The San Diego State Aztecs were all over the California State University, San Jose Spartans in the first half of senior day at Qualcomm Stadium. They lead 21-0 going into halftime.

It was the sophomore running back Donnel Pumphrey show in the first two quarters, as the tailback is off to a huge start to the game with 11 carries, for 154 yards and two touchdowns. All but four of those yards came in just the first quarter.

Pumphrey was not the only one who was reaping the benefits of playing a weak San Jose State defense. Junior Chase Price also got off to a nice start, entering the half with 11 carries, 48 yards and a touchdown.

As a team, the Aztecs racked up 245 yards on offense in the first half, compared to 108 for the Spartans.

San Jose sophomore quarterback Mitch Ravizza left the game in the first quarter after taking a big hit on a running play; senior quarterback Blake Jurich came in to replace him.

The Spartans had a chance to get on the board with 17 seconds left in the half, but freshman kicker Michael Carrizosa missed a 21-yard field.
