Ryan Matthews and his Bulldogs were among America's favorite teams in 2009, but in 2010 they'll have to find some new star power to achieve similar success.
Fortunately, the non-conference schedule includes Illinois, Cincinnati, and Cal Poly at home and Ole Miss on the road. Two of those games should be winnable, and even playing at Ole Miss will be doable in 2010.
I don't expect the WAC to be particularly strong either. UCLA is the better team, but the opportunities will come far easier to Fresno State, in my opinion.
