San Diego State (4-1) vs. Fresno State (1-5) Game Preview
Date: Friday, Oct. 14
Game Time: 10:00 pm
Venue: Bulldog Stadium, Fresno, CA
Network: CBS Sports Network
It’s condition critical time for the Fresno State season and the Tim DeRuyter era.
The Bulldogs haven’t had a whole bunch of fun in a disastrous start with heartbreak at times, ineptitude in others, and not nearly enough production for a program that should be hitting its stride about now under DeRuyter.
What better time to pull off a massive win at home over the defending Mountain West champion?
San Diego State bounced back from the puzzling loss to South Alabama with an easy and workmanlike win over UNLV. The defense has been a relative disappointment compared to the high expectations coming off of last year, but it’s been good enough against the mediocre offenses. Fortunately for the Aztecs, Fresno State has a less than mediocre offense.
The Bulldogs have been able to hang around in games, and the passing attack can crank up the yards, but they weren’t able to hang on to a lead against Tulsa the last time they were at home, and they couldn’t get over the hump against Nevada last week.
This week, it’ll be all about the Donnel Pumphrey show for SDSU against the nation’s third-worst run D.
Pumphrey leads the nation in rushing yards per game by a mile, coming up with 891 yards and nine scores averaging seven yards per carry over the first five games. He hasn’t destroyed FSU over the last three years, but he will this week as the Aztecs roll.
