Mon, Sep 23, 2013

   Derek Carr launched his Heisman campaign with a 41-40 win over Boise State.

MOBILE -- Fresno State University launched a website and Heisman campaign for its quarterback, Derek Carr, on Saturday.

And then he went out and gave the new website some more materieal, breaking a seven-year curse against Boise State, as the Bulldogs upended their rivals, 41-40, with a late touchdown drive.

Carr finished the evening 39-of-60 passing, for 460 yards and four touchdowns. The win catapulted the Bulldogs into the top 25 for the first time in five years.

"It means a lot," Carr said after the game, "just because of how good of a football program (the Broncos) are."

For his efforts, Carr has been named the Senior of the Week by the Senior Bowl. Carr is on the Senior Bowl watch list for the 2014 game.

MURRAY NAMED ALUMNUS OF WEEK

He is the Senior Bowl Alumnus of the week.

It was Murray's first 100+ yard game since the season opener in 2012. Two years ago as a rookie he torched the Rams for 253 yards.
