San Diego State Aztecs Football Tickets
San Diego State Aztecs Tickets
A series of mediocre seasons have not dimmed the rich football tradition the San Diego State Aztecs once enjoyed. Before moving to the University Division in 1969, the Aztecs reeled off three consecutive College Division National Championships under legendary coach Don Coryell.
Coryell would go onto revolutionize the NFL with his "Air Coryell" offense that was the precursor to the West Coast Offense. He used this scheme to turn San Diego State into a regional power. Coryell coached from 1961 to 1972 and posted a 104-19-2 record in that span. He led the Aztecs to undefeated seasons in 1966, 1968 and 1969, and they were national champions from 1966 to 1968 on the College Division level.
San Diego State has experienced only pockets of success since Coryell's departure. The Aztecs won their lone WAC title in 1986 and future NFL star Marshall Faulk was the centerpiece of an explosive offense in the early 90s. A 12-year bowl drought was brought to an end in 2010 when Brady Hoke led San Diego State to a 9-4 record and a bowl victory over the Navy.
Qualcomm Stadium Tickets, Home of San Diego State
Qualcomm Stadium is one of just eight stadiums that host an NFL team as well as an NCAA Division I institution, as the San Diego Chargers also play here. The capacity is 70,561 for Aztecs games. The largest SDSU crowd of 59,473 saw Iowa pay a visit to America's Finest City. In that 1986 game, the Aztecs held off the Hawkeyes 39-38 in an epic Holiday Bowl. The stadium has also hosted three Super Bowls in 1988, 1998 and 2003.
San Diego State Aztecs Rivalries
Although the Aztecs have captured 13 conference championships, SDSU lost all seven bowl games played in the past 37 years until the 2010 season. Entering the Poinsettia Bowl with an 8-4 record, the Aztecs easily defeated the Navy Midshipmen 35-14.
Since the inaugural season in 1921, the Aztecs have racked up three fierce adversaries, including the BYU Cougars, the UNLV Rebels and the Fresno State Bulldogs. The 33-year-old rivalry with BYU, which stands at 7-27-1 in BYU's favor, came to an end in 2010 when BYU decided to leave the Mountain West Conference.
