Fresno State visits the Glass Bowl as the Bulldogs get set to take on the Toledo Rockets on Saturday afternoon.
The Bulldogs come in off a 31-3 victory over Sacramento State while the Rockets have opened the season with back to back wins.
Fresno State Bulldogs
After looking rather foolish against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the season opener, the Bulldogs responded with a better performance, albeit was against FCS opponent Sacramento State.
The Bulldogs defense was the biggest key, as they were the most impressive in terms of a bounce back performance.
Fresno State allowed just 185 yards of total offense, this after allowing 406 yards against Nebraska.
QB Chason Virgil has compiled 407 yards passing this season, while tossing 3 touchdowns. However, his 2 interceptions have come at the expense of some forced decisions, something he must improve on as the season goes on.
Fresno State went just 1-5 last season on the road and is already 0-1 this season away from home.
Toledo could be in store for a big season.
The Rockets are picked by some to win the MAC and have started their non conference slate off very well. Toledo went on the road and throttled Arkansas State and then followed that up with no let down against FCS opponent Maine.
The Rockets have now gone 2-0 ATS this season covering as an underdog and favorite.
Offensively, the Rockets have been a pass dominant team thus far. They have averaged 350 yards per game through the air, while rushing for 186.
Look for the Rockets to really use the run game here, as the Fresno front was quite exposed by the Nebraska run game back in Week 1.
The Rockets will lean on RB Kareem Hunt, who has 144 yards on 32 carries this season.
