Fresno State junior WR KeeSean Johnson hauled in five passes for 58 yards in a 17-14 loss to Boise State on Saturday in the Mountain West Championship game.

Johnson (6'2/200) went off against Boise State last week with two touchdowns and 119 yards, but was held in check in this one. It was clear that the Broncos weren't going to let the star wideout beat them, as he saw a safety over the top of him on almost every play. It's still a strong season from the wideout, and assuming he comes back, he'll be one of the top returning receivers in the MWC in 2018. He has a chance to go over a thousand yards with a strong showing in the Bulldog's bowl game.

Fresno State redshirt junior QB Marcus McMaryion completed 16-of-34 passes for 172 yards with an interception and ran for two touchdowns and 33 yards in a 17-14 loss to Boise State on Saturday in the MWC championship game.

McMaryion and the Bulldogs did their best and had the lead for most of the game, but just couldn't muster anything offensively in the second half. Boise State also did a much better job of keeping the junior quarterback in the pocket in the final 30 minutes, and that's clearly not McMaryion's strength. It's still a remarkable turnaround for the Bulldogs, and they'll be rewarded with a bowl game this December, possibly a return to Boise in the Famous Potato Bowl.
Dec 2 - 11:29 PM

Fresno State redshirt junior WR KeeSean Johnson caught six passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 28-17 win over Boise State.

Stellar work by the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Johnson in this one. His true moment in the sun came when he hauled in an 81-yard rocket of a touchdown pass from Marcus McMaryion midway through the fourth quarter. This was his first 100-yard performance since he posted 105 yards receiving against New Mexico back on Oct. 14. On the whole, the redshirt junior is the owner of a 64-860-8 receiving line over the course of 12 games played. He'll try for a repeat of Saturday's showing in a rematch with the Broncos in the Mountain West Championship Game next weekend.
Nov 25 - 7:43 PM

Fresno State redshirt junior QB Marcus McMaryion completed 23-of-36 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 28-17 win over Boise State.

Both of McMaryion's touchdown passes landed in the waiting arms of KeeSean Johnson, the first coming from five yards out with 11:03 remaining in the first quarter and the second coming on a long 78-yard completion to Johnson with 8:59 left in the game. That latter touchdown was the team's final offensive score of the contest. They would put the finishing touches on the nice win with a safety of Brett Rypien with under two minutes remaining to kill off any slim hope of a Broncos comeback. For his part, McMaryion has now thrown for 2,212 yards with a 14/3 TD/INT ratio over the course of 12 games played. The Bulldogs and Broncos will tango once more in just a matter of days, as they'll face off again in next weekend's Mountain West Championship Game.
Nov 25 - 7:37 PM

Fresno State redshirt junior KeeSean Johnson caught six passes for 91 yards with two scores in a 31-21 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.

Johnson (6'2/200) has not been as big of factor in the Fresno State offense as he was early in the year, and these scores are his first trips to the end zone since October 14. His short four-yard score from Marcus McMaryion tied the game at 7-7, and his 16-yarder gave the Bulldogs a comfortable 31-7 lead late in the third quarter. Fresno State is one of the most improved teams in the country, in large part to improvement from players like Johnson. Fresno State has a big matchup with Wyoming next week.
Nov 12 - 3:18 AM

Fresno State redshirt junior QB Marcus McMaryion completed 14-of-20 passes for 174 yards in a 20-13 victory over BYU on Saturday.

There were no offensive standouts in this one on either side, but McMaryion's efficiency was the key to the victory. That and the ineffective BYU offense, anyway. Even though he didn't have any scores, he kept the chains moving for the Bulldogs, and he set up two short rushing touchdowns for Fresno State to take the victory. McMaryion and the much-improved Fresno State have a date next week with Hawaii.
Nov 5 - 1:06 AM

Fresno State sophomore RB Josh Hokit ran for three scores and 77 yards on 14 carries in a 27-3 victory over San Diego State on Saturday.

