The athletic program at San Diego State is slowly becoming a successful Division I competitor. The men and women’s basketball are well overlooked and underrated, and the soccer and baseball teams are up and coming. Though football brings the crowd and fans to games, it still has yet to be a strong contender in the Mountain West Conference. Home games can be exciting, especially when we are squaring off against big teams, such as UCLA. Even if the Aztecs don’t win, it is still an enjoyable way to spend an evening, as long as you’re not a sore loser. Despite the fact that San Diego State doesn't bring student fans like teams in the Pac-10 or Big East, the student section here is finally filling up its seats.
A lot of students participate in intramural sports on campus, and they are a good way to keep in shape while having fun. Overall, they tend to get very competitive. Groups of friends usually form teams and participate in sports that they excel in. Club sports are a great option for students who specialize in specific sports offered, and they tend to fill the void left by a somewhat lack of varsity sports.
