Experience was a factor when San Diego State won the Western Athletic Conference football championship in 1986. But lack of experience could be a factor in 1987 because the Aztecs lose six senior starters on both offense and defense. Hoping to make up for those losses, SDSU is expected to sign at least 18 community college transfers when players begin signing letters of intent today. The Aztecs' most pressing needs are at wide receiver, running back, defensive line and linebacker.
