San Jose State adds Ohio State and Sacramento State to future football schedules

Photo credit: sjsuspartans.com

By Ana Kieu

SAN JOSE, Calif. — San Jose State’s busy summer lining up future non-conference football opponents continues with a pair of teams the Spartans will be playing for the second time each in university history.

San Jose State will make a trip to Columbus, Ohio, for a September 9, 2023 game against Ohio State. The Spartans played the Buckeyes, then-ranked #5 nationally, in Ohio Stadium, on Columbus Day (October 12, 2002) losing 50-7.

The San Jose State-Ohio State game will be the 11th in Spartan football history against a Big Ten Conference member. Besides losing at Ohio State, San Jose State has a 1-1 record with Illinois, a 1-3 mark against Minnesota, and a 0-2 goose egg against Wisconsin. Prior to the trip to Columbus, San Jose State has a September 19, 2020 game at Penn State.

According to San Jose State University Athletics Director Marie Tuite, this game with Ohio State fits our three-pronged non-conference football scheduling philosophy for a season.

One game per season against an Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten Conference, Big 12 Conference, Pacific-12 Conference or Southeastern Conference member.”

Two games with at least one of them at home against members belonging to either the American Athletic Conference, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference or the Sun Belt.

One home game against a FCS school.

“This model gives our football program the opportunity to experience the game in some of the largest venues in the country and provides unique travel opportunities for our players, coaches and fans.”

When San Jose State played at Ohio State, the announced attendance of 104,892 remains the largest crowd to see a Spartan football game in person.

The second half of San Jose State’s announcement on future football opponents was more local in nature and matched Tuite’s scheduling philosophy.

San Jose State will open the 2024 season on Aug. 31 at home against nearby Sacramento State, just over a two-hour bus ride to San Jose. The Spartans and Hornets met in the 2013 season opener for both teams. San Jose State emerged with a 24-0 shutout in CEFCU Stadium, the same site as the next meeting between these teams.

In the last 18 months, San Jose State has announced home-and-series with Toledo, UTEP, and Western Michigan and road games at Penn State in 2020 and at the University of Southern California in 2024.

NCAAFB podcast with Michelle Richardson: It was the Pitts for Pitt upended by Clemson; Ohio’s offensive unit does the trick in laying out Northwestern; plus more

photo from Yahoo! Sports: Washington Huskies head coach Chris Peterson hoists the Pac-12 Championship Trophy after defeating the Utah Utes at Levis Stadium in Santa Clara on Friday night.

On the NCAAFB podcast with Michelle:

#1 Clemson (13-0) got a huge win over Pitt (7-6) Saturday 42-10 to their fourth straight ACC title. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence went 12-24 for 118 yards and Pitt’s quarterback Kenny Pickett struggled, throwing 4-14 for for just 14 yards.

#2 The Ohio State Buckeyes (12-1) finished off Northwestern (8-5) 45-24. The Buckeyes dominated, thanks to fine offensive quarterbacking of Dwayne Haskins throwing for 499 yards, was picked off just once and had five passing touchdowns but the amazing thing was he got one touchdown on a shot gun and his offense did the rest of the work.

#3 The Washington Huskies (10-3) hoisted the Pac-12 Championship trophy on Friday night at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara with a 10-3 win over the Utah Utes (9-4). Huskies quarterback Jake Browning threw for 187 yards and a touchdown as that was enough to get past the Utes in defensive game. Plus Michelle’s final thoughts.

NCAAFB podcast with Michelle Richardson: Big Game between Cal-Stanford smoked out; Harvard running back flips bird while scoring; Meyer doesn’t look right on sidelines

Photo credit: @YahooSports

On the NCAAFB podcast with Michelle:

#1 No surprises how the Big Game at Cal was called off on Saturday because the Air Quality Index was over 200 on Friday at 240. Berkeley was blanketed with smoke from the Northern California Paradise Camp Fires. Giving the Bay Area the worst air quality second to Bangladesh that was Friday. On Saturday the air quality actually improved dropping from 240 to 156 still unhealthy but breathing conditions much better. The Big Game has been rescheduled to Sat Dec 1st.

#2 Harvard running back Devin Darrington while running towards the end zone and being pursued by Yale defenders gave the bird to the nearest Yale defender before crossing the end zone. The officials disqualified the touchdown because of unsportsmanship like conduct. Harvard went onto win the game 45-27.

#3 Ohio State coach Urban Meyer’s health condition is in question after he was seen bent over hands on knees, palms pressed against his head. Meyer had surgery in 2014 for a cyst in the brain. Meyer’s doctor Dr. Andrew Thomas said that Meyer suffers from aggressive headaches. Meyer was suspended at the beginning of the season for four games when he was accused of having knowledge of former assistant coach Zach Smith had been abusing his wife and Meyer didn’t take any action to discipline Smith at the time.
