The San Diego State Aztecs have added the San Diego Toreros to their 2015 football schedule, the schools announced today.
San Diego State will host San Diego at Qualcomm Stadium to open the 2015 season on Saturday, Sept. 5. The game will be only the second on the gridiron between the two schools. In their first meeting back in 1961, the Aztecs defeated the Toreros 42-12.
The San Diego Toreros are a member of the Pioneer Football League in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Last season, USD finished 9-3 and fell to Montana 52-14 in their first ever FCS Playoff appearance.
“We are excited to be playing San Diego State in football for our season opener,” said Ky Snyder, USD Vice President for Athletics and Facilities Management. “It’s a great opportunity for our student-athletes to play in Qualcomm Stadium in a unique environment. This is part of a cooperative between us and San Diego State on a number of initiatives that we’ll be releasing over the next couple of months.”
San Diego State was the last remaining FBS school with only 11 games scheduled for 2015 prior to today’s announcement. The Aztecs also visit Cal (Sept. 12) and Penn State (Sept. 26) and host South Alabama (Sept. 19).
In Mountain West Conference play, San Diego State hosts Fresno State, Utah State, Wyoming, and Nevada and travels to Hawaii, San Jose State, Colorado State, and UNLV.
