General Notes
• Tonight's attendance of 32,133 was the largest non-SkyShow home crowd since Dec. 3, 2011 vs. Fresno State.
• The Aztecs held Oregon State to 10 yards rushing, which is the eighth-fewest rushing yards allowed in SDSU single-game history.
• The Aztecs scored 24 points in the first half, their most in the first half against an AQ BCS school since scoring 31 at Kansas on Sept. 25, 1999.

• The Aztecs have received the ball first in 18 straight games, the longest streak in the nation.
• SDSU scored a touchdown on its opening drive for the first time since Oct. 13, 2012 vs. Colorado State. San Diego State went eight games in between without scoring a touchdown on its opening possession (the Aztecs did kick a field goal in their first possession vs. Eastern Illinois in the opener, the only time they scored on their first drive since that Colorado State game).
• SDSU has now gone 80 games without suffering a shutout (Nov. 18, 2006 at TCU). That is the only time San Diego State has been shut out in its last 175 games.
• The Aztecs held their opponent scoreless on their opening drive for the first time this season.
• SDSU's 14 points in the first quarter was its most since also scoring 14 vs. Hawai'i on Oct. 6, 2012. San Diego State is now 9-1 in its last 10 games when scoring at least 14 points in the first quarter.
• The Aztecs fell to 9-2 in the Rocky Long era when leading at the half. • SDSU dropped to 15-3 in the Rocky Long era when leading after three quarters.
