On this day in 1991, Fresno State tied an NCAA College Football record with 49 points in a quarter vs New Mexico. They won the game 94-17. To fully understand the magnitude of this victory, we have to go back to 1989 when the Fresno St. Bulldogs were 10-0 and ranked No. 23 in the nation. New Mexico beat Fresno State, winner of 17 consecutive games, 45-22, in front of a stunned Lobo audience at University Stadium. A rivalry, or at least a poor man’s version of one, was born. It lasted all of two years – ending in 1991 when Fresno St. absolutely crushed New Mexico. Leading 66-7 at halftime, the Bulldogs had tied an NCAA record by scoring 49 points in the second quarter. After the full 60 minutes were played, 10 Fresno State players had scored. The average gain per play was nine yards, and quarterback Mark Barsotti threw for three touchdowns and ran for two. If Fresno St. Coach Sweeney really wanted to, he and his Bulldogs could have surpassed the NCAA scoring record against a Division I-A opponent–100, set by Houston against Tulsa in 1968. Instead, the bench players saw a good amount of playing time in the second half in an effort to keep the score below triple digits.
