Week 15 Summaries State Upsets West Virginia! With nothing but pride on the line, the Aztecs took to the snowy field against the #20 ranked West Virginia Mountaineers. Lead by the triple threat of Coley White at QB and two talented tailbacks in Mark Rodgers and Tavon Austin, the West Virginia squad was perhaps looking past the scrappy Aztecs. Bending but not breaking, the Aztec defense played a strong game throughout. Although coach Bear had a few hair pulling moments when tackles were missed at crucial moments, the Aztec linebackers never gave up pursuit of the play. On offense Senior QB Aaron Corp finaly got his shinning moment. Although numerous passes were dropped by the SDSU receivers, Corp never lost faith and distributed the ball evenly and effectively, never turning the football over. Entering the half trailing 17-6, the Aztecs refused to give up. Imposing their will with a running attack lead by Sophmore Adam Henry, the Aztecs managed to score when it counted. A stingier defence and the improved rushing attack lead the Aztecs to a 20-17 lead deep into the 4th quarter. On an impressive drive to try and put the game out of reach, Adam Henry lost a fumble at the West Virginia 30 yd line. The Mountaineers seized the opportunity to then move the ball in bigger chunks on roll-out passes to take a 24-20 lead with 2 minutes to go. Never losing his cool, Aaron Corp lead the Aztecs down the filed using short passing gains and handing the ball to Henry on two occassions. The Aztecs took the lead when Sophmore WR John Adams broke a tackle in the flat and scrambled 24 yds for the major. 27-20 with one minute remaining. Forced into a passing game the Mountaineers could not muster more than one first down. Josh Williams, the Aztecs star defensive end broke through for two sacks on the final drive, giving him an impressive total of four on the game. Williams, a Sophmore, will be a key component to the Aztec gameplan next year. Ultimately the Mountaineer drive stalled and Corp closed the upset with two snaps from the victory formation. "Was a heck of a game wasn't it?!?" Coach Bear Wasyliw could not contain his excitement. Certainly frustrated with the dropped passes and missed tackles, coach Wasyliw was clearly given faith in the manner that his plucky young proteges refused to lie down. The upset of the 20th ranked team certainly gives SDSU reason to look forward to next year. The aztecs will lose more than a dozen seniors and the recruiting program started behind the 8-ball with a midseason switch to coach Wasyliw, the Aztecs will look to plug some gaps and focus on the development of their currentl squad.
