Fresno State Vs Alabama (Is It Cupcake Week Already?)

The Bulldogs of Fresno State, easily one of the 20 worst teams in CFB, are prohibitive underdogs against the powerhouse Crimson Tide.  They were 1-11 in 2016.  Under now-fired Coach Tim DeRuyter, the Dogs went a combined 20-6 in 2012 and 2013 but fell off the cliff in the years following.

Last Saturday Fresno State ran away with the game against the Incarnate Word Cardinals pummeling them 66-0.  Incarnate Word (NCAA Division I) went 3-8 in 2016.

Fresno State’s QB, Chason Virgil, had several throws that went awry. He struggled early with accuracy down the field.  An end zone pass was overthrown and he underthrew two passes in UIW territory that should have been touchdowns.  That doesn’t matter though.  The game was a blowout.

The FSU Bulldogs will travel to Bryant-Denny Stadium despite Mexifornia’s travel ban to Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

New coach Jeff Tedford and his mangy dogs will make the cross-country trek to Tuscaloosa for a ginormous payday.  The two schools struck a deal in June of 2015 well before the ban took effect on January 1, 2017.  Fresno State will be paid a whopping $1.4 million to be utterly and completely humiliated.  That should go a long way towards paying for the new $892,000 video scoreboard that was installed at Bulldog Stadium in 2015 plus some Milk Bones.

This game won’t be competitive for even five minutes.  ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives Fresno State a 0.6% chance of winning.  I would be shocked if the Bulldogs gain more than 20 yards rushing.  Man, talk about your dog shaming…
