Golden Bears Racking Up Big Numbers on Offense
Are the Fresno State Bulldogs confused about which sport they are playing tonight? The game, after all, is being played on a baseball field. (San Francisco's Candlestick Park.)
California is on top of Fresno State 26-14 with about five minutes left in the third quarter.
The California Golden Bears have never beat the Fresno State Bulldogs. Huh?
Granted, the teams have only met two previous times. Last time Fresno State and California played was in Fresno in 2000. The Bulldogs pulled out a 17-3 victory.
All signs are showing that the fourth time is the charm for California. Or maybe the baseball field is the charm.
Fresno State’s defense gave up 33 points a game last season. With the third quarter coming to close, California has already amassed 249 passing yards, 147 rushing yards and 26 points. That might get the trick done in winning WAC games, Dogs, but it just is not going to do playing a Pac-12 foe.
Averaging 10 yards per pass and 5.3 yards per rush, it certainly it looks like California is going to land well above the average 33 points that Fresno State coughed up per game last season.
It makes you wonder. Are the Golden Bears going to be a powerful offensive power this season in the Pac-12? Or is the Bulldog defense really that bad?
