The Causeway Classic is the annual college football game between the Sacramento State Hornets and the UC Davis Aggies in the United States. The teams exchange a Causeway Classic Trophy made from cement taken from the Yolo Causeway.

History of the gameEdit

The two teams first played each other in 1954 and have played every year since, including twice in 1988 when they met in the NCAA Division II playoffs.[1] Games hosted by UC Davis are held at Aggie Stadium. Games hosted by Sacramento State are held at Hornet Stadium.

The name "Causeway Classic" was introduced in the early 1980s and is credited to former Sacramento State sports information director Mike Duncan.[1] It refers to the Yolo Causeway, a causeway over the Yolo Bypass on Interstate 80, which connects Davis and Sacramento, California.

TrophyEdit

A trophy made from cement from the Yolo Causeway is awarded to the winner.

For a few decades starting in 1961, the winning team received the Causeway Carriage, an authentic 19th century carriage, as the trophy. Today, the Carriage is no longer exchanged between the two teams. The carriage was donated by Sac State alumnus Jeri Striezik in 1960 to serve as the perpetual trophy for the schools. It was refurbished at the prison in Folsom, California. It was transported to the winning campus at the losing school's expense.

FootballEdit

UC Davis leads the series with 39 wins to Sacramento State's 14. UC Davis also leads all-time, 45 to 20. One of Sacramento State's victories was a playoff game between the two schools in 1988.[2]

Other sportsEdit

The two schools also have "Causeway Classic" competitions in baseball, volleyball, and track. There is now an all-sports trophy called "The Causeway Cup". Initiated with UCD's move to Division I, the two schools created a trophy for all sports. Each of the schools' 17 common teams compete for a pre-determined share of either five or 10 points.[2] The school that collects the most points wins the Cup for that season. In the inaugural cup in 2004–05, UCD claimed the trophy, however, Sacramento State won it in 2005–06 with a total score of 66.25–38.75 and again in 2006–2007 with a total score of 52.66–52.34. In 2007–2008, UCD reclaimed the trophy with a total score of 67.5–37.5.[3]
