Las Vegas Bowl victory and record 12th win for Bulldogs
LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX26) —
The Fresno State football team is coming home with the Las Vegas Bowl trophy after wrapping up the winningest season in school history.
The Bulldogs carried an 11-2 record into Saturday's game against the Arizona State Sun Devils.
The Bulldogs would score the first 10 points off a 39-yard field goal and a 70-yard pick-six by Anthoula Kelly.
The Sun Devils would score back to back touchdowns to take the lead 14-10, but Fresno scored another touchdown and Arizona kicked a field goal to go into the half tied at 17.
In the second half, Arizona would only kick one more field goal while the Bulldogs scored two more touchdowns to win 31-20.
The victory in Las Vegas would be the 12th for the season, which is the first time in Fresno State's 97-year history that the football team has won 12 games.
Congratulations to the team and to 2nd year head coach, Jeff Tedford.
The Bulldogs were ranted in the Top 25 prior to the game, so the win should keep them there for the August 31st game against the USC Trojans at the Coliseum.
