Halftime Update: San Diego State 28, Buffalo 10

The San Diego St. Aztecs lead the Buffalo Bulls at halftime, 28-10.  Honestly, it could be even worse.  Buffalo has managed to force a turnover, blocked a field goal, held SDSU on downs while deep in Buffalo territory, and watched as a long kickoff return for the Aztecs was called back due to a penalty.

Buffalo had actually cut the lead to 14-10 in the middle of the second quarter, but by-and-large, SDSU dominated.  In particular, the Bulls' offense struggled.  They gained only 160 yards of offense in the first half (108 passing, 52 rushing) and gave up 289.  Joe Licata completed just seven of 18 passes and threw an interception (he also had a touchdown pass).  Branden Oliver carried the ball 15 times for just 49 yards, and his longest run was only seven.

It should be noted that 51 of Buffalo's yards came on the final play of the first half, which was a Licata deep pass to Alex Neutz.

Aztecs' quarterback Quinn Kaehler was 10-for-19 with 171 yards and a touchdown passing, while Adam Muema recorded 92 rushing yards and two touchdowns in just 13 carries.  Kaehler also had a rushing score.  Three different receivers had a catch over 25 yards.
