Former New Mexico State Aggie quarterback Jeff Fleming is playing well at Sacramento State.
Fleming led the Hornets to a 29-28 overtime win over Pac 12 school Oregon State last weekend. He completed 22-of-35 pass attempts for 257 yards and three touchdowns. He hit Brandyn Reed with a touchdown pass in overtime, then went back to Reed for the game-winning two-point conversion as Sacramento State pulled off the upset.
Fleming played one season at NMSU as the team’s starting quarterback in 2009. The Aggie offense was conservative and predictable that season and Fleming was ineffective. Just about everyone on that offense was with the exception of Seth Smith (1,000-yard rusher).
Fleming transferred from NMSU last year, after the team named Matt Christian the starting QB going into the season.
It is noteworthy that he’s playing better at Sacramento State.
