Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the San Diego State Aztecs and No. 14 Utah Utes. After losing their season opener, the Aztecs fought back with a 38-7 win last week over Idaho State.

The Utes also responded to their Week 1 loss in dominant fashion. With a packed crowd at Rice-Eccles Stadium, Utah defeated Southern Utah, 73-7, shutting the Thunderbirds down in the final three quarters.

San Diego State vs Utah Prediction & Pick

The last time the Aztecs and Utes met was just last season, ending in a 33-31 win for SDSU. Having said that, the outcome was an anomaly in their history as Utah has won 10 of their last 13 matchups. The Utes are also 5-0 straight up against the Aztecs when the former is the only ranked team between the two.

Utah will give San Diego State more of a test than Idaho State did. Plus, the Aztecs have already faced a Pac-12 team in Week 1 — Arizona — and lost by a 38-20 final score.

At the end of the day, the Utes shouldn't break a sweat against the Aztecs, especially after racking up 73 points last week.

Final Score Prediction: Utah: 35 | San Diego State: 24

After both teams did well scoring the ball last week, I could see a back-and-forth shootout unfolding here, resulting in the over.
