San Jose State (0-6) vs. San Diego State (5-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
It might not always be a thing of beauty, but San Diego State keeps rolling right along with five straight wins after opening up the season with a loss at Stanford. Each of the last four games have been by a touchdown or less, but they’re wins.
It helps to have one of the nation’s best defenses including a run D that’s not allowing a thing.
The offense might be sputtering with the backups in the backfield, but the defense front has been able to hold its own, allowing just 2.5 yards per carry and only giving up more than 100 yards twice. Last week, Air Force went off for over 200 yards, but that’s Air Force – it doesn’t throw all that well.
San Jose State hasn’t been totally miserable for an 0-6 team – at least at times.
Last year it suffered an all-timer of a meltdown in the second half of the loss to Army – fumbling the ball away over, and over, and over again in the blowout – and it has to go against the killer Aztec defensive front with the nation’s worst rushing attack.
The Spartans haven’t rushed for more than 50 yards against an FBS team this season, and it’s averaging just 1.6 yards per carry.
SDSU doesn’t crank up the offense enough to make this a brutal blowout, and the SJSU passing game is just strong enough to put a few points on the board, but be shocked if the Aztecs aren’t in total control from the start.
