Aztec Football to Play Nevada on ESPN on Oct. 4
April 23, 2013
SAN DIEGO -
San Diego State's home football game against Nevada on Oct. 4 will be broadcast on ESPN, the Mountain West announced today. Kickoff for the Aztecs-Wolf Pack game is scheduled for 6 p.m. PT at Qualcomm Stadium.
It will be SDSU's first regular season game on ESPN since Sept. 18, 2004, when it lost at Michigan, 24-21, and the first regular season home contest on the network since Nov. 27, 1999, when San Diego State defeated Wyoming, 35-7.
The Aztecs last played a regular season game on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 on Oct. 15, 2005 in a 28-19 win over Utah in Salt Lake City on ABC. The Oct. 4 game with Nevada will also be SDSU's first regular season home contest on ABC, ESPN or ESPN 2 since the 2005 opener (Sept. 3) in a 44-21 loss to UCLA on ESPN2.
San Diego State has played on ESPN in each of its three consecutive bowl appearances (2010 Poinsettia Bowl, 2011 New Orleans Bowl and 2012 New Orleans Bowl).
Additional networks, broadcasts and kick times will be announced as they become available.
The Oct. 4 game against the Wolf Pack will be the Mountain West opener for the Aztecs. Last year, SDSU beat Nevada, 39-38, in a thrilling overtime victory on a game-winning 2-point conversion pass from Adam Dingwell to Adam Roberts.
San Diego State returns 17 starters off a 2012 squad that finished 9-4 overall, 7-1 in Mountain West play, claimed the 19th conference championship in school history and advanced to a school-record third consecutive bowl game. The Aztecs ended the campaign by winning their final seven regular season games.
