I've also often seen references to the entire U. of Minn. flagship complex as the "Twin Cities" campus(es), so St. Paul seems to be included.

With all of these, I guess it depends on how the OP defines "large." Brubaker, where are you?

Sacramento's only big university is California State University Sacramento. The rest of the schools actually within Sacramento are mainly satellite campuses of universities like USC, Drexel, USF, etc... UC Davis School of Management and UC Davis School of Medicine are located in downtown.

Large and high ranking UC Davis is located in the town of Davis about 16 miles from downtown Sacramento, but is not in Sacramento itself.

Tallahassee is the capital city with the largest proportion of its population at the main university. Florida State University students make up 27% of the population of Tallahassee. If you add in the students at Florida A&M, the number rises to 35% of the city's inhabitants. And 40% if you include 7,000 students at Tallahassee Community College.

Next are Columbia SC, 23%, Madison WI, 20%, Boise ID, 11% and Lincoln NE 10%.

Sacramento

The only major university using the city's name is Sacramento State, which is located in the city proper. Sacramento's unofficial UC campus is 20 miles west in Davis.

I suppose there can only be so many.
50 to be exact.
The University of Denver is about 5000 students. Denver also has the University of Colorado at Denver (~9000 students, about half of those part time); Metropolital State College of Denver (~12,000 full time, 8500 part time); Regis University (2200 f.t., 3700 pt).

No, they don't make the cut. They aren't large universities...

Alabama State University - 5,000 students
Kentucky State University - 2,300 students
Delaware State University - 3,300 students
Lincoln University - 3,000 students
Jackson State University - 8,000 students
University of Hartford - 1,600 students
Rider University - 6,000 students

Which one of these is a large university?

Correction, U. of Hartford is in West Hartford, not Hartford and they have a little over 5600 undergrad students. Here's a good place to check:http://nces.ed.gov/globallocator/
