Cal State Fullerton's football team has certainly taken a beating, both physically and in the standings, this season. Its hopes of defending the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. title are all but dashed, and only a miracle comeback can save the Titans from being thrust back into obscurity after a long, difficult climb to recognition.
Fullerton needs several things these days . . . like maybe a healthy quarterback, a touchdown once in awhile and about a half-dozen defensive replacements.
But it would seem that today's opponent, New Mexico State, which has staggered to a 1-7 overall record and a 0-5 conference mark, is in more trouble than the Titans.
But a closer look indicates that New Mexico State is indeed a team on the way up. And, for that matter, a team very capable of winning its first conference game today at Santa Ana Stadium.
