Fresno State came up with a victory they badly needed, especially after how this game started.
Their offense was flat, their defense was tired, and Cincinnati had capitalized on Fresno State quarterback Ryan Colburn's interception and took a 14-0 lead on the Bulldogs.
After that, Fresno State finally woke up, and so did their quarterback. After putting up just eight total yards in the entire first quarter, the Bulldog offense exploded and scored 28 unanswered points including a 59-yard strike to Rashad Evans to start the fourth quarter.
This was a win Fresno State, and head coach Pat Hill, desperately needed and it gives them a ton of confidence heading into two tough road games against Utah State, who gave Oklahoma a run for its money, and Ole Miss, who was upset by Jacksonville State earlier in the day.
Here are 10 observations from Saturday's huge Fresno State win.
