SAN DIEGO (AP) — Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr will be playing in an NFL stadium Saturday as the No. 15 Bulldogs face San Diego State.
This time next season, Carr, a senior, should be in one on a regular basis.
The task facing the Aztecs (3-3, 2-0 Mountain West) is stopping Carr with the nation's 109th-ranked pass defense. If not, they'll become just another speed bump for Fresno State (6-0, 3-0).
Carr, the younger brother of former NFL quarterback David Carr, ranks second nationally with 379.8 yards passing per game and 23 touchdown passes. When comparing his numbers through the first six games to the last five Heisman-winning quarterbacks, Carr's statistics are better.
