The Aztecs have a lot to do to get back to the mid-level of the MWC. The upside is that sophomore QB Ryan Lindley is a great player. If the new staff can find a way to make plays and find playmakers, the Aztecs will be more competitive.
Here's a look at the Aztecs' 2009 schedule.

Sept. 5, at UCLA—The Bruins' potential starting QB is former SDSU player Kevin Craft.
Sept. 12, vs. Southern Utah—With the Aztecs 1-1 in their last two against FCS opponents, a win is not a given.
Sept. 19, at Idaho—The Vandals were one of two teams SDSU beat last year. Idaho, a member of the WAC, is really that bad.
Oct. 3, vs. New Mexico State—The Aggies replace their star QB Chase Holbrook, but one can still expect New Mexico State to put up points.
MWC home games, all TBA—New Mexico, TCU, Wyoming, and BYU. Wyoming was the only conference opponent which the Aztecs defeated last year.
MWC road games, all TBA—Air Force, UNLV, Utah and Colorado State.
