San Diego, California - The San Diego State football team will conduct an intrasquad scrimmage at the Marine Sports Complex Field aboard the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar on Friday, August 10 in Miramar, Calif. The one-hour scrimmage will follow several opportunities where Aztec players and staff will interact with Active Duty Marines and Sailors on the installation.
Beginning at 9 a.m. PT, 14 SDSU seniors will enjoy breakfast with the MCAS Miramar Falcons football team. At 10:30 a.m. PT, the remainder of the team will arrive along with the San Diego State dance team and Aztec Warrior.
At 11 a.m. PT, the team will be greeted by MCAS Miramar’s Commanding Officer and other senior leaders. The team will provide autographs and photos opportunities to the attending military community.
The scrimmage is slated to start at noon PT and will last approximately an hour. The event is open to all patrons with a valid military issued ID card.
The August 10 scrimmage is the fifth practice for the San Diego State veteran players and the eighth for the newcomers.
San Diego State finished 2017 with a 10-3 record, its school-record third consecutive season with at least 10 victories. The Aztecs are one of just seven schools in the nation to win at least 10 games in three straight seasons (also Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin). SDSU is scheduled to return seven starters on offense and seven on defense, along with its kicker and punter.
The Aztecs kick off their season at Stanford on Friday, August 31 at 6 p.m. PT.
