Fresno State Survives Rutgers 52-51

Derek Carr and Fresno State made up for an otherwise lackluster showing by Mountain West Conference teams yesterday, prevailing 52-51 in overtime over Rutgers.  The Scarlet Knights had missed a 43-yard field goal in the final seconds of regulation, and Carr floated a pass down the middle for a touchdown on the first play of overtime.  Rutgers came back with a touchdown, but failed a two-point conversion.

San Jose State was the only other winner among the new MWC teams with a 24-0 victory over Sacramento State.  Utah State had Utah on the ropes, but not only let them out of danger; they let them win the game, 30-26.  Hawai'i fell to USC 30-13 at home and UNLV was pounded by Minnesota 50-23.
