Fullback Malique Micenheimer, top right, finds an opening in the defense during Fresno State football's Spring Game held at Bulldog Stadium on Saturday, March 23, 2013 in Fresno, Calif. Fresno State was hoping to have Malique Micenheimer back from a shoulder injury suffered in the loss to Nebraska within a few weeks, but it turns out the senior running back will require surgery.
He ranks third in the Mountain West and tied for 24th nationally with 7.0 receptions per game this season ... after having their 13-game home winning streak snapped last weekend with the loss to the 21st-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers, which at the time was the second-longest home winning streak in the nation, the Bulldogs now look to start a new home winning streak ... Bulldog defenders Kyrie Wilson and Derron Smith are both tied for fifth in the conference with 26 tackles apiece.
Buried under an avalanche of busted coverages, missed tackles, wayward passes, sacks and tackles for loss allowed -- among other debris from three consecutive blowout losses to start the season -- is one simple fact. Fresno State, which is 0-3 and looked bad getting there, still has its primary goal of winning a third consecutive Mountain West Conference championship ahead of it.
Did you stay up until the very end? Or did you decide to head off to bed once you became comfortable with the Huskers lead? Or maybe you just recorded the game on your DVR and watched it on Sunday morning. Some Husker fans were worried about this game.
Nebraska improved to 3-0 and took care of a little detail that stuck in Pelini's craw last week. That is, NU failed to stomp on McNeese State's throat when the Cowboys were on the ropes late in the second quarter.
When the first reports emerged Saturday evening that Nebraska was wearing the infamous "Surrender Whites" uniforms in Fresno, it sent Husker fans into a minor panic. Since first resurrecting the look in 1990, Nebraska is 2-10 wearing white pants with a white jersey, a look that really only works for Penn State.
If the Raiders' Derek Carr is overwhelmed as the only rookie starting quarterback in the NFL, he's great at masking his anxiety. He speaks with perspective, admitting he can't possibly know everything, but he is doing all he can to master the game.
"Every time I turn around, people keep asking me the same question: Who you going to root for?" said Willie Harper , who introduced the question without me ever asking it. Nebraska's two-time first-team All-America defensive end brought up the subject himself.
Getting to see the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders play in person can be an experience in itself. The 49ers have moved into new digs, Levi's Stadium, in Santa Clara.
Right off the bat, let's be honesta this is a terrible week of college football games. There are less than a handful of legitimately important matchups, and what's worsea it's the kind of week where we're probably going to see a lot of second string players get way too much play.
Technically, it was his brother, David, who suited up for the Houston Texans from 2002-06. But little Derek got his first taste of the NFL in those days, both on the field and off.
Time to talk Bulldogs, and who else to do it with but one of the main men who cover Fresno State for our SBN community dedicated to the entire conference. Your Nebraska Cornhuskers will be heading West here in a little bit for their tussle with the Fresno State Bulldogs .
21 Nebraska on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Bulldog Stadium. With Fresno State sporting a 13-game home winning streak, currently the second-longest in the nation behind Northern Illinois' 27-game streak, this might be the most anticipated home game since 2008 when the 10th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers rolled into Bulldog Stadium to face No.
Fresno State Karl Mickelsen, seen here leading a group in stretching during fall camp, is counted on from his inside linebacker to make the calls and adjust the defense. So it comes as no surprise he's taking things a little personally after the Bulldogs were roughed up in their first two games of the 2014 season.
