Bowl and Conference Implications

Both teams are out of the bowl hunt. Fresno State is going to finish last in the West no matter what, but San Jose State could finish tied for third with a win.

What’s Going To Happen?

How fast can Jeff Tedford take over?

The new Fresno State head coach won’t be there for a little longer, but the Bulldog offense desperate needs him as soon as possible. With just 13 points in the last two games, and a team that averages just 337 yards a game, it needs to find its pop and something positive in its last game of an awful, awful season.

With no wins over an FBS team, Fresno State is overdue for a fun moment. It came close in the 14-13 loss to Hawaii, and now it needs to crank it up against a San Jose State team that’s having problems of its own.

The Spartans have an offense – scoring 30 points or more in each of the last three games, starting to get moving way too late – but the defense is having a nightmare of a time coming up with a real stop.

If the Fresno State running game was ever going to get moving, this would be it.

The Spartan defensive front has hit the skids just as the offense side started to get going, but to be fair, that coincided with playing against the stars of the Mountain West – San Diego State, Boise State and Air Force.

Can Fresno State linebacker/running back Josh Hokit build off the big rushing performance against Hawaii to carry the team against the awful San Jose State defense?

At home, the Bulldogs won’t be so sloppy, they’ll put together a sharp performance for a few quarters, and the ground game will do just enough to go into the new era with a positive.
