    Randall McDuffie DT Balanced San Diego CA :4stars: 202 6-3 260 5.18 D- 474 585


    Week 6:
    Randall McDuffie: Before the game against New Mexico State, the Bulldogs received their first commitment of 2010, defensive tackle Randall McDuffie. McDuffie was scheduled to have a visit that week, as were several other recruits, but he committed before the visit. McDuffie, ranked #202 overall, is a very balanced DT and will provide even more talent to an already-solid position on the Fresno State defense.

    2010 Season Preview
    Coming in to the 2010 season, the Bulldogs look to continue their 7-game winning streak as long as they can. EA Sports has them ranked second in the WAC and 48th overall. Coach Max believes that they have the potential to exceed expectations and possibly put up a fight for the WAC title. Despite losing key starters on offense and a very young defense, the Bulldogs still have a solid team. The Bulldogs' starting quarterback Ryan Colburn should have a much better year than 2009. He has two good wide receivers to throw to, the speedy Devon Wylie and the much-improved Matt Lindsey, as a well as a more experienced tight end in David Gory. Gory quietly led the Bulldogs in receptions last year as a freshman. Fresno State still has a lot to prove to everyone, though. They'll get their first chance to do that in week one, when they head south to play the UCLA Bruins.

    Preseason All-WAC
    1st Team
    Ryan Matthews - HB - SR
    David Gory - TE - SO(RS)
    Marcel Jensen - LE - JR
    Cornell Banks - DT - SR(RS)
    2nd Team
    Nick Bates - ROLB - SR
    Kevin Goessling - K - JR(RS)

    Who to Watch For
    Ryan Matthews
    Senior Ryan Matthews will be the Bulldogs' primary running back for 2010. He was selected to the Preseason All-WAC 1st team, and rightfully so: in 2009, he rushed for 1246 yards and 13 touchdowns as the second running back. He will not be splitting a ton of time with the other backs (A.J. Ellis and Robbie Rouse), so they will be relying on him to be consistent force in the running game.

    Devon Wylie
    Look for senior receiver Devon Wylie to be Colburn's favorite target in 2010. The offensive team captain makes up for his height (5'9") with his good speed and is the fastest player on the team. Wylie finished off the season strong last year - in the final game, he led the team in receptions and caught the only touchdown pass.

    The Linebackers
    Seniors Ben Jacobs and Nick Bates and junior Damian Whittington make up the talented linebacking corps for the Bulldogs. In the middle of a young secondary and a decent defensive line, these three players will be the key to the defense. They should be regarded as one of the best in the WAC for two reasons. First, they are experienced. Each started for the Bulldogs last year and know what to do in every situation. The only differences is that Whittington and Bates have switched sides for 2010. Second, they have talent. 2010 defensive captain Ben Jacobs patrolled the middle of the field last year on his way to a team-leading 113 tackles. Nick Bates was the turnover man for the Bulldogs last year, leading the team in both interceptions and forced fumbles. These three linebackers will definitely cause trouble for the opposing offenses in 2010.

    Week 1 - Fresno State @ UCLA
    Bulldogs start off strong, crush Bruins 40-12


    In the season opener, the Fresno State Bulldogs traveled to southern California to play the UCLA Bruins. What was thought would be a tough first game for the Bulldogs turned out to be a blowout. Fresno State got off slow, scoring only one touchdown in the first half, but thanks to three field goals by Goessling, a good defense, and two missed field goals and one missed extra point by the UCLA kicker, the Bulldogs were leading the Bruins by 10 at halftime.

    In the third, Coach Max decided to let the passing game take over, and he saw QB Ryan Colburn dominate the Bruins' defense. In the third quarter alone, Colburn threw for over 200 yards and two touchdowns, and Fresno State scored 24 points and held the Bruins to zero. They took it easy in the fourth, playing very conservatively, and the Bulldogs won the game 40-12.

    Ryan Colburn buys time and finds Matt Lindsey, who turns the play into a touchdown

    Besides it being the Bulldogs' first win, there were many other firsts in this game. It was the first time Colburn threw for over 320 yards. Sophomore receiver Matt Lindsey, and true freshmen recevier Kevin Parker, Steven Kimbrough, and Bryon Hudson each caught their first passes (Parker's first catch went for 55 yards). Lindsey also caught his first touchdown pass as well. A great pass rush all game led to rue freshman defensive tackle Derek Ratliff's first two sacks, Marcel Jensen's four sacks (career high), and a team total of 9 sacks.

    The Bulldogs had a ton of sacks against UCLA

    Player of the game was senior running back Ryan Matthews, who ran for 176 yards and a touchdown, and even caught a touchdown pass in the game. Left end Marcel Jensen had a terrific day as well, compiling 6 tackles, 5 tackles-for-loss, and 4 sacks. His outstanding perfomance earned him WAC Defensive Player of the Week.

