As of 2016, Sac State students contributed $7,911,933 to the Athletic Department, ...

(Go to StateHornet.com/TheFoodIssue for more food-related stories) Munch Madness is over, and Round Table Pizza takes the crown. How did we get here? In Rounds 1, 2 and 3, I tricked myself into thinking this was a real contest. It seemed like any of the Edible Eight participants could win. Now...
