Sacramento State Shocks Stanford, Taylor 30-23 in Saturday Night Thriller

Stanford learned a hard, hard lesson on Saturday night; scheduling the upper crust of the FCS isn’t always a good idea. Sacramento State (3-0) rolled in and handed the Cardinal a tough loss and, what’s more, is that the Hornets did it to their old coach. Troy Taylor, who is credited for elevating Sac State to where they are, fell victim to his own creation in a wild game.

It was Stanford that jumped out to a hot start. Their first drives ended in touchdowns, one from running back Casey Filkins and one a pass from QB Ashton Daniels to Elic Ayomanor.
