What to Watch For:

  • Bulldogs: Fresno State has been on of the most talented teams in the Mountain West this season. They are balanced on both sides of the ball, and have been able to score in bunches, although FSU is prone to some bouts with turnovers. However, head coach Kaleb DeBoer is gone, and the offense is a bit up in the air with star quarterback Jake Haener having already entered the transfer portal and offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb departing as well. True freshman Jaylen Henderson is starting at QB, which will be a nice glimpse of the future. But with the unknown factor weighing heavily, it would not be surprising to see the Bulldogs attempt to go run-heavy. Their defense should be able to neutralize the Miners’ rushing attack.
