SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It was a storybook ending for longtime UC Davis head football coach Bob Biggs as he bid farewell.
Biggs walked away with a win in his final game as an Aggie, retiring after 20 years as head coach and nearly 40 years with the university.
As he took his place on the sidelines for the last time, Biggs took in every moment.
The energy from the players and the fans at the Causeway Classic against Sacramento State never waned.
“I am sad; it’s been a legacy here at UC Davis,” said one fan.
Prior to becoming the head coach, Biggs was also the assistant coach. And before that, he played for the Aggies.
“He was quarterback when I was a student here at Davis,” said another fan.
“Oh my God, this is such a sad day. He’s made history at UC Davis. We’re so proud of him,” said Becky Heard, who works at UC Davis.
The send-off began with seniors hugging their coach, and ended with more hugging and cheering as the Aggies won 34-27, with Biggs winning big in his final game.
“It’s hard to put in words,” said Biggs. “It just couldn’t be a better ending. I’m just very, very happy.”
This was the 59th Causeway Classic, Biggs’ third consecutive victory in the rivalry game, and his 144th career win.
