BYU: A powerful and well-rounded Cougars defense held opponents to the second-fewest rushing yards in the nation, the thirteen-fewest passing yards and the fifth-fewest points. Head coach Bronco Mendenhall was an assistant to San Diego State's Rocky Long at New Mexico from 1998-2002. BYU is making its eighth consecutive bowl appearance and has a chance to get its fourth straight bowl victory against a former conference mate.

San Diego State: The Aztecs' nine wins were the most in the regular season since 1977. The Aztecs' November 3rd win over Boise State was the first road victory over a ranked opponent in school history. San Diego State's current seven-game winning streak is the school's first since 1981. Rocky Long's team looks to make it eight straight for the first time since 1975 against a team that stole a victory on a controversial call in their last meeting in 2010.
