THE DUCKS vs. THE AZTECS: RENEWING AN MPSF RIVALRY

The two teams have played in every season but two since SDSU started its program in 2012 with the only exceptions being 2018 (no game scheduled) and 2020 (game canceled due to COVID-19).

» Oregon was also one of two teams in the conference to have three players with at least nine points (Hilcoff, Stump, Wallace)
 
SUPER SENIOR STUMP
