    Logistics. SDSU made the decision, with the City, to tear down the old Qualcomm Stadium kind of in haste thanks to Covid. The plan was for SDSU to play the 2020 and 2021 seasons at the Q while their new stadium was being built nextdoor. The Padres did not have the time, or really the desirability, to accommodate the Aztecs and make the necessary changes to Petco Park to host football in time for the 2020 season. While the Padres are more than happy to get the additional revenue from a football game played in the baseball offseason, I don't think they have the desirability to let a non-Power 5 football team tear up the baseball diamond in the final month of the baseball season.


    • Bowl game was cancelled due to COVID. Field was setup:

      Looks like they removed the seats along the 1B side. Honestly looks like a good fit. Shame it wasn't utilized.
