The San Diego State Aztecs return to the playing field this week as they head to Fort Collins for the Mountain West Conference opener against defending league-champ Colorado State. State enters the game with an 0-2 record after falling to Arizona State, 38-7, Sept. 8 in Tempe. Colorado State defeated Nevada, 35-18, for its first win of the season, Sept. 8 at home.

San Diego State leads the series with the Rams, 11-9, dating back to the first meeting in 1978. The visitor has won four of the last five meetings between the teams, including the 1999 game in Fort Collins in which San Diego State bested the eventual Mountain West champs, 17-10. The teams have met every year since 1978, with the exception of 1989 and 1990.

San Diego State and Ohio State were scheduled to play Saturday (Sept. 15th) in Columbus in an ESPN game. Due to the national tragedy, that game was cancelled. However, both teams had an open week on Oct. 20th and the game was among the first in the country to be taken off of Saturday's slate and rescheduled. Game time in Columbus is yet to be finalized.
