DeWayne Walker said on Wednesday that wide receiver Todd Lee should be back in the starting lineup since injuring his shoulder last week. Lee missed the UNM game. He leads the team with 13 catches.
Also, left tackle David Norman is expected to return to full health after suffering a sprained knee. Norman hasn't played the last two weekends.
Speaking of the offensive line, the unit has performed fairly well this season. The group is undersized and the Aggies have been a one-dimensional offense for much of the year, leaning primarily on the running game. Still, the line's been able to move the pile.
"The guys have played hard and I'm happy about that," coach Jason Lenzmeier said. "We still have a lot of work in front of us if we want to keep progressing."
More from Lenzmeier: Last week, Lenzmeier faced his former team, the New Mexico Lobos.
This week, he'll face his former boss, as former Lobo head coach Rocky Long is the defensive coordinator for San Diego State.
Lenzmeier, who coached the UNM offensive line and now does the same with the Aggies, used to also play under Long and said there remains connection between him and his former coach.
"He did a lot for me," Lenzmeier said. "He gave me a scholarship, he gave me a job as a division-one offensive line coach, he called (New Mexico State) when there was an opening down here. Sure, it definitely means something."
Lenzmeier said he hasn't spoken with Long since the O-line coach has moved to Las Cruces.
"I'm sure we'll talk before (Saturday's) game," Lenzmeier said.
One thing's for certain. The Aztecs will likely bring a tenacious defense to the field come Saturday. That's just Long's style.
"In my mind, he's a defensive genius," Lenzmeier said. "He's always done a great job. He's always had a top-notch defense and his kids will forever play hard, very hard. He's a great coach."
House vs. Brown: Aztec wide receiver Vincent Brown, a junior, has six consecutive 100-yard receiving performances. Davon House is the Aggies' No. 1 corner. It should be a fun matchup to watch on Saturday.
"It feels good to go against the best," House said. "It tests me. The better man will win."
House, from Palmdale, Calif, said there will be over 40 family members in attendance for Saturday's game in San Diego.
"A lot of House jerseys," the cornerback said.
Kawika Shook: The defensive end shifted over to defensive tackle early in the year. He continues to make the adjustment to a new position.
"I'll play wherever they need me," Shook said. "If it's at end, if it's at tackle, I'll do my job. I'm not the biggest. Coach Jesse (Williams) has been teaching me to use my hands better. For me, it's technique over size."
DeWayne Walker: The coach spoke about his first season as head coach of the Aggies, through four weeks.
"You want to win now, that's the thing," Walker said. "I'm not on some five-year plan where the first three years we're not worried about winning. That's not it at all. There's no cushion. And that's what I'm focused on. Making sure our group is mentally ready to go and that the focus is on winning."
