Before the start of the season, the Thunderbirds’ nonleague schedule appeared as treacherous as any in the Big Sky Conference. It’s turned out that way. Southern Utah travels to Fresno State on Saturday night in search of its first victory, following losses to Nevada (28-19), No. 3-ranked Southeastern Louisiana (41-14) and 10th-ranked South Dakota State (26-6).
