Bulldogs face QB quandary after Keene injury in Wyoming

It’s looking increasingly likely that Saturday will be the Logan Fife show against Utah State.

Fresno State’s quarterback situation has become uncertain due to an injury to starting quarterback Mikey Keene in the late stages of Saturday’s 24-19 defeat to Wyoming.

Keene suffered an ankle injury after taking a sack from Wyoming’s DeVonne Harris in the fourth quarter and and was unable to finish the match.


The big picture: Fresno State coach Jeff Tedford expressed uncertainty about the extent of Keene’s injury and mentioned that an MRI would determine the long-term impact.

  • As a result, Keene’s availability for the Saturday’s game against Utah State remains uncertain.
  • In Keene’s absence, Logan Fife is expected to start at quarterback for Fresno State.
  • Fife showed his ability by completing 7-of-11 pass attempts for 68 yards against Wyoming, including an eight-yard touchdown pass. However, a late-game interception sealed the Bulldogs’ fate in Laramie last week.
  • Additionally, true freshman and Buchanan High alum Jayden Mandal has been designated as the backup quarterback due to Josh Wood’s shoulder surgery, according to Tedford.

What they’re saying: “[Logan] wasn’t fazed by the moment at all,” Bulldog offensive coordinator Pat McCann said. “I look back and when he stepped in against USC last year when Jake got hurt, I think he went 11-of-12. He prepares well every week. He gave Mikey a run for his money in the quarterback competition in the first place.”
