Jim Sochor had the ear of San Francisco 49ers coaching legend Bill Walsh. He sent Gary Patterson, Paul Hackett, Chris Petersen, Mike Bellotti and Dan Hawkins — among many others — on to coaching careers in Division I football. In 19 seasons at UC Davis as a head coach, Sochor’s teams won an NCAA-best 18 […]
SACRAMENTO — Aggie fans are glad there will be a men’s basketball rematch between UC Davis and Sacramento State. After Tuesday, there is a score to settle.

Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Year while Southern Utah end James Cowser took top defensive honors, league officials announced Tuesday.

With almost 100 UC Davis athletes serving as hosts, more than two dozen area homeless people were given a little tender, loving care on Sunday.
Traditional Thanksgiving dinner came early for the region’s less fortunate as turkey and all the trimmings were served at Davis Community Church.
Members of UCD’s Athletes in Action and the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee provided the setting, working weeks before to get the word out to transients and less-fortunate families that the holidays were being celebrated once again.
Birthday girl Alyson Doherty blew out the Air Force candles, allowing her UC Davis teammates to each get a piece of the 66-40 victory cake Monday at The Pavilion.

You know those challenging, changeable nine holes out at Wild Wings Golf Club in Woodland? It is one of those surprise packages that area golfers still haven’t completely discovered. At 3,157 yards from the championship tees, this 10-year-old layout is one of the longest nine-hole courses in California. But part of the beauty of Wild Wings […]
SACRAMENTO — The road graders cleared the way. The construction foreman directed the hod, er, ball carriers.

With senior captain and offense tackle Parker Smith helping push aside Green-and-Gold debris, the Aggies posted season-high total […]
SACRAMENTO — Where has this performance been? In front of a crowd of 10,237 on Saturday at Hornet Stadium, UC Davis opened a three-touchdown lead with a dominating first half, survived a late rough patch and knocked out Sacramento State, 35-21, in the 62nd renewal of the Causeway Classic. The victory meant the Aggies avoided […]
There they once sat in the film room … The ol’ football coaches, huddled in a smoke-filled, dark enclosure. A noisy projector clicking and flickering while one poor assistant fought to stop the opponent’s game images at just the right moment — hoping the lens didn’t get too hot, melting that game-changing moment. The film exchange — […]
SACRAMENTO — The Battle for the Basement — more popularly known as the Causeway Classic — apparently has lost none of its luster, despite the fact that UC Davis (1-9) and Sacramento State (2-8) football teams enter Hornet Stadium on Saturday with a total of three wins. There was little mention of the disappointing seasons at […]
While this one never really felt in doubt, visiting Fresno Pacific — despite its Division II stature — provided the UC Davis men’s basketball team with some tests that the locals plan to take forward. Playing before 1,088 fans at The Pavilion, the Aggies ran their record to 2-1 with a convincing 76-46 victory. But […]
Saturday has become The Season for the UC Davis and Sacramento State football teams. When the two foundering squads kick off at 2:30 p.m. at Hornet Stadium, the Causeway “Classic” will determine who dwells in the Big Sky Conference cellar.

After a brilliant season in which Josh Fox came off the bench to help ignite the UC Davis men to a 25-7 record and a Big West Conference basketball championship, the smooth-moving senior has cracked the Aggie starting lineup this winter.