    Week 2 - Houston @ Fresno State
    Keenum, Cougars tear up Bulldogs for a 42-20 win

    The Fresno State Bulldogs were just coming off a big win over UCLA, and headed back up to Fresno for their home-opener against the Houston Cougars. They would be going up against a very talented quarterback in Case Keenum. Both the Bulldogs and Cougars had exactly 505 total yards, but that was where the similarities would end. The Houston offense would prove to be too much for the young Bulldog defense.

    The Bulldogs' main weakness in this game was their inexperienced secondary. They tried to cover the Cougars' receivers, but they just couldn't. When they played zone, Keenum was finding holes in the defense with ease. When the Bulldogs played man, the cornerbacks were being out-run, leaving the receivers wide open. Speed was the biggest issue for Fresno State, as they're players were being out-run on both sides of the ball.

    The other problem with the Bulldogs was that they were not taking advantage of Houston's mistakes. Keenum, as good as he was playing, still had two very bad passes that hit the defenders right in the hands, but they couldn't hang on. Beall, the running back, also fumbled the ball twice, and one of those fumbles was literally less than a foot outside the goalline. Unfortunately, the defense couldn't find the ball fast enough. This could have been four game-changing turnovers for the Bulldogs, but instead they finished the game with none.

    Player of the game went to Case Keenum, who was outstanding for the Cougars. He was 18 of 24 for nearly 300 yards and 4 touchdowns. Ryan Matthews also played well for the Bulldogs. He ran for over 100 yards and scored twice, once through the air and once on the ground.

    Week 3 - Fresno State @ Michigan
    In a nailbiter, the Bulldogs escape from The Big House with a win, 34-31

    [​IMG]
    Once again, Matthews came through big for the Bulldogs

    After a crushing home loss to Houston, the Bulldogs had to regroup and had to travel to Ann Arbor, home of the Michigan Wolverines. Fresno State's defense would have their eyes not on Tate Forcier, but on junior running back Michael Shaw, who was named the national player of the week last game as he ran for nearly 250 yards and 4 TDs. The Big House was filled to watch the Wolverines play the Bulldogs. If Fresno State was going to get a win in this environment, they would need quarterback Ryan Colburn and running back Ryan Matthews to step up for the big game. And they did.

    In the first quarter, the Shaw showed the Bulldog defense why they should be afraid. He was running away from everyone, and was the main reason that the Wolverines got a touchdown in the first quarter. For the rest of the half, it was pretty much back and forth, and after a Fresno State field goal as time expired in the second quarter, the socre was much closer than the experts predicted: 21-20, Wolverines' lead.

    Shaw shows his elusiveness, but freshman J.B. Dock tackles him a yard short of the endzone. Two plays later...

    Bates gets his first INT of the season, showing why he is Fresno State's impact player on defense

    In the third quarter, the Bulldogs played great defense, holding the explosive Michigan offense to just a field goal. The Bulldogs would score on a run by Ryan Matthews, and the fourth quarter began with the Bulldogs leading by only 3 points.

    Matthews is put in motion and catches the defense off guard for a nice TD

    Later in the fourth, Forcier led the Wolverines down the field for a touchdown and Michigan took the lead. With not much time left and down by four, Colburn had to lead the Bulldogs down the field for a go-ahead touchdown. To everyone's surprise, Colburn, who had been perfect for the first three quarters, threw an interception, and it looked like all hope was gone for the Bulldogs. A few plays later, Forcier threw a bad pass, and cornerback Rashad Evans was able to pick it off, giving the Bulldogs new hope. Fresno State had good field position and just enough time left to score. Once they got the ball to the two yard line, they knew what they had to do. Colburn handed the ball of to Matthews, and with just 12 seconds remaining in the game, Matthews pounded it into the endzone for the score. Fresno State had beaten the Michigan Wolverines 34-31.

    Ryan Matthews fights his way in to score the game-winning TD

    Player of the game went to Matthews, who ran for 158 yards and scored 4 total touchdowns. It was the third straight game that he scored both on the ground and through the air. However, for some, his performance was overshadowed by the losing team's running back, Michael Shaw. Shaw had another terrific game, running for 174 yards and 2 touchdowns on just 15 carries. He also had two catches for 49 yards and two kick returns for 49 yards. He averaged 14.3 yards everytime he touched the ball. The two teams were also very close statistically. In total offense, rushing yards, and passing yards, the Wolverines and Bulldogs had nearly identically stats.

    "On the road, at Michigan - it was a tough game, and we were able to somehow get the win here," said Coach Max, "We needed this to bounce back after last week's loss, and hopefully we can keep up the good play."

    The Fresno State Bulldogs have another away game next week when they face the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, their first conference game of the season.

