San Diego State plays the first game of their 2021 season this Saturday at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson. It's a 7:30pm kickoff as the Aztecs host New Mexico State.

San Diego State is a 31 point favorite over the Aggies, who lost their season opener to University of Texas El Paso (UTEP) 30-3 on August 28th.

For the second straight season, the Aztecs will play home games for the entire season in Carson, while the new Aztec Stadium is being built in Mission Valley. San Diego State will open the new stadium in the fall of 2022. Tickets for all home games are available through the San Diego State ticket office

San Diego State is coming off a 4-4 record and missed playing in a bowl game for the first time in 10 years. The Aztecs are hoping for a bounce back season under head coach Brady Hoke, back for his 2nd season in his 2nd go-around as head coach, and new starting quarterback Jordan Brookshire.

After New Mexico State, the schedule gets much tougher, as San Diego State plays back to back games against Pac-12 opponents, September 11th at Arizona and September 18th when they host Utah. After a final non-conference game against Towson, the Aztecs play 8 straight Mountain West Conference games to close the regular season.
