It was two days later than we originally anticipated, but the 2012 Battle on the Midway, featuring the Syracuse Orange and San Diego State Aztecs, was finally played.
Steve Fisher's Aztecs were looking to top Jim Boeheim's Orange on the USS Midway in San Diego, but the Aztecs went down early thanks to a 17-2run by Syracuse, and they failed to climb back in it.
Windy conditions and glare from the sun made it difficult to play for these teams, but Syracuse fought it out and started the season with a victory over the Aztecs.
Finals Score: Syracuse 62, San Diego State 49
