Fresno State vs. Colorado State update: Rams trail Bulldogs 14-0 at halftime

The Fresno State Bulldogs have taken a 14-0 lead into halftime over the Colorado State Rams in today's matchup in Fort Collins.

Fresno State cashed in on bold decision making late in the half, when the Bulldogs' heavy punt rush resulted in a blocked punt and a short field. With 32 seconds left in the half, Derek Carr connected on a 20-yard touchdown pass.

The Bulldogs also scored midway through the first quarter on another short field. Phillip Thomas sacked Rams quarterback M.J. McPeek , forced a fumble, and recovered it to give the Bulldogs a 29-yard field. Fresno State used six plays to convert, scoring when Derek Carr hit Davante Adams for a ten-yard touchdown pass.

Meanwhile, Colorado State's offense has struggled to produce much of anything. The Rams totaled just 64 yards in the half, about 15 of which came on the final two plays as CSU was running out the clock to get to halftime.

Carr is 14-21 for 128 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions so far for Fresno. McPeek has thrown for just 25 yards on 3-7 passing.
