What’s the real San Jose State?
Is it the team that couldn’t move the ball against a bad Tulsa defense in the blowout opening week loss, or is it the one that blew up against a good Portland State team that should be a player in the FCS world?
At the very least, it has just enough to worry about for a Utah team that’s hardly been impressive, and now has a letdown moment coming with BYU in the rearview mirror and USC up next.
The Utes don’t have much pop to the running game with a thin backfield that hasn’t been able to provide the identity of last year, but the defense has more than picked up the slack, especially against pass so far.
With the nation’s best punting game so far, and with the defense that won’t let the Spartans get their speed backs in open spaces like they were against Portland State – on the way to 409 yards and six scores – Utah will control the field position battle and grind this out just enough to get through this without too much drama.
