SDSU player to start at the position in the last 66 games when he takes the opening snap in Seattle.
