San Diego State is a member of the Mountain West Conference

The San Diego State Aztecs are the athletic teams that represent San Diego State University (SDSU). San Diego State currently sponsors six men's and thirteen women's sports at the varsity level.

The Aztecs compete in NCAA Division I (FBS for football). Its primary conference is the Mountain West Conference. The women's water polo team participates in the Golden Coast Conference after leaving the Big West Conference in July 2013.[2] The men's soccer team participates as an associate member of the Pac-12 Conference. The women's rowing team is a member of the American Athletic Conference (The American), following moves from the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) to Conference USA (C-USA) in 2013[3] and from C-USA to The American in 2014.[4] San Diego State's football team had intended to move to the Big East Conference beginning in 2013 with the remainder of its current Mountain West sports moving to the Big West, but on January 17 it was reported that all of San Diego State's athletic teams would be readmitted to the Mountain West.[5]

News reports (especially on local radio) often mention "Montezuma Mesa" or "news from the mesa" when discussing San Diego State-related sports events. The San Diego State campus is known as "Montezuma Mesa", as the university is situated on a mesa overlooking Mission Valley and is located at the intersection of Montezuma Road and College Avenue in the city of San Diego.

Sports sponsored

All varsity teams representing San Diego State participate in the Mountain West Conference for conference play excluding lacrosse in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, men's soccer in the Pac-12 Conference, rowing in the American Athletic Conference, and water polo in the Golden Coast Conference.

Aztec basketball alumni who became more famous outside the sport include 1930s player Art Linkletter, who went on to an illustrious entertainment career that spanned more than 70 years, and Tony Gwynn, who also played baseball at San Diego State and opted for that sport professionally, ending up in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

In the 2010-2011 season, the men's team had a record of 32-2 to capture a share of the Mountain West Conference title. They won the conference tournament outright for the automatic berth to the 2011 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.

They earned a 2nd seed in the NCAA Tournament, advancing to the Sweet 16. In the 2013-2014 season, the Aztecs finished 29-4, again reaching the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16 round.


Football

Interior of SDCCU Stadium (San Diego State football game)

San Diego State University's football team is part of the highest level of American collegiate football, the Football Bowl Subdivision of Division I (which was formerly known as Division I-A). SDSU is 9-9 all time in post-season bowl games. They first went to a bowl game in 1948 and first won a major-college bowl game in 1969.[12] Until the 2010 season, the Aztec football team had not won a bowl game in the past 37 years. In 2019, the Aztecs reached their 10th straight bowl game.

The football team plays temporarily at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Prior to that, the team played at SDCCU Stadium and before that in the on-campus Aztec Bowl (now the location of Viejas Arena).

The team is scheduled to move into a newly-constructed stadium, Aztec Stadium, in the current parking lot of SDCCU Stadium in time for the 2022 season.[13]

San Diego State has been a member of six different athletic conferences in its history.

Formerly sponsored sports

In the past, San Diego State has sponsored additional varsity sports programs to those currently sponsored, though they have since been discontinued. Budgeting and Title IX equity challenges have been cited as the primary reason for these programs being cut.[39] In some cases, club teams later emerged in place of discontinued sports programs.

Water Polo

Despite coming off a season in which the team was ranked in the top 10 nationally, the men's water polo team, along with other programs, was cut, due to a combination of a lack in athletic department funding, Proposition 13's passage, and necessity to comply with Title IX.[50]

Wrestling

In 1949, San Diego State wrestler Harold Hensen became the first African-American to compete in an NCAA wrestling championship tournament when he competed in individual competition at the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.[52][53]

Rivals

Fresno State

San Diego State has a longtime rivalry with California State University, Fresno, primarily stemming from the American football rivalry dating back to the 1920s. The two schools have competed against each other in over 55 football, 50 men's basketball, and 190 baseball matches.[62][63][64] The two institutions are popular choices and top-tier schools in the California State University system, and often compete for national attention in athletics from conference play to the postseason across many sports.[65]

San Diego

The Aztecs have a local rivalry with the University of San Diego, emphasizing the competition in college men's basketball. The city of San Diego heavily relies on this rivalry, which features many competitions in a neutral location such as Petco Park across many sports.[66] The two schools, approximately separated by 9 miles, have different cultures yet fiercely compete for city visibility, like San Diego State's chants "LITTLE SISTERS!"', "WE RUN SD!", and "WE RUN CALI!'" after each victory in the college rivalry.[67]
