San Diego State University announced on Wednesday it will be opening the 2023 football season against Ohio University on Aug. 26 at Snapdragon Stadium.
It will be the first of three home games to begin the 2023 campaign, according to SDSU.
The Ohio University Bobcats went 10-4 in 2022, advancing to the Mid-American Conference (MAC) title game and winning the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl.
"We're excited to kick off our 2023 campaign out west against a championship-caliber opponent in San Diego State," Ohio football head coach Tim Albin told the campus news staff. "Since facing them in the 2018 DXL Frisco Bowl, I've followed the Aztecs program and I respect the work that Coach Hoke and his staff have done developing a tough, relentless football program like ours."
The Aztecs will play against 12 teams in the 2023 session, including five 10-win teams and eight bowl teams. Following the Aug.23 game with Ohio, the Aztecs are scheduled to welcome Idaho State on Sept.2 and UCLA on Sept.9. before a road outing at Oregon State on Sept. 16 closes out non-conference play, according to SDSU.
The MWC schedule has not been released yet, but SDSU will host Boise State, Fresno State, Nevada, and Utah State, with road games set for Air Force, Colorado State, Hawaii, and San Jose State.
