Depending on how things play out over the next couple of weeks, there could be a pair of Rivers flowing through Qualcomm Stadium this year. During a radio interview Wednesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports, San Diego State head coach Rocky Long confirmed that (almost) former LSU quarterback Stephen Rivers, in a roundabout way, has an interest in transferring to his Aztecs football program. “There’s been some inquiries from people who know people who know people about whether we’d be interested,” Long said of Rivers. “We’d be interested.” The 6-7, 223-pound Rivers is the younger brother of San Diego Chargers starting quarterback Philip Rivers, and the opportunity to play in the same city — and the same stadium — appears to appeal to all sides involved. One potential hangup could be a scholarship, or lack thereof, as Long also confirmed there are none currently available, meaning Rivers would have to become a walk-on if he wanted to transfer to the Aztecs.
