SDSU Aztec Bowl – San Diego CA

Description

SERA began constructing the Aztec Bowl in 1933, spending $260,000 on excavating, filling, leveling, and removing rock.

The WPA provided another $216,863 for the labor for filling in the canyon, seating for 10,000 people, as well as a flood lightening system, turfed playing field, a press box, and restrooms on either sides of the stadium.

The stadium was dedicated on October 3, 1936, right before a football game against Occidental College (San Diego State won the game).
