The Sacramento State Hornets and Washington Huskies play Saturday at
The Sacramento State Hornets are fresh off a 41-20 victory over Eastern Oregon. Daniel Kniffin is completing 64.7 percent of his passes for 282 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Kniffin is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for his career. Shane Harrison and Nnamdi Agude have combined for 160 receiving yards while sophomore Isiah Hennie has three receptions. The Sacramento State Hornets ground game is averaging 203 yards per contest, and Jordan Robinson leads the way with 71 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Sacramento State is allowing 20 points and 244 yards per game. Darnell Sankey leads the Hornets with 12 tackles, Joey Banks has a sack and Antonio Hayes has two tackles for loss.
The Washington Huskies are coming off a tough 16-13 loss to Boise State. Jake Browning is completing 57.1 percent of his passes for 150 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception. Browning moved the chains on eight of his 20 completions. Dwayne Washington and Brayden Lenius have combined for 90 receiving yards while sophomore Dante Pettis has two receptions. The Washington Huskies ground game is averaging 29 yards per contest, and Washington leads the way with 14 yards on eight carries. Defensively, Washington is allowing 16 points and 337 yards per game. Azeem Victor leads the Huskies with 14 tackles, Cory Littleton has a sack and Kevin King has an interception.
Washington is still a young team that's going to need time to find a groove and get going. Meanwhile, Sacramento State has some talent on both sides of the ball and has topped 40 points now in four straight games. The Hornets can put points on the board, as they've scored 40 or more points in seven of their last 10 games overall.
I like Sacramento State on the road.
