Cal Poly evened the series at 2-2.
The Mustangs knew they had their hands full trying to beat a scrappy Sacramento State team.
“You let a team hang around and hang around and don’t finish your chances, you know, something silly is bound to happen.”
Junior quarterback Tony Smithrushed for one touchdown and passed for three more scores as No.12 Cal Poly opened its 2009 football season with a non-conference victory over Sacramento State in Alex G. Spanos Stadium.
Quick strikes showcased by a plethora of offensive threats. An undersized defense could hardly catch its breath running on and off the field. Unique schemes on both sides of the ball conjured up by former Cal Poly football head coach Rich Ellerson. That was last year’s storyline.
