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.

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.
Aug 7 - 9:48 AM

Former Oklahoma senior CB Michiah Quick will play at Fresno State for the 2017 season.

It sounds like Quick will redshirt due to NCAA regulations. Quick was dismissed in late November after injuring his MCL in October. Quick is a former receiver.
Jul 28 - 10:13 AM

Fresno State redshirt junior WR Jamire Jordan's 713 yards receiving in 2016 ranked as ninth-most in the Mountain West.

Jordan (5'10/173) has played in all 24 games for the Bulldogs over the past two seasons, making 20 starts in that space -- including nine consecutive to close out the 2016 campaign. He finished up the past season having caught 45 passes for 713 yards and a pair of touchdowns. On those catches, he averaged a sweet 15.8 yards per reception. For the coming season, he will pair with Keesean Johnson in a receiving corp that looks to have a decent amount of depth -- Derrion Grim, Da’Mari Scott, Delvon Hardaway and Justin Allen could all work their way into the mix depending on how they perform in August camp.
Jul 11 - 6:41 PM

Fresno State redshirt junior WR KeeSean Johnson has added about 14 pounds this offseason.

Johnson was playing at 190 pounds last season. Make that 204 pounds or thereabouts as we near August camp. "Just by adding weight, he can be more physical and do some of the things that he wanted to last year that he probably felt like he couldn’t do because he wasn’t as big," said QB Chason Virgil. "I think he’s going to be a great threat for us." This past season, a slightly lighter Johnson registered a 66-773-6 receiving line. Those 66 receptions ranked as fifth-most in the Mountain West.

JUCO junior QB Reyna transferred to Fresno State.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback heads into the summer as the Bulldogs' No. 2 QB. Incumbent Chason Virgil is leading the quarterback derby, but he'll need to fend off Reyna for good come August. "I plan on being that guy," Virgil said. "That’s something me and the coaches talked about. I plan on being that guy, being that voice, being that motivator that everybody needs."
