PORTLAND, Ore. -- Jason Smith passed for 256 yards and three touchdowns as Sacramento State rolled to a convincing 31-14 victory over Portland State on Saturday.
Sacramento State (1-3, 1-1 Big Sky) had lost its first three games by a combined 80 points. Portland State (1-4, 0-3) is still looking for its first win over an FCS opponent.
On their first possession, the Hornets put together a 13-play drive before Smith found Brett Willis in the corner of the end zone on a fade route. The 15-yard touchdown gave the Hornets the lead for good.
Portland State followed with a pair of first-half field goals by Zach Brown to cut the deficit to 7-6. But the Hornets responded by scoring the next 24 points.
The first two scores in that string came on passes from Smith to Dylan Lane. The first, a 9-yard toss, gave Sacramento State a 14-6 lead at halftime. Lane then added a 5-yard scoring reception early in the third quarter to put his team ahead 21-6.
The lead was 28-6 after Dailey ran for a 2-yard touchdown with four minutes left in the third. A field goal by Chris Diniz pushed that lead to 31-6 midway through the final period.
Portland State finally broke through again when Nevin Lewis hauled in a 22-yard scoring pass from Hubel with 2:30 left.
