The San Diego State Aztecs led by freshman Ronnie Hillman scoring four touchdowns and tied for a career best 228 yards rushing on 28 carries to its first bowl win since 1969, 35-14 over Navy in Poinsettia Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.

Hillman, the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year, scored on runs of 22,37 and 2 yards, and also had a 15-yard scoring pass from Ryan Lindley.

Hillman broke the Poinsettia Bowl record of 129 yards rushing by Navy’s Adam Ballard in 2005.

Navy and Penn State will be renewing their football rivalry in 2012.

The schools announced on Wednesday that they will be meeting at Beaver Stadium on September 15, 2012, in their first game since 1974. To be able to schedule the Navy game, Penn State’s previously announced home game with Temple on the same date, has been moved to September 22, 2012.

Navy was victorious in that game when head coach George Welsh, a former Penn State assistant, led the Midshipmen to a 7-6 upset over the number 8 Nittany Lions in State College.

The Nittany Lions lead the series 18-17-2. The series began in 1894 with a 6-6 tie in Annapolis, Maryland which is a Baltimore suburb.

M & T Bank Stadium, in Baltimore,  Maryland, will be hosting  a football contest between Ohio State and the U.S. Naval Academy during Labor Day weekend 2014 to open the season for both schools.

The game, a home contest for the Midshipmen from nearby Annapolis, is the latest in a series of moves by the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens to bring high-profile sporting events to the 71,000-seat stadium. “It is widely known across college football that Buckeye fans have a history of traveling in big numbers, with as many as 30,000 heading to road games, and Baltimore being 5 1/2 hours or 400 miles is not far from Columbus”, says Mark Burdett, Baltimore Ravens vice president. He continues, “Ohio State is quintessential college football. We see this as an interesting and very exciting opportunity. With the game being played on a long holiday weekend, it will give visitors more time to spend time and money in Baltimore”.

The Naval Academy played in Columbus in September 2009 to open Ohio State’s season and almost beat the Buckeyes.

M & T Bank Stadium (Ravens)

Chet Gladchuk, Navy’s athletic director, said the academy has never played at M & T Bank Stadium without drawing a sellout crowd. The team has played a handful of games there against Army, Maryland and Notre Dame. A home game with Ohio State was ideal for a larger park because Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium is 37,000.

Says Gladchuk, ” We don’t even think about going up the street to Baltimore if we can’t sell the game out. M & T Bank Stadium will host the Army-Navy game in December 2014. And there’s no question in my mind this won’t be different.”

Gladchuk also said that 100,000-seat FedEx Field in Landover, Md., home of the Washington Redskins, was a contender for the game.
