San Diego State vs Ohio live
Not only is this Ohio’s first-ever meeting with San Diego State, but also its first-ever bowl game against a Mountain West team. While other bowl games like Florida-Michigan bring familiarity, this is the exact opposite. There’s almost no familiarity, and that can lead to all kinds of possibilities. Storylines
Ohio: Styles make fights, and on paper, it looks like we’ve got strength on strength between Ohio’s running game and San Diego State’s run defense.

One thing we know is that San Diego State will be ready to stop the run, and that strength is good enough in this matchup to give placekicker John Baron II a shot at a record-setting fourth game-winning field goal on the year (currently T-1st for most in FBS overtime era)

Injuries plagued the entire team, particularly at the running back position where the Aztecs have been so solid over the last three or four years. Still, San Diego State got here with its patented defense, and it will be more than ready for the challenge presented by Ohio. This is going to be one of the most physical games we might see all postseason, but I think each team’s reputation for physicality might have this total a little low. San Diego State’s offense has its best game of the year in a higher-
