Fresno State @ San Jose State
Current record: Fresno State 8-3; San Jose State 5-6
What to know
The Fresno State Bulldogs have enjoyed comfort at home their last two games, but now they have to hit the streets. Fresno State and San Jose State Spartans will go head-to-head in a battle in Mountain West at 3:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at CEFCU Stadium. The Bulldogs are probably still feeling good after a big win, while SJSU will be looking to regain its footing.
Last week, Fresno State ran around New Mexico Lobos, and the extra distance (399 yards versus 196 yards) paid off. Things went the way of Fresno State against New Mexico as they started with a 34-7 win. The game was pretty much decided by the first half, when the score reached 24. Fresno State QB Jake Haener was wearing it when he passed three TDs and 300 yards in 31 tries.
Meanwhile, Sparta may not have won anyway, but with a 95-yard loss on penalties, they actually shot themselves in the foot last week. Their painful 48-17 loss to the Utah State Aggies will likely stick with them for a while. QB Nick Starkel had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: in addition to failing to make a single touch, he also threw an interception and a clearance from just 138 yards away. via.
The Bulldogs are the favorites in this matchup, with an expected win rate of 7.5 points. The odds are favorable for them against the road spread this season, even if it’s generally tough skiing. They are 4-1 ATS in away games but only 6-4 in all.
Fresno State is currently 8-3 while Sparta sits at 5-6. Two stats to keep in mind while watching: Fresno State is 197th worst nationally in interceptions thrown in, having thrown 10 during the season. SJSU is on par with them all: they are stumbling over the 197th most interceptions in the nation, having thrown ten during the season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
