Fresno State’s quest for a conference title begins Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. when they take on the Nevada Wolfpack at Bulldog Stadium.
The Dogs have a bye week this week (which means they don’t play). It gives them time to rest up and gear up after two big road games against number-one Alabama and Washington.
Back in July, the Bulldogs were picked to finish sixth in the Mountain West “West Division.” The team is looking to do much better than that under new head coach Jeff Tedford.
The Bulldogs kicked off the regular season at home on Sept. 2 with a dominate performance against Incarnate Word. They won 66-0 in front of a crowd of 39,447 people.
Former Fresno State Quarterback Derek Carr was in attendance. The Oakland Raiders Quarterback had his number 4 jersey retired at half-time.
He wasn’t the only star athlete on hand. Former Fresno State Men’s Basketball Player Paul George was there, too. The NBA star recently signed with the Oklahoma Thunder after spending seven seasons with the Indiana Pacers. Derek Carr posted this this video of the two of them on Instagram.
The Red Wave received national attention following the game. The New York Times’s Mike McPhate wrote about Fresno State with the headline “Why College Football is King in the San Joaquin Valley.”
Now it’s up to us to keep packing Bulldog Stadium and supporting our Dogs. The Sept. 30 game is also Ag Fest. There will be a salute to our strong agriculture community. If that sounds familiar, it’s because Ag Fest is also celebrated during basketball season.
