Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the Fresno State Bulldogs are set to kick off the 2012 college football season in a new conference! Formerly a member of the Western Athletic Conference, the Bulldogs now find themselves members of the Mountain West Conference.
The Bulldogs operate under first year head coach Tim DeRuyter at Bulldog Stadium, which holds just over 41,000 roaring fans. The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Anquan Boldin; New York Jets cornerback, Antonio Cromartie; Oakland Raiders kicker, Sebsastian Janikowski, and San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews are among the list of NFL players who started their careers playing football at Fresno State. In 2001, the Bulldogs had there most memorable season under QB David Carr, as they defeated Big 12 champion Colorado Buffaloes, preseason #1 Oregon State Beavers, and highly talented Big 10 Wisconsin Badgers. After those three key wins, the Bulldogs saw themselves at #8 in the polls, which was the second highest ranking for a mid-major team. Even though the season ended in a disappointing way, QB Carr’s talents did not go unnoticed, as he was drafted #1 to the NFL later that year.
The Bulldogs have made bowl game appearances in 11 of the last 13 years, and this year they look to get back to that impressive resume. This season the Bulldogs will look to make a statement when they visit the preseason #4 Oregon Ducks on September 8. Fresno State has a history for upsets, so you do not want to miss this exciting game in the 2012 season. Gold Coast Tickets has the best selection for all of your Bulldog and 2012 college football season needs!