Hokit (6'1/220) has been getting more and more involved in the Fresno State offense, and had his best game as a Bulldog on Saturday. He opened the game's scoring with a one-yard plunge at the end of the first, and he added a 26-yard and four-yard touchdown in the second and fourth quarter. The vastly improved Bulldogs take on UNLV next week.
Oct 22 - 1:44 AM

Fresno State redshirt junior QB Marcus McMaryion threw for three touchdowns and 299 yards on 13-of-23 passing in a 38-0 crushing of New Mexico on Saturday.

McMaryion didn't have a ton of completions, but he sure made the most of them against the Lobos' defense. The completion percentages have been troubling, but he has been able to hit big-play wideouts KeeSean Johnson often enough to keep the Bulldogs in games, and he can make plays with his legs too (50 yards rushing tonight). McMaryion and Fresno State will look to stay undefeated in the conference next week against San Diego State.
Oct 15 - 1:23 AM

Fresno State redshirt junior KeeSean Johnson caught five passes for 108 yards and a touchdown in a 38-0 drubbing of New Mexico on Saturday.

Johnson (6'2/200) bounced back from a disappointing game against San Jose State last week with another trip to the century mark, and another trip to the end zone from quarterback Marcus McMaryion. Very quietly, Johnson has put up some of the best numbers in the Mountain West Conference. Those numbers are unlikely to be slowed down next week against Colorado State.
Oct 15 - 1:11 AM

Fresno State redshirt junior WR KeeSean Johnson caught seven passes for 104 yards and three touchdowns in a 41-21 victory over Nevada on Saturday.

Johnson (6'2/200) caught two touchdown passes from quarter Marcus McMaryion, and one from running back Josh Hokit on a trick play. This is the third of four games that Johnson has caught seven or more passes, but it's the first three touchdowns of the year. He's the best Bulldogs' offensive player, and he'll be the focal point again next week against San Jose State.
Oct 1 - 1:22 AM

Fresno State redshirt junior WR KeeSean Johnson caught seven passes for 120 yards in a 66-0 victory over Incarnate Word on Saturday.

Johnson was one of the bright spots for Fresno State's dreadful 2016 season (66-773-6) and the 6-foot-2, 200 pound wideout built on that strong season. His long catch of the day was a 34-yarder from quarterback Chason Virgil. To say that Fresno State's schedule gets tougher from here is an understatement, but Johnson is a legitimate talent who will be the top target all year for HC Jeff Tedford's Bulldogs.
Sep 3 - 1:15 AM

Fresno State redshirt sophomore QB Chason Virgil was announced as starter for Saturday's opener against Incarnate Word.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder beat out JUCO transfer Jorge Reyna and Oregon State transfer Marcus McMaryion. Fresno State's offense was abysmal last season, but they're hoping for better in coach Jeff Tedford's new system. In 2016, Virgil completed 51.6 percent of his passes for 2,021 yards and a 13/10 TD/INT rate.

Fresno State redshirt senior WR Delvon Hardaway (knee) will miss the 2017 season.

Hardaway (6'1/192) sustained the knee injury in practice last week. "It’s unfortunate," said HC Jeff Tedford. "He came down after he caught a ball and landed the wrong way and it went out." Unless the redshirt senior receives a medical hardship waiver from the NCAA, this injury for all intents and purposes ends his collegiate career. He finishes his time with the Bulldogs having caught 42 passes for 489 yards and two touchdowns in 22 games.

Aug 10 - 8:13 PM

Oregon State redshirt junior QB Marcus McMaryion transferred to Fresno State as a graduate.

McMaryion is from the Fresno area. He lost out on the Beavers' quarterback battle to JUCO transfer Jake Luton. McMaryion posted an 11/8 TD/INT ratio during his Oregon State career.
Aug 9 - 7:57 AM

Oregon State redshirt junior QB Marcus Maryion plans to transfer.

This announcement comes on the heels of JUCO transfer Jake Luton winning the quarterback competition. McMaryion has a 11:8 touchdown to interception ratio and started a few games for the Beavers last season. McMaryion is immediately eligible to play wherever he transfers after earning his degree.
