Fresno State has not left a lot of margin for error on the Bulldogs' run to the best start at the school in more than two decades.
No. 16 Fresno State (7-0, 4-0 Mountain West) has gone down to the wire in four of its seven wins this season, providing plenty of excitement for fans but also some anguish for coaches.
The Bulldogs hope to have it a little easier on Saturday night when they host Nevada (3-5, 2-3) in front of a rare sellout crowd at Bulldog Stadium.
It would be hard to have a game that provided more nail-biting moments than last week's 35-28 overtime win at San Diego State. Fresno State's high-powered offense was held to seven points until late in the third quarter and the Bulldogs blew a 28-14 lead.
