What to Know

San Diego State is 9-1 against the Falcons since February of 2018, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Tuesday. The pair will face off in a Mountain West battle at 10:30 p.m. ET at Clune Arena. Despite being away, San Diego State is looking at a 11-point advantage in the spread.

Last Saturday, the Aztecs earned a 81-67 win over the Aggies.

Among those leading the charge was Jay Pal, who scored 16 points along with seven rebounds and two blocks. He didn't help San Diego State's cause all that much against the Rams on Tuesday but the same can't be said for this matchup. Micah Parrish was another key contributor, scoring 14 points along with two blocks.

Meanwhile, Air Force's recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their third straight loss. They took a serious blow against the Broncos, falling 94-56. The loss unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for Air Force in their matchups with the Broncos: they've now lost seven in a row.

Air Force's loss came about despite a quality game from Jeffrey Mills, who scored 17 points.

The Aztecs' win was their 17th straight at home dating back to last season, which pushed their record up to 17-5. As for the Falcons, they have been struggling recently as they've lost 11 of their last 12 games, which put a noticeable dent in their 8-13 record this season.

Tuesday's matchup is shaping up to be a scrappy matchup: San Diego State have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 37.4 rebounds per game. It's a different story for Air Force, though, as they've been averaging only 30 rebounds per game. Given San Diego State's sizable advantage in that area, the Falcons will need to find a way to close that gap.

San Diego State beat the Falcons 70-60 when the teams last played back in January of 2023. Will San Diego State repeat their success, or do the Falcons have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
