Arizona, San Diego State Schedule 2021-22 Football Series

By Kevin Kelley -

The Arizona Wildcats and the San Diego State Aztecs have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2021 and 2022.

Arizona will host the first game of the series at Arizona Stadium in Tucson on Sept. 11, 2021. In the second and final game, Arizona will travel to face San Diego State at Qualcomm Stadium on Sept. 3, 2022.

Arizona and San Diego State have met 15 times on the gridiron and the Wildcats lead 10-5. In their last meeting in 2001, Arizona beat San Diego State 23-10 at Qualcomm Stadium.

SDSU is the first announced non-conference game for Arizona for the 2021 season. In 2022, the Wildcats are also scheduled to host Mississippi State in the first game of a recently announced home-and-home series.

Arizona is the first non-conference opponent scheduled for San Diego State for both the 2021 and 2022 seasons.

With the addition of Arizona, San Diego State now has a Pac-12 team on their future football schedule through the 2022 season. The other Pac-12 teams they have line up are Oregon State (2014), California (2015-16), Arizona State (2017-18), and UCLA (2019-20).

How do so many of the other MWC teams get games scheduled on a home & home basis with the likes of UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, California and individual games with USC and Stanford and yet Boise State only schedules games against the PAC12 schools from the northwest?

The Pac 12 likes to schedule regional non conference games against FBS opponents. This benefits teams like Fresno, San Jose and San Diego as they get to play the California schools frequently and Boise ends up playing the northwest schools. I don’t believe it’s anything against Boise just a matter of location.

Recruiting. There are plenty of great HS players in California, and the teams need to stay visible. There are a kit fewer great HS players in Idaho, and they tend to stay home and go to Boise.

Boise St has home-and-homes contracted with Florida St, Michigan St, Oklahoma St and Virginia. That’s some nice scheduling.
