Fresno Swept by Bulldog Pride

There's a lot of hype in the community and it seems like everyone is a Bulldog fan.
Bulldog merchandise is flying off shelves at the Bulldog Shop in Fresno.

I think if your whole house is painted red, you know you gotta also get the Bulldog, so I think it just kind of comes with it," said David Vartanian.

Die hard fans like Vartanian and his recently rescued bulldog, Murph are stocking up on everything red.
The Boise State game also caused stadium tickets to sellout.  It's the first time since 2008.
It's been seven years since Fresno State has beat Boise and the recent winning streak has fans pumped.
The Bulldog Shop's manager says they can't keep items in the store long enough.

"Been on the phone all the time within the last couple of weeks trying to get more merchandise. Reorder, reorder, reorder, it's exciting," said Bulldog Shop Manager, Diane Brock.

The spirit is creating a hype both off and on campus.

"A lot of the students talk. Hey, are you going to the game, let's sit together...let's tailgate together," said Fresno State Sophomore, Samantha Wright.

Now, fans will be tailgating for a team that's 3-0 for the first time since 2004.

"Super excited to be back in the top 25.  You know, I think it gives so much more recognition to not just the athletic department, but academics as well," said Vartanian.

The next home game is against UNLV, Saturday, October 19th. Kickoff is at 7PM.
It will also be homecoming.
