USC, Oregon State highlight Bulldogs 2022 football schedule

The return of Fresno State head coach Jeff Tedford and a bevy of veteran stars, including quarterback Jake Haener, is likely to get Fresno State’s Red Wave excited for a big season on the gridiron.

Wednesday, Fresno State finalized and announced the 2022 schedule of nonconference and conference games to be played by the ‘Dogs in the fall.
