‘Dogs Maul Buffs

FRESNO, CA – Fresno State scored a school and MWC record 35 first quarter points as the Bulldogs amassed a 55-7 halftime lead en route to a 69-14 win over Pac-12 foe Colorado on Saturday night at Bulldog Stadium. Robbie Rouse rushed for 144 yards as he set the FS career rushing record and scored four total touchdowns…

Robbie Rouse needed just nine carries to break Ron Rivers' 19-year-old career rushing mark. And he did it in grand fashion with a school record-tying 94-yard touchdown run with 2:39 to play in the first quarter. It was Rouse's fourth touchdown of the game, and capped a Fresno State 35-point first quarter.

Derek Carr connected on 17-of-22 passes for 300 yards with five touchdowns and one interception all in the first half as the Bulldogs built a commanding 48-0 lead over Colorado midway through the second quarter.

Isaiah Burse led all receivers with 107 yards receiving, including a 97-yard touchdown catch, which is the second longest offensive play in Fresno State history.

The Fresno State defense forced four Colorado turnovers, including three interceptions by safety Phillip Thomas. He returned two for touchdowns.

Fresno State opened the game with a nine-play, 65-yard drive capped by a Rouse four-yard touchdown run where he went left and changed direction diving the last yard over a Buffalo defender for the score.

Rouse scored the Bulldogs' first three touchdowns, including consecutive touchdown receptions on the exact same slant patter. He finished with four receptions for 42 yards. FS amassed 516 yards of total offense in the first half.

Jordan Webb was 5-of-13 for 85 yards passing with one touchdown and two interceptions for CU. Tyler McCulloch's 23-yard touchdown reception came with 5:25 to play in the second quarter.

The ‘Dogs improve to 2-1 on the season and travel to Tulsa next week to take on the 2-1 Golden Hurricane.
