Thursday night, the team will tackle Rutgers in the season opener at Bulldog Stadium, and Fresno State is favored to win.

There's a lot of excitement going into Thursday's game because the Bulldog's were undefeated at home last year, senior quarterback Derek Carr is back for another season when he could have gone to the NFL, and Coach Tim Deruyter is returning for his second season at Fresno State.

A lot of preparations went into getting the field ready for the big game. Crews spent all day Wednesday putting the final touches on the stadium to welcome fans.

Game time is 7:30 Thursday night at Bulldog Stadium. You can also watch the game on ESPN-U.

Don't forget it's a white out! Dogs will be wearing their all-white uniforms and fans are also asked to wear white t-shirts.
