The 2022 calendar year will undoubtedly be a memorable one for Fresno State fans. As the year comes to a close, BarkBoard.com reflects on the top Bulldog moments over the past 12 months.

After nine months of anticipation and hype, the Red Wave faced an ultimate disappointment with a 1-4 record, injured star quarterback Jake Haener and safety Evan Williams, and an embarrassing loss to UConn. But the Bulldogs made history in the final three months of the year, becoming the first-ever FBS college football team to go from 1-4 to 10-4. The Bulldogs won nine consecutive games including the Mountain West Championship Game at Boise State and the LA Bowl.
