Sacramento State edges past Portland State 48-41

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) DeAndre Carter returned a punt 65 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown and Sacramento State edged past Portland State 48-41 on Saturday night.

Garrett Safron threw a touchdown pass to Nnamdi Agude and Brad Cornish kicked a 25-yard field goal as Sacramento State (6-5, 3-4 Big Sky) tied up the score at 41 with 8:05 left to play.

After the Vikings got called on two penalties and threw two incomplete passes, Carter’s 65-yard punt return put the Hornets ahead with 3:17 left to play.

Portland State had one last chance to score, but on fourth-and-8 a holding call pushed the Vikings to fourth-and-18, and the next pass attempt was incomplete.

The game saw six lead changes and four ties.

Carter finished with 134-yards receiving, including a 61-yard touchdown catch, and Safron threw for 290 yards and three touchdowns.

Nate Tago led Portland State (3-8, 2-5) with 76-yards rushing and two touchdowns.
