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.

Jeremy Crabtree RecruitingNation 

While Washington State did announce three midterm junior-college signings Wednesday, including No. 11 offensive tackle Robert Valencia of City College of San Francisco, not all of the news was positive. The Cougars lost a commitment from George Moore, the No. 39 player in the ESPN JC 50 and their third highest ranked recruit in the 2017 class. Moore, a three-star offensive tackle out of College of San Mateo, has become a hot target with recruiters lately and now has offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, Fresno State, Missouri, Purdue, San Diego State, Syracuse and Utah State.
