San Diego, California - The San Diego State athletic department has announced the 2014 promotional and giveaway schedule for the SDSU football program’s six home games this fall, as the Aztecs attempt to win their second Mountain West championship in three years and play in a bowl game for a school-record fifth straight season.
Leading the list of promotions is the annual KGB SkyShow, which will be held Homecoming Weekend against non-conference opponent Idaho on Nov. 8 at Qualcomm Stadium. The largest fireworks show in the area, SkyShow annually attracts one of the largest crowds of the season, including last year when 42,978 fans attended the season opener against Eastern Illinois. Game time is set for 3:30 p.m. PT, followed by the KGB SkyShow.
Among the prized giveaways in 2014 is the student t-shirt giveaway for the season-opener against Northern Arizona on Aug. 30, which will include the Welcome Week Student Tailgate and carnival outside of Qualcomm Stadium, and also is proclaimed Youth Football Day. In addition, the Aztecs’ game against MW foe UNLV on Sept. 27 will have a blanket giveaway and has been declared Band Night.
SDSU’s Oct. 18 home matchup against Hawai’i will be Family Weekend and feature a carnival outside of Qualcomm Stadium. Meanwhile, the newest members of the Aztec Hall of Fame class will be honored during the home contest against Air Force on Nov. 21, which will also be Fleet Week.
A family pack of four tickets, four hot dogs, four bags of chips and four sodas will be available for $72 in select areas for all contests except the SkyShow game against Idaho. Furthermore, season tickets are now obtainable for purchase for as low as $66 per seat.
Tickets may be purchased online at GoAztecs.com, at Qualcomm Stadium Window “E” Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by calling (619) 283-7378 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All orders have a $15 handling fee regardless of the point of sale. SkyShow View Level pre-sale tickets for KGB listeners, Aztec season-ticket holders and Aztec Nation subscribers will begin Friday, June 20 at 9 a.m.
San Diego State returns 12 starters and 40 letterwinners from a team that finished 8-5 overall and 6-2 in MW play a year ago, culminating with a victory over Buffalo, 49-24, in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. With its bowl game appearance, SDSU became one of only 29 teams in the nation, and one of just five non-BCS, schools to play in a bowl game in four straight years.
