Aztecs Travel to Columbus to Face No. 3/2 Ohio State

The San Diego State football team hits the road for the first time in the 2013 campaign to face No. 3/2 Ohio State in Columbus on Saturday afternoon. The game will air nationally on ABC / ESPN2. The San Diego market can view the game on KGTV (ABC) Channel 10.

Saturday will mark the fourth all-time meeting between the programs, with Ohio State having won all three previous encounters, all of which have been played in Columbus. The aggregate score in the series is 70-31, with previous games played in 2001, 2003 and 2005.

San Diego State enters Saturday's game having recent success on the road. The Aztecs have won three straight, six of their last eight (6-2) and nine of 13 (9-4) on the road.

San Diego State's last four-game road winning streak came during the 1980-81 seasons with victories over UTEP, Colorado State, Oklahoma State and New Mexico.

Ohio State dropped to No. 3 in the AP poll, but remains at No. 2 in the Coaches' poll this week. It will mark the highest opponent SDSU has faced since battling No. 2/2 Ohio State on Sept. 6, 2003. The Aztecs had large statistical advantages in that game (first downs: SDSU 20, OSU 10; total yards: SDSU 216, OSU 196; 3rd down conversions: SDSU 5-for-15, OSU 1-for-14) and led in the fourth quarter before falling,16-13.
