As many fans know this is the last season in the Mountain West Conference for our San Diego State Aztecs. This is article #1 in our series looking back at San Diego State history made during our stint in the Mountain West Conference. San Diego State has been in the Mountain West Conference for 13 years (1999-2012). Yet looking back through history SDSU has never won a Mountain West Conference title in football. This season the San Diego State Aztecs are one game away from winning a Mountain West Conference title. The highest SDSU had ever been ranked in the MWC was a tie for 3rd place in 2002 and a tie for 3rd place in 2010.
