The San Diego State Aztecs football team are a Division I program and a member of the Mountain West Conference. The Aztecs finished last year with a 10-3 record, their third straight season with at least 10 wins. SDSU is one of just seven schools (also Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin) to record at least three straight 10-plus winning seasons. San Diego State has won three straight games against Pac-12 opponents, including a 30-20 win at Arizona State and a 20-17 victory over No. 19/19 Stanford last year. The Aztecs are one of just 17 teams to make a bowl game in eight straight seasons. SDSU has the sixth-best record (32-9) and the sixth-most wins (32) since 2015. The Aztecs are the first team in NCAA FBS history with back-to-back 2,000-yard rushing yard seasons by different players (Donnel Pumphrey in 2016, Rashaad Penny in 2017). SDSU (Pumphrey in 2016 and Penny in 2017) are one of just three schools (also Oklahoma and Stanford) with two different Heisman top-10 finishes in each of the last two seasons.
