San Diego State has a big opportunity tonight when the Aztecs host No. 2 Kansas, Cincinnati's matchup with Iowa State is a great contrast in styles plus more news and notes from CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein.
It's one thing to coach Army or Navy in the Patriot League. It's quite another to coach Air Force in the Mountain West Conference, where UNLV is signing lottery picks and the Falcons are mostly limited to trying to enroll low-major prospects with no medical red flags.
Last season, San Diego State had to share the Mountain West Conference regular season title with Boise State. This season, look for the Aztecs to narrowly hold off the upstart Broncos and a challenge from UNLV to capture the MWC championship.
