The Sac State Hornets beat a Big Sky football opponent in 2012, beating Northern Colorado with a strong defensive effort by a score of 28-17.

Osagie Odiase was a marked man Saturday. He was picked on. Bullied even.

But the Sacramento State junior defensive back didn’t back down. He  made an interception, recovered a fumble, broke up three passes and led the Hornets with a career-high 11 tackles in their home-opening 28-17 victory over Northern Colorado.

“I love it when they throw my way,” Odiase said. “I just have to be resilient out there. But I have to give a lot of credit to my (defensive) line. Their pressure on the quarterback helps me out.”

Sac State scored one touchdown in each quarter to improve to 2-1.Even though Northern Colorado (1-2) is in the Big Sky Conference, the game was deemed to be nonconference. Both teams had an open date, and the Big Sky allowed the teams to fill it.This is the first time Sac State has been 2-1 without beating a Division II team since 2001. The Hornets beat Saint Mary’sand Idaho State that year but finished 2-9.”

November 18th:
The CSUS Hornets lost the 2012 Causeway Classic to the UCD Aggies.  The loss left CSUS 4-4 in the Big Sky Conference and out of the football playoff hunt.  The Hornets started the season hot as can be but in the 2nd half lost too many games especially the conference games.
