Cali travel ban won't affect Fresno State-Bama

Fresno State's football game at the University of Alabama this fall is expected to go on as scheduled, despite California's decision to ban travel to Alabama by its state employees.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Fresno State (109th in FPI) has the toughest start to the season, according to FPI. While the Bulldogs face FCS opponent Incarnate Word in Week 1, they are on the road at Alabama in Week 2 and at Washington in Week 3. According to FPI, even a top-25 team would have just a 4 percent chance to win all three games.
