Sacramento State vs. Arizona State,

Score: 0 - 55
Point Spread: +37½/-107 Sacramento State
Sacramento State lost 24-0 at San José State team that garnered 34.8 ppg last season on offense in its season opener . The Hornets had two early interceptions and a blocked field goal attempt which directly led to 17 first-half points for SJSU. Sacramento State outgained the Spartans in the second half and dominated time of possession during the game (36:08-23:52) but were unable to score, messing up in close on 4 separate occasions , because of miscues and bad play calling It must be noted, however, that Sacramento State has garnered national attention the last two seasons with victories over Football Bowl Subdivision teams. The Hornets defeated Oregon State, 31-30, in overtime to start the 2011 season. Last year, the team rallied for a 30-28 win at Colorado with the help of a field goal as time expired. This current version of the Hornets is capable of staying within 5+ TDs, despite of being overwhelmingly out gunned on paper by a far superior ASU side. Im betting the underdog Hornets find a way to cover the number vs a Arizona State team.... that despite of what their coach Todd Graham says, may very well be looking ahead to consecutive games against Wisconsin, Stanford, USC and Notre Dame .
