Fresno St. Prepares For The High Octane Ducks

By Jim McCoy Fri 7th September Sportscollege footballOregon Ducks

While Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr knows No. 4 Oregon is going to be fast, and Autzen Stadium is going to be loud, he got over any fear associated with big games last season.

The Bulldogs opened last season with Pac-12 foe California at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. They also faced No. 10 Nebraska and Mississippi last season. Carr, the younger brother of former Fresno state QB Derek Carr, was a first-time starter as a sophomore.

At the first snap he realized it's still football.

But that doesn't diminish the "extreme" challenge that Oregon poses Fresno State on Saturday in Eugene, as first-year Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter puts it. Oregon is favored to win by as many as five touchdowns.
