How about them Jackrabbits???!!! Repeating as national (FCS) champions under a first-year head coach and extending their winning streak to 29.

So many SDSU games this year have been anti-climatic. They wear the other team down and pull away in the second half on their way to a blowout. This one was not a blowout, but it was firmly in the Jackrabbits’ control, despite a 7-3 lead at halftime.

Next year will be quite different as graduation will hit the Jacks hard.

I’m still going to watch and cheer.
