Better Than Advertised! Batman Flys Again
Clifton 'Batman' Smith returned two punts for touchdowns in the Bulldogs 55-17 win over Weber State. His 189 punt return yards was a school record, and also became the first Bulldog to return two punts for touchdowns in the same game. What might even be more rewarding for the former Edison(Fresno) High School standout was his 84 yard return earning #6 on ESPN's Sportscenter Top Ten.
Wendell Mathis rushed for 77 yards with three touchdowns on the ground, while Paul Pinegar was nearly flawless completing 14 of 18 passes for 189 yards and two scores.
Garret McIntyre was carted off the field with an apparent ankle sprain late in the third quarter, but should play against Oregon.
Coming later, my complete analysis of the game................
