San Jose State vs Fresno State Game Preview
Why San Jose State Will Win
The Spartans just flexed their muscles a little bit.
They were good in wins over Western Michigan and Wyoming, and then UNLV came into town. Beating the Rebels might not seem like that big of a deal, but they were playing well, they wanted to prove a point, and …
San Jose State won 40-7. It ran well, threw well, and the defense stuffed everything.
Razor sharp with just one turnover so far this year and with penalties not a problem, they’re holding up great defensively, the secondary has been wonderful, and the offense manages to do what’s needed to stay ahead after getting a little momentum.
Fresno State QB Jake Haener has been out, the Bulldog offense has stalled ever since, and …
Why Fresno State Will Win
The team is better than this.
It still has yet to beat an FBS team this season, and losing Haener didn’t help, but there’s still talent across the board.
For all of the issues, turnovers aren’t a huge problem, the defense is starting to force a few more big plays, and being back at home should matter.
At USC, then all the way across the country to UConn, then back to Boise State. There hasn’t been a game in Fresno since the crushing late loss to Oregon State on September 10th.

What’s Going To Happen
Fresno State will have a hard time stopping Chevan Cordeiro.
The former Hawaii quarterback brought his experience and playmaking ability to the Spartans, and so far he’s been the best player in the Mountain West.
He ran for two scores in each of the last two games and is good enough as a passer. He hasn’t been accurate enough and he’s not amazing at moving the chains on third downs, but he has yet to throw a pick and he’s good for at least 250 yards in this against the Fresno State secondary.
The Bulldogs will be better than they’ve been, but that won’t be good enough. San Jose State is playing too well and Fresno State isn’t.
