In the 13 years the Aztecs played in the SCIAC (1926–1938), they were conference champions twice (1936 & 1937).

The 1938 San Diego State team was led by head coach Leo B. Calland in his fourth season with the Aztecs. They played home games at Aztec Bowl in San Diego, California, the Aztecs finished the season with five wins, two losses and one tie (5–2–1, 3–1–1 SCIAC). Overall, the team outscored its opponents 82–69 for the season.
