The San Jose State Spartans (3 - 2, 1 - 1 CONF) are on the road this week as they take on the Nevada Wolf Pack (3 - 2, 0 - 1 CONF). Nevada will be hosting this game at the Mackay Stadium in Reno, NV. San Jose State comes into this game fresh off of a victory over New Mexico while Nevada is looking to rebound from an embarrassing loss to Hawaii.
San Jose State comes into this matchup with a team that can push the ball downfield. San Jose State is scoring 28 PPG on offense while dealing 310 passing yards per game. QB Josh Love (1,418 yards, 7 TDs) will be our player to highlight in this game. If Love can find his rhythm early, the Spartans might be able to pull away. San Jose State is surrendering just 28 PPG to opposing teams on defense.
The Nevada Wolf Pack will hope that their home crowd can push them in this game. Nevada has only lost two games this year, but in both matchups they were absolutely drubbed. Nevada is scoring just 20 PPG on offense while surrendering 39 PPG to opposing teams on defense. Nevada doesn't have an offense that can put points on the board, so QB Carson Strong (729 yards, 3 TDs) will have to be perfect in order to keep Nevada close.
