Saturday’s matchup between the Fresno State Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide pit teams No. 96 and No. 1 in S&P+ against each other. The Bulldogs were able to jump up 13 spots after sitting at 109th in the preseason rankings. That tends to happen after you win 66-0. Sure, it was against Incarnate Word. But they were nothing if not efficient on offense. And pitching that kind of shutout will have you taking leaps like that.
