Hornet Excellence

Sacramento State Football 

The tradition and spirit of competition

A strong intercollegiate athletics program not only brings positive recognition at local, regional and national levels.  it enhances the college experience for the entire campus community. 

Sacramento State competes at the Division I level and sponsors about 400 student-athletes. Men compete in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. Women compete in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, rowing, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball.

Hornet pride extends to the accomplishments of our coaches, teams and student-athletes as we continue to build the competitive side of our athletics program with 21 conference championships in the last three years.

Our student-athletes also enjoy tremendous academic success. This past spring, we had seven teams earn a grade point average above a 3.0, and the department equaled or bettered the general student population in overall academic success.
