Fresno State Makes A 2013 Top 25 List

USA Today has ranked the Fresno State football team in its first poll for the 2013 season.

The Bulldogs are at number 20, one spot ahead of Oklahoma.

Fresno State, a reigning Mountain West Conference tri-champion, has several key players returning from the team that finished the 2012 season with a record of 9-4. That is a dramatic turnaround from 2011, when the Bulldogs went 4-9 and head coach Pat Hill was replaced by Tim DeRuyter.

The only other Mountain West school to crack the USA Today 2013 top 25 is Boise State, at number 11.
