Utah Tech at Sacramento State Preview

Seventh-ranked Sacramento State opens with Utah Tech in a quest to build off of 2021’s success.

“We’re excited, really excited about the season,” Hornets head coach Troy Taylor said via the Sacrament Bee’s Joe Davidson. “We have good depth, experience and we’re prepared.”

The SCSU Hornets went 9-3 and won a second-straight Big Sky Conference title last year before bowing out to South Dakota State in the

“We’re ready for a big year,” Hornets running back Cameron Skattebo said via Davidson. “We have everything here to do well, and we still have a lot to prove.”

FCS playoffs. Utah Tech, a member of the WAC, went 1-10 last year, and the Trailblazers look to turn things around this year. Utah Tech moved up to the FCS in 2020.

“You have to be ready to level up at some point,” Utah Tech head coach Paul Peterson said via The St. George Spectrum & Daily News’ Sean Ellertson. “Playing a lot of young guys and new guys in the games that we played last year, I mean you’ve got to be better. That’s all part of the process. I’m excited to see us write the story of this season and again play some really good competition. It feels like our team’s made some really good strides and big steps.”

Peterson welcomes the challenge for his team in facing the Hornets again. Sac State prevailed in their previous meeting last year.

“That’s what we wanted,” Peterson said via KSL.com. “We played the teams that are the top notch at the FCS level, and we were close. Some of the games were really close and then they got away from us a little bit. We’ve got the right guys. If we keep developing then we can be there.”

Sac State could use two quarterbacks again Asher O’Hara and Jake Dunniway both returning. Dunniway threw for 2,576 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. O’Hara had 899 yards and seven touchdowns, and he made an impact on the ground with another 663 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Hornets also have Cameron Skattebo back at running back after he posted 520 yards and six touchdowns in 2021.

Utah Tech could go three different directions at quarterback with Boone Abbott, Kobe Tracy, and Victor Gabalis listed as potential starters per Ellertson. Abbott transfered from Hawaii and Gabalis from Washington State. Tracy played for the Trailblazers last season and threw for 1,664 yards and eight touchdowns versus eight interceptions.

“I think it’s fun because you’re trying to get better, and competition always makes you better,” Peterson per Ellertson. “It’s fun to see them improve and they’re really buds. The quarterback room is funny because they’re probably the most competitive people out there but they’re also the smartest and know how to get along and for the most part have to be really good leaders.”
