The 42nd annual KGB SkyShow will follow San Diego State University’s 2017 season-opening game against UC Davis on Saturday, Sept. 2 at Qualcomm Stadium. Kickoff for the back-to-back Mountain West champion Aztecs and Aggies is set for 5:30 p.m.

The KGB SkyShow, the largest fireworks show in the area, annually attracts one of the largest crowds of the season, including last year when 46,486 fans showed up to watch SDSU shut out New Hampshire, 31-0.

Tickets to the KGB SkyShow will be available for Aztec fans and KGB listeners beginning at 9 a.m. on June 12 via an internet presale (view level only). Current SDSU football season-ticket holders, meanwhile, can order additional single-game tickets at all levels beginning at 9 a.m. on July 10 for the game. Single-game tickets at all levels for the general public to the Sept. 2 clash go on sale on July 17.

Additional promotions and game times will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Aztecs are coming off an 11-3 season, knocking off Wyoming, 27-24, in the MW Championship game and Houston, 34-10, in the Las Vegas Bowl, to finish with a No. 25 ranking in both the AP Top 25 poll and the Amway Coaches Poll. It is just the second time that SDSU has been ranked in the final AP poll in program history (also 1977). The 11 wins tied a school single-season record as SDSU became the first team in program history with back-to-back 11-win campaigns.

SDSU is accepting new account deposits on 2017 season tickets through the Aztec Ticket Office, while current season-ticket holders can also renew their tickets for the 2017 campaign. Fans can purchase tickets through GoAztecs.com, over the phone by calling 619-283-7378, or by visiting Qualcomm Stadium's Window E between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT.
