By ESPN.com staff
Arizona State and San Diego State have agreed to play a home-and-home series in 2017 and 2018.
The games will be played on Sept. 9, 2017 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe and Sept. 8, 2018 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
"It is a pleasure to announce the renewal of a series that was so positive for both ASU and San Diego State University in the past," ASU athletic director Lisa Love said in a statement. "It is important for us to schedule home/home series with schools that are located in our geographical region. The city of San Diego is a destination that is very popular with our fans. San Diego State is a very nice addition to our future schedules, which already include Notre Dame, LSU, Wisconsin, Colorado, Missouri and Illinois among others."
The Sun Devils hold a 10-0-1 advantage in the series with San Diego State. ASU has won seven straight in the series, which dates back to 1934. The two schools tied, 27-27, in 1951 in San Diego.
This season, San Diego State went 8-4 and will play Navy in the Poinsettia Bowl at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium on December 23.
