The UC Davis football team almost has it all.
It has arguably the top wide receiver corps in the Football Championship Subdivision. It has an All-American who head coach Bob Biggs calls the greatest defensive tackle to ever wear an Aggies jersey. It has another All-American at guard anchoring its interior offensive line. It has a young quarterback who someday could go down as a legend. It has a blend of veterans and newcomers contributing on both sides of the ball.... Read More →

The UC Davis men's soccer team has spent the past couple of years trying to make its mark on the Division I scene.
After a 12-5-3 showing last season, a second-place finish in the Big West, an NCAA Tournament appearance and a 6-1 start to the 2008 campaign, it is no longer a matter of whether the Aggies belong in Division I, but a question of whether they belong among the nation's elite.... Read More →

080911_sp_wvball.CHeadline: Aggies sweep Air Force InvitationalLayercake: Women’s volleyball riding six-match winning streakBy ADAM LOBERSTEINAggie Sports Editor The Jamie Holmes era is off with a bang. Following a 4-0 showing at the Air Force Invitational last weekend, the UC Davis women’s volleyball team is riding a six-match winning streak – its longest since 1999. The Aggies (6-1, 0-0) were 4-24 a season ago. “I think the team improved a lot in terms of tone,” Holmes said. “It felt like things were a lot more relaxed and in system. There weren’t a lot of chaotic feelings on our side. “I’m always challenging the team to slow things down. Slow it down in your mind. Don’t react to the ball, but anticipate what will happen and beat the ball to where it’s going. I thought we did a much better job at having a calm presence on our side.” That calm became evident in UC Davis’ fourth match against host Air Force. After besting North Carolina State, 3-1, Montana State, 3-1, and Akron,... ...Read More →
