The Fresno State program has fallen on hard times lately.
They used to crank out quarterbacks and scare power opponents on a yearly basis but now they are just looking for respectability and avoiding the bottom in the Mountain West.
Since joining the Big Ten Nebraska has not been very special. Last year, their first under coach Mike Riley they were a snakebit team that lost a lot of close games.
If they can reverse that luck they could be in line for a division title run.
Fresno State Bulldogs
After a strong start thing have gone south in a hurry for coach Tim DeRuyter.
Last season neither the offense or defense was very good. Seven starters return on offense and that is the unit that will have to lead if they are going to win.
Quarterback Chason Virgil saw a little action before taking a medical redshirt.
He is the future.
All of the top receivers return but it is hard to know if that is a good thing because the passing game was so lame. Speaking of lame, last year’s defense yielded 38ppg, a number that has gone up 4 seasons in a row.
Just 5 starters return and they lost their most disruptive player. Improvement here does not look likely.
The Huskers should be able to throw the ball this season. Tommy Armstrong Jr. has been on campus so long he has to be a senior by now right? Thankfully he seems to be getting better and may actually have the best set of receivers in the conference to work with.
That may not be typical Nebraska football but it should work.
This Nebraska team is atypical on defence too. The “Blackshirts” defence this is not.
The strength of this group is the secondary, they have some serious playmakers back there. The defence might get pushed around up front this season but Fresno State is not likely the team to do it.
