    [h=3]Colorado Daily – Fresno State[/h]September 8th
    First Look – Fresno State
    Fresno State takes care of business against Cal Poly
    From ESPN … Isaiah Burse had three touchdowns, two on punt returns, to lead Fresno State over Cal Poly 41-25 Saturday night.
    Burse’s touchdown returns of 61 and 58 yards came in the first half and tied a Fresno State (2-0) record set in 2005 by Clifton Smith.
    David Carr, coming off a record-setting performance last week against Rutgers, threw three touchdowns, including one to Burse. Carr’s third TD was to Davante Adams who now has caught a touchdown pass in 10 straight games, adding to his school and Mountain West records.
    Carr also adds to the Bulldog record book with 71 career touchdown passes, becoming the third Bulldog to surpass 70.
    Chris Brown led the Mustangs (1-1) with three touchdowns. He connected with Willie Tucker for a 7-yard touchdown, and then rushed for two more fourth quarter.
    Bulldogs more dominant than final score of 41-25 suggests
    From the Fresno Bee … Fresno State receiver Isaiah Burse made it look fun and easy with his punt returns.
    Offensive lineman Austin Wentworth added some laughs thanks to a tricky hook-and-ladder touchdown.
    And the Bulldogs defense was stifling when it mattered.
    Just as Fresno State should look when a potential BCS-busting team is paired against a lower-level opponent.
    The Bulldogs entertained early and dominated long enough in other facets before the reserve units dampened the excitement with a sloppy finish en route to a 41-25 victory against Cal Poly on Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.
    The Bulldogs led 34-0 at the half before emptying their bench early in the second half and surrendering a couple of touchdowns soon after in front of the announced crowd of 33,260.
    “Should’ve finished the game much better than we did,” Bulldogs coach Tim DeRuyter said. “We’ve got to do a much better job developing our depth. Having said that, the goal every week is to go 1-0. And we did that.”
    Buffs a 9.5 point underdog to the Bulldogs
    Vegasinsider.com has Colorado listed as a 9 1/2 point underdog at home to Fresno State this weekend.
    Considering Fresno State ran out to a 35-0 first quarter lead against Colorado last season, and were a comfortable 34-0 ahead of Cal Poly at the half on Saturday, a 9.5 point spread is perhaps not a bad line for the Buffs.
    Mike MacIntyre v. Fresno State
    CU head coach was 1-1 against Fresno State in his time at San Jose State, with both games coming against former head coach Pat Hill.
    In 2010, the Spartans fell at home to the Bulldogs, 33-18. The loss was fifth in a row for San Jose State, on its way to a 1-12 season. When the Spartans played the Bulldogs, they were already 1-6, with losses to Alabama (No. 1), Wisconsin (No. 11), Utah (No. 13), Nevada (No. 21) and Boise State (No. 3) … Thank heavens the Buffs do not face that lineup in Year One of the Mike MacIntyre era at CU!
    In 2011, MacIntyre and the Spartans got even with the Bulldogs, winning 27-24 in Fresno. The victory gave MacIntyre and the Spartans a 5-7 overall record, and a two game winning streak to take into the 2012 season. The Bulldogs would go on to lose to San Diego State in their finale (to finish 4-9), the final game under Pat Hill.
