  05/21/22 - Jake HaenerrSr/2023, Fresno State, 6-1, 195 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  The Mountain West Conference will eliminate its two-division format in football for the 2023 season. The conference announced Friday that the two teams with the highest winning percentage will compete in the league championship game. The decision came two days after the NCAA threw out requirements dictating how conferences can determine their champions and the Pac-12 scrapped its two-division format. The two-division format will remain in place for the 2022 season.

A scheduling model and tiebreaking procedures are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Other conferences are expected to follow, most notably the 14-team Atlantic Coast Conference. The ACC is looking to implement a new scheduling model as soon as 2023. To have a conference title game, NCAA rules previously required leagues to split into divisions if they could not play a full round-robin schedule. But those rules were scrapped by the NCAA Division I Council. - AP College Football

  Former Fresno State wide receiver Keric Wheatfall went undrafted in the 2022 NFL draft, but was one of 19 players invited to the Philadelphia Eagles' minicamp this month. Now, he's officially signed with the team. Wheatfall initially attended Blinn College in Brenham, Texas after a successful two-sport high school career in Cypress Ranch, where he ran track as well.

During his two seasons in junior college, Wheatfall recorded six touchdowns, 798 yards and 47 receptions, with 247Sports ranking him No. 17 for junior college wide receivers. He went on to become a Bulldog soon after. Wheatfall earned an invitation to the Eagles' minicamp and later signed to the team. As a junior at Fresno State, Wheatfall appeared in 10 games, starting in four games and improving to 17 catches for 307 yards. In his senior year, Wheatfall received an All-Mountain West honorable mention for his position, but played in only five games. - The Collegian

  02/28/22 - Jalen CropperrJr/2024, Fresno State, 5-11, 172 (DS#51 WR) + More +

  Fresno State wideout Jalen Cropper had dismissed the reports that he would enter the NCAA transfer portal back in December, when the Bulldogs' football program was stuck in a temporary state of confusion. Coach Kalen DeBoer was off to a prime Power Five conference job at Washington in the Pac-12 and quarterback Jake Haener already had filed paperwork to transfer with the intention of returning to the Huskies' program, where he had started his college career. Cropper, who was second in the Mountain West Conference with 11 touchdown receptions and third with 85 catches, said that he would not be the next player to hit the transfer portal.

He did, however, leave a door open to an early entry into the NFL Draft. "Being draft-eligible, that's something I'll take into consideration, for sure, but I never had a thought of leaving Fresno State," he told The Bee. "I came here for a reason. I didn't come here to leave." But he ended any speculation on his future on Sunday, posting to social media he would return for a senior season. "These past 3 years have been life changing and the memories I have made with my teammates and this staff are ones that I will cherish forever," Cropper said, on Twitter and Instagram. "I'm grateful of everyone in the organization believing in me and helping me here as a man and as an athlete. - Fresno Bee

  12/18/21 - Jordan MimsrSr/2023, Fresno State, 5-11, 205 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  Jordan Mims ran for 165 yards and two touchdown and caught five passes for 71 yards and another score to help Fresno State beat UTEP 31-24 on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl. Fresno State (10-3) won the bowl game for the first time in three tries. Jake Haener was 26 of 41 for 286 yards and a touchdown. His status had been somewhat in doubt when he briefly entered the transfer portal after coach Kalen DeBoer took the job at Washington.

Mims' 22-yard catch and run late in third quarter gave the Bulldogs a 26-17 lead. But it was setting the tone with the ground game that was important, he said. "The offensive line, we preached running the ball hard all this week," Mims said. "Even though they have a good defense, it's all about us and what we do and I think we showed that (Saturday) by running the ball." Taking advantage of Mims was a key part of the game plan, said Bulldogs interim head coach Lee Marks. "We knew we were going to be able to rely on Jordan," he said. "To be honest, he's such a good player. One cut, get vertical, just downhill. He told me coach, 'I'm not going to get tired. And he did not. That's tremendous for him." The Miners (7-6) pulled to 26-24 early in the fourth quarter on Calvin Brownholtz's 51-yard touchdown pass to Trent Thompson. - Fresno State/AP College Football

In 2021, Remigio earned a second consecutive honorable mention by the Pac-12 for his prowess as a kickoff returner. With 29.1 yards per reception, Remigio ranked second in the conference and 11th nationally for kickoff return average. - Daily Californian