    Week 4 - Fresno State @ Louisiana Tech
    Bulldogs win, Bulldogs lose, thanks to turnovers

    This was a big game for both Fresno State and Louisiana Tech as it was their first conference game. Louisiana Tech entered the game ranked fourth in the nation in passing offense, so Fresno State and their young secondary had a lot to handle. Fresno State's true freshman free safety Charlie Scott had an injured shoulder, but he decided to play anyways and was a big reason that the Fresno State Bulldogs won the game.

    Usually, playing an away game is a disadvantage, but tonight it actually helped Fresno State. It was a wet and rainy night, and the weather seemed to only affect Louisiana Tech.

    True freshman Charlie Scott gets his first career INT in the first quarter

    Scott recovers a fumble later in the first quarter

    During the first half, the Fresno State passing offense was terrible. Colburn was just off - balls were batted down, he was missing receivers, and he was under constant pressure. It would not be until the third quarter that the passing game would show signs of life. Luckily, they had a running game with Ryan Matthews. However, he did not score a touchdown in the first half, and would not score in the second half either. With an offense struggling this badly, it was a surprise the Fresno State Bulldogs were able to get points, let alone have the lead.

    With 12 seconds left in the first half, L.J. Jones makes a nice interception. The following play, Ryan Colburn tried to go deep, but found nobody open. He dumped it off to running back A.J. Ellis, who was tackled at midfield, but a facemask penalty by Louisiana Tech put them in field goal position, and Goessling nailed the kick as time expired.

    Ryan Colburn makes a nice off-balanced throw off of his back foot to find Matt Lindsey in the endzone during the third quarter

    This was made possible through good defense. To some, good defense means that the opposing offense does not move the ball and is held to very few yards. This was not the case for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, who had a very good offensive attack in the air and on the ground. For Fresno State, good defense meant getting turnovers. Two weeks ago against Houston, they had four should-have-been-turnovers, but could not get any. This week, they took advantage of every opportunity. They intercepted Louisiana Tech three times during the game and forced and recovered two fumbles. The Fresno State offense may not have been pretty all game, but they did not turn over the football a single time. With a +5 turnover margin, it is hard to lose, and Fresno State didn't. They would eventually win the game 33-20.

    On fourth down, wide receiver Taylor Stewart gets open for his first touchdown of the year

    Player of the game was Charlie Scott, the true freshman free safety. Scott was playing injured, but that did not stop him from leading the defense. Scott had 9 tackles, 1 interception, and 1 forced fumble. He was named the WAC defensive player of the week for his gutsy performance.

    "This was our first step toward our goal of winning the WAC," said Coach Max after the game. The Bulldogs will play a non-conference game against Ole Miss next week before heading back into conference play against New Mexico State.

    Week 5 - Fresno State @ #21 Ole Miss
    Bulldogs embarrass the ranked Rebels at Home, 41-24

    [​IMG]
    Wide receiver Devon Wylie was excited to beat Ole Miss

    Fresno State came prepared to play against the Ole Miss Rebels. Coach Max expected his players to go out and get the victory, but he didn't expect to win by three scores.

    [​IMG]
    Running back Ryan Matthews had another solid performance that earned him player of the game

    Jevan Snead, Ole Miss's star quarterback, looked to be the difference in the game. Snead, one of the nation's top three QBs, came into the game tied for second with 12 TD passes and was seventh in the nation in passer rating. Surprisingly, it was the Bulldogs' QB Ryan Colburn who had the better game today. Snead got off to a very rough start: in the first quarter, he was 2/3 for 1 yard, and by halftime, he only had 34 yards of passing. The key stat was that by the end of the game, Snead was 15 of 35, yet over half of his incompletions were drops. Was this because of the hard-hitting Fresno State secondary, or was it his fault for putting his receivers in nasty situations?

    Matthews takes the pitch, gets to the outside and down inside the 20

    Well, the first quarter was all about the Fresno State defense. They had done a great job in pass defense, and kept Brandon Bolden under control for the most part. It took a play out of the wildcat formation for the Rebels to get a touchdown, but that would be their only touchdown until the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs' offense played well enough in the first half to get ahead 17-10, and they took over the third quarter.

    The Bulldogs' opening drive of the second half took just over a minute and ended on this pass to Wylie

    At the start of the second half, Fresno State's passing game found a rhythym, and Colburn made a ton of nice passes. Most importantly, the Bulldogs connected on more long pass plays than usual, something that was, for the most part, uncommon earlier in the year. Colburn seemed like he was going to keep picking apart the defense, but after the Bulldogs got inside the 5-yard line later in the quarter, he was injured. He would be out for the game, and Ebahn Feathers, the sophomore who has not even taken a snap yet this year, stepped in for him.

