Dickinson is one of five seniors who have never lost to San Diego State at home and the hype is real for this marquee matchup, Extra Mile Arena will be rocking on Sunday.

“I kind of feel like this is an NBA finals game," said Dickinson. "Everyone on campus is wishing us good luck, telling me how they are going to be at the game and they are going to be bringing friends which is awesome."

Tipoff is set for 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, the Aztects defeated the Broncos 83-65 in San Diego back in January.
