San Diego State (9-3) versus BYU (7-5) 7 PM ESPN

BYU - DE Ezekial ‘Ziggy’ Ansah (#47, 6-5, 270) Ansah originally came to BYU from Ghana as a track athlete and never played any football at all until 2010. However, he’s an outstanding athlete with a rare combination of size, strength and explosion and blossomed this year into a disruptive edge rusher who had 4 sacks and 12 total tackles for loss this fall playing a combination DE/OLB position.

OLB Kyle Van Noy (#3, 6-2, 235) 11.5 sacks and 7 other tackles for loss this fall.

junior WR Cody Hoffman (#2, 6-3, 210), a physical receiver who had 90 receptions this past season

P Riley Stephenson (#99, 6-0, 195), averaged over 47 yards per this season.

SAN DIEGO STATE - CB Leon McFadden (#2, 5-10, 190) 3 INT's this year, two of which he returned for scores, while he broke up a total of 22 other passes over the past two seasons.

junior TE Gavin Escobar (#88, 6-5, 255) one of the best receiving TEs in the country with 92 catches over the past couple of seasons; he‘s a big guy who is a physical mismatch for most defenders, but also has soft hands and can get into the seam and stretch the field.
