ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- San Diego State might have had to come from behind to beat Washington State, 42-24, on Saturday, but this team is no fluke.

The Aztecs are 3-0 for the first time in 20 years.

After watching Michigan coach Brady Hoke's former team dismantle the Pac-12's Cougars, this team is probably the best one the Wolverines will face in the non-conference schedule. The Aztecs have a strong passing game, a stronger running game, and an aggressive, chance-taking defense.
