What: Football game
Who: Sacramento State Hornets at San Diego State Aztecs
When: 6 p.m. Saturday
Where: SDCCU Stadium
TV: There might be a feed in the press box I guess, or on those Circuit City clearance sale TV monitors bolted onto the Plaza Level overhang. Buy a ticket, basically.
Unless shit goes sideways, this game is a welcome chance for a needed tune-up before Arizona State. SDSU will have a somewhat low-pressure environment to work on correcting the things that went wrong in the Stanford game, including such trivial details as pass protection, covering opposing football men or not hesitating your way into a 17-yard sack. I’m guessing the team is feeling cranky after the way the second half of Friday’s game went down, and I believe Rocky Long is a good enough coach to channel that constructively.
