Players Dismissed, Bulldogs Ranked

Two players were kicked off the Fresno State football team Tuesday.{} Receiver Victor Dean and defensive back Davon Dunn were dismissed by Athletic Director Thomas Boeh for unspecified rules violations.

Dean and Dunn, who were also suspended at the beginning of the 2012 season, will also lose their scholarships.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs also got some good news when they learned one of the nation's top college football publications has them in the preseason top 25.

Athlon Sports has Fresno State at number 22 in the nation, and projects the Bulldogs will win the Mountain West Conference's new West Division championship.

Athlon also named seven Bulldogs to its preseason all-conference first team.
