San Diego State’s claim to fame athletics wise is Stephen Strasberg, Kawhi Leonard, Marshal Faulk, and Tony Gwynn’s college of choice. After having a successful basketball season, the Aztecs are looking to make a much needed statement on the football field.
SDSU will sport a one-of-a-kind helmet design to go along with a new home-and-away uniform set both of which feature the Aztec Calendar. The jersey included the Aztec calendar, used by the Aztecs and is a piece of Mexican history dating back to the 1400s.
SDSU will take the field in the new kit on Saturday, Sept. 5, in the season opener vs. USD. The home game at Qualcomm Stadium is set for 5 p.m. PT and will air on the Mountain West Network/Campus Insiders.
San Diego State’s helmet will feature a black stipe down the middle, which is a color not seen on an SDSU helmet since 2004, and a red Aztec Calendar on each side. Manufactured by Hydrographics, Inc., in Newburg, Oregon, the helmet will also have SDSU’s primary logo on the backside.
SDSU will wear its new black uniform at home games and go with a white jersey when on the road. On the center collar will be an embroidered primary San Diego State logo and the uniform sleeve panels will have the red Aztec Calendar with San Diego State emblazoned on the chest.
This season’s pants are black with a three-inch striped panel on both sides. Inside of each panel will be the red Aztec Calendar. San Diego State will wear black pants with both the white and black versions of the uniform top.
