The Dogs improve to 2-1

The Fresno State Bulldogs were anxious to bounce back against Cal Poly, after coming off their first loss of the season to number twelve ranked Oregon. Fresno State knew they had one slip last week but that was not the case against Cal Poly as they rolled over the Mustangs 63-10. 

The Dogs started off with a quick first two drives and then never looked back, scoring on the next eight drives. Jake Haener kicked off things with a two yard touchdown run late in the first quarter after the Dogs dropped twenty-eight points in the second quarter. Fresno State got a little creative in the second quarter as Jalen Cropper threw his second career-passing touchdown to Josh Kelly for fifty-one yards. The Mustangs just couldn’t find an answer for the Fresno State offense today. Later in the third quarter, Jake Haener would find Zane Pope for a 62-yard yard touchdown.  

Jake Haener was on fire all game as he finished the game with six touchdowns, four passing, two rushing touchdowns and threw for 380 yards. WR Josh Kelly had one of his best games as Bulldog with two touchdowns and 127 receiving yards. 

 

On the other side of the ball, the Bulldog defense came to play as they held Cal Poly to only ten points and fifty-three yards on the ground. The Bulldogs defense also forced two turnovers today as Levelle Bailey came up with his first interception of the season.

Takeaways:

Fresno State’s rushing game was much better today as the Dogs ran for nearly 200 yards and four rushing touchdowns. Ronnie Rivers accounted for sixty-four of those rushing yards and a touchdown. Fresno State also did a much better job taking care of the ball today, having only one turnover that came on special teams. 

 

Fresno State is still undefeated at home, improving to 2-0 at Bulldog Stadium and 2-1 overall. The Dogs nearly pulled off the upset in Eugene last week but will have another shot next weekend when Fresno State heads down south to take on the UCLA Bruins at the Rose Bowl.
