Fresno State fever grows with each victory
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- With each victory, Fresno State fever grows for the nationally ranked Bulldogs.
This week the dogs host rival Nevada, and the university says tickets for Saturday night's home game could sell out in the next 48 hours.
Head Coach Tim DeRuyter said today that they have already sold more than 37-thousand tickets and expect Bulldog Stadium to sell out by Wednesday.
There was a small, but steady line, of fans on Monday buying tickets for Saturday's night's black-out game against rival Nevada.
The Bulldogs will be wearing all-black uniforms that the football team will be wearing for the first time ever.
Coach DeRuyter explains why he believes momentum is building for this team that has aspirations of busting the BCS and making a big money bowl game. "I think the fact that we've got a nationally ranked team, we're first in the conference. We've got a Heisman Trophy candidate. They're so many reasons to come this year in particular -- and there's only two more occasions for our fans that are guaranteed to see our guys and this is one of them."
The Dogs BCS hopes remain in tact thanks to a blocked field goal at the end of regulation by tight end Marcel Jensen -- and then Marteze Waller gave the dogs the lead in overtime. Fresno State would hold on defense and stay undefeated with the 35-28 win in San Diego.
