WHAT TO WATCH FOR

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - SPORTS - — Steve Kroner

Army av­er­ages 308 rush­ing yards per game, be­hind only Ge­or­gia Tech (372) and Navy (310.4) in the na­tion. Quar­ter­back Kelvin Hop­kins Jr. is at the con­trols of the Black Knights’ of­fense; he’s their lead­ing rusher with 397 yards and has thrown for 551 yards. Only once this sea­son has he at­tempted more than 10 passes in a game. He went 10-for-21 in Army’s 34-14 loss at Duke in the sea­son opener.

San Jose State’s quar­ter­back sit­u­a­tion has re­turned to murky. Ju­nior Josh Love, who started the past three games, was sacked five times in last Satur­day’s 42-30 loss to Colorado State. He left the game late in the fourth quar­ter with an undis­closed in­jury. Sopho­more Mon­tel Aaron, who re­placed Love against the Rams, has got­ten more reps in prac­tice this week than he has had in re­cent weeks.

This is the first of four col­lege games at Levi’s Sta­dium this sea­son. The Pac-12 cham­pi­onship game is set for Nov. 30. The Red­box Bowl (for­merly the Fos­ter Farms Bowl) will be played Dec. 31, with the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off na­tional cham­pi­onship game a week later, Jan. 7.
