FRESNO, Calif. --- The excitement surrounding the 15th-ranked Fresno State football team has produced the Bulldogs' third sell out of the 2013 season as Saturday's Mountain West contest between the 'Dogs and New Mexico Lobos is officially sold out.
This marks the first time that three Fresno State football home games have been sold out during a season since 2005. The previous two sell outs this season were for the Bulldogs' 41-40 win over Boise State on Sept. 20 and the 41-23 victory over Nevada on Nov. 2.
"A tremendous `Thank You!' to our fans, alumni and Fresno State students who have helped make this 2013 football season so special," said Paul Ladwig, Fresno State Senior Associate Athletics Director. "Selling out the last game of the season and the third overall will make tomorrow's Senior Day one to remember for 18 players who will walk down the ramp in Bulldog Stadium for the final time in the regular season."
Saturday afternoon's contest between No. 15 Fresno State (9-0, 6-0 MW) and New Mexico (3-7, 1-5 MW) will be broadcast live nationally on ESPNews and all fans are encouraged to wear red. Official gear for gameday is available at The Bulldog Shop - located at the northwest corner of Cedar and Barstow avenues.
The Bulldogs are one of six teams in the football bowl subdivision that remain unbeaten and Fresno State looks to extend several winning streaks on Saturday. The 'Dogs have won 14-straight regular-season games, 11-straight games at home and 11-straight games in Mountain West play.
The 'Dogs will also be going for their 10th win of the season, which would be the program's eighth 10-plus win season and the first since Fresno State went 11-3 in 2001.
On Saturday, tailgate lots will open at 9 a.m. and the Fresno State's March to Victory will start at 10 a.m. at Bulldog Boulevard. Gates to Bulldog Stadium will open at 11:30 a.m. and the special Senior Day ceremony will start at 12:45 p.m. The Bulldogs and Lobos will kick off at 1 p.m.
Before the game, Fresno State fans are invited to help celebrate the Bulldogs' volleyball team's Senior Day at the Save Mart Center with the 'Dogs hosting No. 10 Colorado State at 11 a.m. at the Save Mart Center. Admission for the volleyball match is FREE with no ticket required.
