Fresno State Helmet 'V'This representation of the San Joaquin Valley is displayed in the form of a green "V" on the back of the Bulldogs' helmets. The green in the "V" is a symbol to the agricultural community of the Central Valley, which is the world's richest agricultural area in export dollars. When Pat Hill became Fresno State's head coach prior to the 1997 season, he wanted to reinvigorate San Joaquin Valley pride in the Bulldogs. Because Fresno State is the only Division I football program in the Valley, a 250-mile stretch in California's midsection from Bakersfield to Modesto, Hill wanted to make the Bulldogs the "Green Bay Packers of college football." As Coach Hill often states, Fresno State is not only representing Fresno, its representing the entire Valley."The people of this Valley are of vital importance to the success of this football program," said Hill. "They help us fund the program, they give us unparalleled support, and they are going to be the big reason we take this program to a level where we are consistently in the Top 25."Hill has also shown his commitment to the Valley in recruiting -- 45 of the Bulldogs' 104 players (43 percent) are from the San Joaquin Valley.

The Fresno State Bulldogs have predominately "cardinal red" uniforms with blue and white as secondary colors. They also have a green V on the back of their helmets, for the San Joaquin Valley, a large agricultural area in which the school is located.

Four: Fresno State, Mississippi State, Georgia and Louisiana Tech. Yale is also the Bulldogs, but is not technically considered Division 1A, since the Ivy League prohibits its football teams from participating in Bowl games. Gonzaga also has the Bulldog as a mascot, but does not have a football team, so cannot be considered Division 1A.
Fresno State has played football in the Western Athletic Conference since 1992 and, through the 2009 season, has shared three WAC football championships (1992 with BYU and Hawaii, 1993 with BYU and Wyoming, and 1999 with TCU and Hawaii). They have not won the WAC championship outright.
Through the 2010 season, no.
I looked this up on the CSUF site and they stated that in 1921 the newspaper the Fresno Republican refered to the college as the "bulldogs." This was the only reference I could find on the logo. As with many things in life the logo may have come from this small source.
