Sacramento State Upsets Colorado

Edgar Castaneda is a hero Sunday morning in Sacramento.  Castaneda’s 30 yard field goal at the end of the game gave the Sacramento State Hornets a 30-28 win over Colorado.
"I was relaxed. I was calm," Castaneda said. "I wasn't paying attention to, 'Oh, it's a game-winning field goal.' It's just another kick."

The “just another kick” gave the Hornets a win over a Pac-12 foe for the second year in a row.  Last year Sacramento State defeated Oregon State 29-28 in overtime.

Castaneda wasn't on scholarship, he walk-on the team. After the game Sac. State head coach Marshal Sperbeck rewarded Castaneda with a scholarship. Going 3-3 in field goals including a game winner to defeat a Pac-12 team I would say he has earned it.
