San Jose, meanwhile, lost two of its last five games (35-31 to Utah State Aggies and 43-27 vs San Diego State Aztecs). They lost back-to-back games, but that losing streak was snapped in their last game, when they defeated Hawai’ i Rainbow Warriors at home.
Going by the numbers, they total 27.5 points per game on average, while allowing few points, 20.3. In yards, they total 356.4, with 263.9 passing and 92.5 rushing; while averaging 332.5 total yards allowed, with 210.4 passing and 122.1 rushing.
Chevan Cordeiro is their quarterback and their player to watch, as the rookie is having a good season.
It will be a very balanced match, but the Spartans’ defensive line has been working brilliantly, while on offense the two have very similar averages. For this reason, at JefeBet we believe that San Jose State Spartans will win.
Prediction: San Jose State wins by less than 10 points.
