Fresno State Football walked away with a win this week against New Mexico State taking a heavy lead with the score ending at an impressive 33-10. After their two losses to Hawaii and Mississippi, Fresno State was losing its momentum and the season was starting to look unpromising.
The Bulldogs (4-2, 2-1 Western Athletic Conference) have shown above-average talent and potential but have suffered through injuries and unsteady execution. The Bulldog win was a great way to celebrate Fresno State’s Centennial homecoming with numerous alumni coming from everywhere to attend.
The Bulldogs are tied for fourth in the nation and first in the WAC with 20 sacks. Tackle Logan Harrell and end Chris Carter have led the way, with 7.5 and 7 sacks to rank fourth and fifth, respectively, in the nation and first and second in the WAC. With a finally healthy Robbie Rouse rolling for 150 yards and two scores Saturday against New Mexico State, the Bulldogs' ability to run is on a good side.
The Bulldogs are showing amazing potential but still have the ability to improve in their game day techniques. Every fan is hoping to see some of that improvement in their next game when they are favored to beat the San Jose Spartans. The Bulldogs play at San Jose State (1-5, 0-2) on Oct. 23rd at 8 p.m.
