    The Dawgs have no bye week? That’s interesting. Not complaining.

  • Buster Hyman

    The Huskies have two bye weeks Sept 12th and Sept 19th it is embarrassing.

    • jafabian

      Utah State is not a bye. They went 7-6, 11-2 and 9-5 the last three years, winning the Mountain West Conference title in 2012 and have been to a bowl game each year. I imagine Sacramento State is on the schedule so the players with familties from the Sacramento area will have reason to come see them play, including Shaq Thompson who hails from Sacramento.

      Either that or a school who was originally supposed to take that date dropped out and Sacramento State was willing to take it.
