FRESNO . (AP) — From a pregame ceremony honoring Derek Carr and the rest of the senior class to a record-setting offensive performance that led to a division championship, it was a celebratory day for No. 15 Fresno State.
Carr threw for 527 yards and a school-record seven touchdowns in his final regular-season home game to help the Bulldogs clinch a spot in the Mountain West title game with a 69-28 victory over New Mexico on Saturday.
Davante Adams had nine catches for 246 yards and four scores and Josh Harper added 10 for 161 and three TDs as the Bulldogs (10-0, 7-0) gained a school-record 820 yards and clinched first place in the West Division. They will likely host the conference championship game on Dec. 7 as long as they remain ahead of the Mountain Division winner in the BCS standings.
