FRESNO, Calif. — Something big is brewing in the valley.
One season after finishing 1-11, the Fresno State Bulldogs have righted the ship under first-year Head Coach Jeff Tedford, who was the head coach of the California Golden Bears from 2002 to 2012.
Fresno State celebrated homecoming Saturday by blasting New Mexico, 38-0, to stay perfect in Mountain West Conference play. It was the first time since 1988 the Bulldogs have had multiple shutouts in a season.
Quarterback Marcus McMaryion lit up the Lobo defense by going 13-of-23 for 299 yards and three touchdowns. Jamire Jordan had three catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns, but it was teammate KeeSean Johnson who found his way to No. 2 on the SportsCenter Top 10 plays with a sick one-handed grab for a touchdown. He also finished with more than 100 yards receiving for the third straight game.
Josh Hokit and Ronnie Rivers added rushing touchdowns for Fresno State (4-2, 3-0). On defense, Juju Hughes logged 11 tackles for the Bulldogs. Mike Bell had 10 tackles and an interception.
With the loss, New Mexico fell to 3-3 (1-2). The Lobos play at home against Colorado State on Friday night, while Fresno State has a showdown with San Diego State on Saturday night.
