The win streak now sits at four, as the San Diego State Aztecs sneaked away with a 24-19 win last night in San Diego.

The Aztecs pulled away with a 16-yard pass form Ryan Lindley to Brandon Sullivan, putting SDSU up 24-13 with just over eight minutes to play.

The Rams held a three-point lead when LB Mychal Sisson stripped quarterback Ryan Lindley, racing 90 yards for a touchdown.

The story of the night, once again, was Ronnie Hillman and his amazing freshman season.

Hillman added to his already eye-popping ground game, rushing 31 times for 151 yards and a touchdown. Hillman is now eighth in Division I-FBS with 1,056 rushing yards this season.

Favored by over two touchdowns, no one expected the Rams to compete down to the wire, but that's exactly what happened.

Rams QB Pete Thomas threw a screen pass with two minutes remaining to pull within five, but a failed two-point conversion allowed the Aztecs to gain possession and run the clock out.

The supposed Mountain West game of the week was nothing more than a blowout, as TCU crushed Utah, 47-7.

TCU will host San Diego State next Saturday in Texas. I'd expect for TCU to remain at No. 3 after Oregon discarded Washington and Auburn played what was essentially a scrimmage against Chattanooga.

The Aztecs (7-2, 4-1 MWC), who were already bowl eligible, will now hope to break into the top 25, thanks to losses by seven top 25 teams.
