Fresno Bee: Not much buzz for Weber State game

For the first time in 16 years, Fresno State will have a coach not named Pat Hill patrolling the sidelines when the Bulldogs take on Weber State and the Fresno Bee reports that Dawgs fans are taking a wait-and-see attitude toward new coach Tim DeRuyter:

As of Friday evening, Fresno State had sold 24,000 tickets for today’s game against Weber State, putting the Bulldogs in danger of playing before their smallest crowd for a season opener at Bulldog Stadium since 1997.

The Bee also took a look at the Bulldogs’ offense and defense as well as their new coordinators. Bee sports writer Bryant-Jon Anteola is on Twitter @Banteola_TheBee.

And here’s my preview of Weber State coach Jody Sears’ first game at the helm of the Wildcats program.

DeRuyter was the interim boss who coached Texas A&M in a bowl game last year, so he’s undefeated (1-0) as a head coach.

The Wildcats, who are 3-46 all-time against FBS opponents, will be the underdogs in tonight’s 8 p.m. game, but it will be interesting to see if they can make a fight out of it the way they did at Wyoming in last year’s season opener.

Tonight’s game will not be televised but is availabe online for a fee at
