Locals know what an extended pinky means in East Sacramento- “Stingers Up!” Sacramento State’s Sac Hornets include 21 intercollegiate sports and over 71 Big Sky Conference Championships.
One of the most recent Big Sky Conference Championships was won by the 2019 Football team. Since there has not been a season since, due to Covid-19, they are still the reigning champions. While it is a great title to have, it is not going to be a walk in the park to have back-to-back championships. The season is well underway with a home game on October 9th against Southern Utah and Northern Arizona.
Saturday nights all around the campus, the school spirit can be heard and seen as students, alumni, and fans get ready for Sac State Football. Tailgating is a very popular event that increases comrotary and friendships throughout the Sacramento community.
