FSU freshman looking to make history

If Fresno State is to live up to expectations, coach Pat Hill knew he was going to have to find a new kicker to replace Clint Stister, who finished his career ranked No. 5 in most points scored by a kicker for the Bulldogs.

Enter freshman kicker Kevin Goessling.

During Sunday's scrimmage, Goessling converted all five of his field goal attempts -- 43, 45, 53, 33 and 36 yards -- and made his only PAT attempt of the day.

No freshman kicker has ever started under Hill, but four of the top seven kickers (based on scoring) in Fresno State history have played for Hill.

MTSU two-deep offense has no turnovers

The offense impressed during Middle Tennessee State's second scrimmage on Tuesday as the offense did not have a single turnover in 91 offensive possessions.

Quarterbacks Joe Craddock and Dwight Dasher combined to complete 24-of-39 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns.

"Offensively we were more productive and consistent (than on Saturday)," Blue Raider head coach Rick Stockstill said. "We did a good job taking care of the ball and we didn't have as many bad plays, negative plays, and we were able to complete more passes. We had a couple big plays that we didn't get (in Saturday's scrimmage)."
