After an exhibition at Arizona on August 10, the Aztecs will open the 2022 season on the road when they face Nebraska out of the Big Ten. The Aztecs are 1-1-1 all-time against the Cornhuskers and won the most recent matchup 2-1 in double overtime back on September 8, 2017.

The Aztecs will return to the SDSU SportsDeck for their home-opener on August 18 when they play host to Idaho. The match will be the first time the two programs have faced each other. The Aztecs will then travel up the I-5 during the last week of August when they face Long Beach State on August 25 and Pepperdine on August 28.
