Fresno State adds Abilene Christian to 2015 non-conference schedule

Fresno State adds their third non-conference game to the 2015 season by adding FCS foe Abilene Christian.

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

The Fresno St. Bulldogs added their third non-conference opponent for the 2015 season when they added Abilene Christian to their slate. Not a high profile game out of any means since they are a FCS school, but it is a guaranteed win, and it provides a warm up to their fairly tough other non-conference games against Ole Miss and then Utah in consecutive weeks.

Abilene Christian is actually in the process of moving up from the Lone Star Conference at the Division II level, and will be moving to the Southland Conference later this summer. At the Division II level Abilene Christian was a good team which won their conference in 2008 and 2010. The move to Division II to the FCS level is a big jump and playing an above average FBS will be tough after just two recruiting classes of landing FCS talent.

This game will be played in Fresno State (of course) and take place on Sept. 5, 2015, plus it should be a game that they should easily win.

The Bulldogs 2015 non-conference schedule is set with three of their four games:

09/05 - Abilene Christian
09/12 - at Ole Miss
09/19 - Utah
