The Rams will wrap up non-conference play by hosting FCS Sacramento State in late September.

Another big FCS test.

XX

Location: Sacramento, California

Conference: Big Sky

Series History: This will be the first meeting between Colorado State and Sacramento State.

2021 Record: 9-3 (8-0 Big Sky)

Head Coach: Troy Taylor (fifth year at Sacramento State, 18-7 overall). The Hornets had often been more of a forgettable FCS program than anything before Taylor’s arrival from Utah, but other than seeing COVID wipe out 2020 the program is in the midst of perhaps its best stretch ever. In his first year, 2019, Taylor’s Hornets clinched a share of the Big Sky title for the first time; two years later, Sacramento State won it outright, doing so for the first time since winning the defunct American West in 1995.
