COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW: #87 FRESNO STATE

June 26, 2012

OFFENSE

It might come as a shock, for both fans and opponents, to see Fresno State line up with four receivers on 1st-and-10. New coach Tim DeRuyter scrapped the pro-style set the Bulldogs have used for decades and hired coordinator Dave Schramm to install a no-huddle spread. Now it’s up to the old personnel to make the new plan come together.

In theory, Derek Carr should flourish in the new system. Carr threw for 3,544 yards and 26 TDs in his first season as the starter, living up to the family name. The Bulldogs should again be a dangerous downfield passing team thanks to Carr’s strong arm and a deep receiving corps. That group, however, will not include Jalen Saunders, who averaged 21.3 yards per catch last year and scored 13 TDs. Saunders announced after spring practice that he intended to transfer. His departure means more opportunities for guys like Rashad Evans, Josh Harper, Davante Adams and Victor Dean.
