Recap: San Diego St vs. Army

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The San Diego State Aztecs posted four rushing touchdowns as the team beat the Army Black Knights at their own game with a 42-7 victory in non-conference play at Qualcomm Stadium.

Adam Muema carried the ball 15 times and finished with 98 yards and a score for the Aztecs (1-1), while Walter Kazee accounted for 51 yards and two TDs on seven carries for the hosts. Quarterback Ryan Katz hit 14-of-21 passing for 215 yards and a TD as well.

The Black Knights (0-1) were paced by Raymond Maples who accounted for a game- high 107 yards rushing on 19 attempts, followed by Terry Baggett with an even 100 yards and the only score of the night on one of his 13 carries. Trent Steelman converted 3-of-8 passing for just 50 yards and was picked off twice.

In the first quarter both Kazee and Adam Dingwell reached the end zone for the Aztecs on runs of four and seven yards, respectively, to give the hosts a 14-0 advantage.

With 8:10 remaining in the first half, Kazee and the SDSU offense struck again as the running back streaked down the right sideline en route to a 22-yard TD to make the score 21-0.

An awkward lob pass by Steelman was picked off by Eric Pinkins with 1:22 remaining before the break and brought back to the Army 45, giving the Aztecs plenty of time to go on the attack once again. Unfortunately, the offense sputtered and was forced to attempt a 40-yard field goal which missed to the right with, leaving SDSU with a three-touchdown advantage at the break.

In the third quarter the Aztecs picked up where they left off, mounting another scoring drive that was capped by a one-yard TD surge by Muema to push the lead to 28-0.

On the ensuing possession by Army, Steelman threw into heavy coverage and was intercepted by Josh Gavert who returned the ball to the 33-yard line for the hosts.

On the first play from scrimmage Katz hooked up with Ezell Ruffin for a 25- yard pass to the eight-yard line. Katz then tossed a ball out to the right side to Chad Young who easily slipped into the end zone.

The Black Knights finally got on the board on their next possession thanks to a 10-yard TD run by Baggett, making the score 35-7.

Unfortunately for the visitors, they gave the score right back to San Diego State as Colin Lockett took the ensuing kickoff 96 yards to the end zone to bump the lead back to five touchdowns with just under six minutes to play in the third quarter and that's how the game ended.

Army, the top rushing team in the nation in 2011 with an average of 346.5 ypg, finished the night with a collective 282 yards on the ground. In the meeting between these two squads last season, the Knights rolled up 403 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 77 attempts.
