The start of the football season is finally here. This is what all of the teams have been working towards all summer and even all year. The start for a new year is exactly what these two teams have been waiting for.
Sacramento St. will make the trip to Idaho to try and take down the Vandals. We will see what the start of the new college football year will bring to these teams.
Sacramento St. Hornets
Sacramento St. had a disappointing season in the Big Sky last year finishing with only two wins and nine losses, and only winning one of their last five games.
The Hornets could have some troubles at the start of the season given that their starting quarterback transferred earlier this year.
Last year’s QB did not work well with Sacramento State. They have realize this and were actually the ones that asked him to transfer.
Given this information we know Sacramento St. is trying to start a new era which could possibly be bigger and better than they’ve seen the last couple of seasons.
The Idaho Vandals on the other hand, finished last year at 9-4 which was third in the Sun Belt conference. They ended up winning their last 5, four of which were by double digits.
While their passing game was not the best last year they have gotten a bigger and better line to move the ball on the ground. They are really hoping to grow their run-game.
One of the struggles that Idaho had last year had was in their secondary.
They allowed over 300 yards passing six times last year and allowed on average over 8 yards per passing play.

I believe that the Vandals will be able to put the ball on the ground if their passing game isn’t good enough especially with their new line.

Even though the Vandals secondary wasn’t the best last year they still competed with much higher ranked teams than Sac. State.
The higher ranked defense of Idaho will result not bode well for Sacramento State. Plus Idaho has the edge in historically in PPG, Yards gained, yards allowed, and they will control time of possession.
