The 8th Annual Poinsettia Bowl

The 8th Annual Poinsettia Bowl

SDSU vs. BYU – Thursday, December 20, 2012 at Qualcomm Stadium

The Aztecs (9-3) and Cougars (7-5) are set to square off in the 8th Annual San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl this Thursday, December 20th at Qualcomm Stadium.  This is the second time that San Diego State has been invited to the Poinsettia Bowl since beating Navy 35-14 in 2010.  This year’s matchup promises to be an exciting one, with the Aztecs boasting one of the Nation’s best ground attacks, against the Cougar’s shutdown defense.  The game gets even saucier when you consider the contempt the teams have for one another. It is a rivalry that dates back to November 24, 1979, and a game that was said to have nearly “killed the Aztecs’ football program.” In it, the Cougars gave the Aztecs a sound, 63-14 beating on national television, and effectively ruined the Aztecs’ hope for a bowl appearance.  Overall, BYU has dominated the rivalry with a 27-7-1 record all-time.

Tickets for the 8th Annual Poinsettia Bowl range from $50-$75 and can be purchased here.

San Diego Trolley information for the game, including schedule and pricing can be found here.

SDSU Aztecs Finish Season Co-Champs

SDSU Aztecs Viejas Arena Basketball Court

SDSU Aztec Men's Basketball Team finish regular season as Co-Champions of the Mountain West Conference.

San Diego State Men’s Basketball Team Finishes 29-2

Tournament Play Begins March 10th vs. University of Utah

Our SDSU Aztecs Men’s Basketball team finished their regular season as Co-Champions of the Mountain West Conference. This is only the 2nd time in 33 years that the Aztecs have claimed a regular season championship. After the last game, a 66-48 victory over Colorado State, Coach Fisher cut down the nets from the goal posts of the sold out Viejas Arena.  Coach Steve Fisher earned the Mountain West Conference Co-Coach of the Year, an honor he shares with BYU’s coach Dave Rose. In addition, DJ Gay and Kawhi Leonard were voted to the first team. 

In an interview, Coach Fisher stated that, although he and his team were honored by the awards, he would trade them in for two more wins. SDSU finished the regular season with a record of 29-2. Fisher’s team led the league in field goal defense, three-point percentage defense, scoring defense, rebounding offense, blocked shots, offensive rebounds, and in offensive rebound percentage. Truly a great accomplishment! 

It has definitely been an exciting season; a season that has made the 8th largest city in the USA, a little smaller. It brought America’s Finest City together in unity, and conversation. The Viejas arena was sold out early in the season. Students camped out in horrific weather for days in order to snag the general admission tickets available to them; and then, after receiving their tickets…went over to the next line to secure the best possible seats. 

The biggest fans of SDSU basketball, known as ‘The Show’ have really enhanced Aztecs Basketball over the past few seasons. “They are sensational,” stated Coach Fisher. “They’ve created an atmosphere that makes it fun for others to watch, wondering what they’re going to do tonight, wondering what chant they’re going to have; what somebody’s going to look like; what big head they’re going to throw up. They’re more than a sixth man. That group has created a home-court advantage for us. They are invaluable to us.” 

The Show is definitely “All American 1st team” in my book. What an incredible display of creativity and support for their team. 

Take a look for yourself! 

SDSU Aztecs will play their first game of the MWC Tournament against The University of Utah, on March 10th. Game time is set for 6:00PT and will be televised on The Mtn. (San Diego Cox Cable 320, Direct TV 616, and simulcast on Channel 4 San Diego (Cox Cable)
