Football Welcomes Air Force Saturday on Senior Day
Owning the nation's 10th longest active win streak of five games, San Diego State (7-3; 5-1 MW) returns home to face long-time rival Air Force (5-4; 4-1 MW) at Qualcomm Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Aztecs control their own destiny in the quest to earn the school's 19th football conference title, but first since 1998.

Game time is slated for 12:30 p.m. PT and the contest will be televised nationally in high definition by NBC Sports Network with radio coverage on KOGO 95.7 FM & AM 600. Tickets start at just $10, and fans can get two $26 tickets for $28 by purchasing online and entering the promo code Marshall. The game marks the final home contest for 16 seniors, who have helped guide the Aztecs to what would appear to be a third consecutive bowl game.

San Diego State ran its winning streak to five games, its longest single-season winning streak in 17 years, with a 21-19 victory at No. 19/14 Boise State. It marked the first time in school history the Aztecs have defeated a nationally-ranked team on the road (1-31).

SDSU limited the Broncos to 19 points, 276 total yards and 4-for-12 on third-down conversions. The Aztecs forced five three-and-outs on 10 Boise State possessions in the contest. Sophomore running back Adam Muema recorded his second straight 100-yard game, fifth of the season and sixth of his career.

The Aztecs received great performances from special teams, including junior Colin Lockett's 100-yard kickoff return for touchdown, the second of the season and third of his career, and freshman punter Seamus McMorrow averaging 50.3 yards on three punts, two of which were downed inside the 20.

San Diego State will be looking to continue a recent trend of success against service academy teams. Since the beginning of the 2010 campaign, the Aztecs are 5-0 against the academies (2-0 vs. Air Force, 2-0 vs. Army and 1-0 vs. Navy).