    Play-action was huge for Colburn throughout the game

    [​IMG]
    Sophomore quarterback Ebahn Feathers scores his first TD

    Feathers is a completely different quarterback than Colburn - he's a scrambler, and has very good speed. On his first play, he kept the ball on an option play and scored. The Bulldogs only ran one designed pass play with him for the rest of the game. This change of pace was too much for the defense to handle, and Feathers would score again on a 61-yard run. Ole Miss managed to get two TDs in the fourth, but that only made it look like it was not as bad of a beating. Fresno State won with a final score of 41-24.

    Feathers took advantage of the chance to show what he can do and scores on a 61-yard run

    [​IMG]
    The Rebels were dissapointed with their loss to the Bulldogs

    Maybe Feathers and a new offense will be in the making for the Bulldogs in 2011, but who knows. "We're worried about next week's game against New Mexico State, not about what our team will look like next year." Coach Max also stated that if Colburn is not cleared to play, Feathers will make the start against the Aggies. He also did make one comment on next year, stating that just because Feathers is their second QB now doesn't mean he won't be the back-up next year as well. Junior Matt Faulkner will put up a challenge for the starting job. But let's not deal with this until next spring.

    Week 6 - Recruiting Update

    Before the game against New Mexico State, the Bulldogs received their first commitment of 2010, defensive tackle Randall McDuffie. McDuffie was scheduled to have a visit that week, as were several other recruits, but he committed before the visit. McDuffie is a very balanced DT and will provide even more talent to an already-solid position on the Fresno State defense. (see more info in post 1)

    Week 6 - New Mexico State @ Fresno State
    Over at the half: Bulldogs give Aggies a 61-20 beatdown


    The game against New Mexico State was not big just because it was a conference game. It was also a big day for recruiting as well. Several recruits around California who were targetted by Fresno State showed up for this game, and the Bulldogs did not disappoint.

    The Bulldogs got off to a quick start, taking a 17-0 first quarter lead thanks to a fast-paced offense and great defensive play. By the end of the second, the game was over for the most part, as the Bulldogs led 41-13. Both Matthews and Colburn would be pulled early in the second half, and the Bulldogs went on to win 61-20.

    While Matthews was named the player of the game, Colburn had one of his best outings yet. If you look just at the yards, he wasn't spectacular (he had only 232 passing yards), but each of his throws was spot on. He was 15 of 18 with only three incompletions, one of which was a drop, giving him a 228.2 passer rating. Colburn did a great job of finding the open man and spreading the ball around.

    Week 7 - Fresno State @ Utah State
    Just winning, even in a 61-20 blow out, isn't good enough for Bulldogs


    For the second week in a row, the Bulldogs beat an Aggie team 61-20. This time though, the Aggies from Utah State, who were shut out by the Bulldogs last year, made Fresno State appear much worse than the previous week.

    Normally, when you're team wins 61-20, it's a good thing. Normally, when your quarterback throws for a career high in yards and touchdowns, it's a good thing. Normally when your offense puts 583 yards on the opposing defense, it's a good thing. Unfortunately, this was not good enough for Coach Max, who was extremely disappointed in his offense's performance.

    "We should have beaten [the Aggies] by AT LEAST two more touchdowns!" he said after the game. He had all the reason to be upset with his offense, especially Ryan Colburn, the quarterback. Colburn was completely different from the week before. Off-target for most of the time he was in, Colburn missed 17 of his throws, four of which were drops and three of which were interceptions, a season high. The offensive line had an equal amount of blame. They couldn't handle the poor defensive linemen of Utah State, and Colburn was sacked 7 times and hit many more times. The one player on offense who had a good day was Matt Lindsey, the player of the game. He had a great day, catching 6 balls for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns, all career highs.

    The reason the Aggie offense was not able to put up a fight was because of the exceptional defense of the Bulldogs, led by LE Jensen and DT Banks, who each had 3 sacks. The defense totaled 8 sacks and 6 takeaways (4 interceptions) and held the Aggies to just 250 offensive yards. Their play really saved the offense from a lot more criticism.

    Week 8 – Idaho @ Fresno State
    Fresno State wins in the red zone, 51-24


    Statistically, the Idaho offense did everything they could to win: they had 300 passing yards, over 200 rushing yards, and had a time of position that was 70% greater than Fresno State’s TOP. They even shut down running back star Ryan Matthews, holding him to a season low of 65 yards. Despite all the yardage given up by the Fresno State defense, they continuously tightened up when it mattered: in the red zone. The Vandals made it inside the 20 seven times during the game, and four times they left with ZERO points. That’s a possible 28 points, which was the difference between a win and a loss.

    The Fresno State offense had a lot less stress on them thanks to the defense, and it was definitely a good thing because they had no running game. They had to rely on the arm of Ryan Colburn, and with no pressure on himself, he put up great numbers, earning him player of the game honors. His accuracy was still down a bit, but the senior QB made several great passes and threw for nearly 350 yards and four touchdowns. It was a great turn-around from last week’s sub-par performance.
