San Jose State (1-1) will be looking for a measure of revenge when it hosts Western Michigan (1-2) this week. Western Michigan won the first-ever meeting between these schools last year, 23-3, in Michigan. They are similar teams, and still looking to get the season on the right track. While they are not in the same conference, this game could help the winner get going in the right direction. 

Western Michigan has lost to two ranked teams by convincing scores, sandwiched between a close win against Ball State on the road. San Jose State is coming off a close loss at Auburn after winning its opener. 

San Jose State is led by Chevan Cardeiro who has passed for 514 yards in two games, completing 56 percent of his passes. He has thrown for one touchdown with no interceptions. The Spartans have yet to find their running game, managing 103 yards over two games and averaging 1.8 yards per run. Elijah Cooks leads the receivers with 169 yards on 10 receptions. The Spartans have only one sack of a quarterback over two games, but the defense has four interceptions to its credit.

Western Michigan has a more balanced offense, averaging 184 yards passing and 132 rushing. The Broncos are giving up 33 points per game, but most of those points were scored by two ranked teams.

Jack Salopek has passed for 522 yards, with one touchdown and four interceptions over three games. Sean Tyler has run for 189 yards and Darius Jefferson has run for 132 yards with five touchdowns between them.

Western Michigan Broncos +7

The Broncos are playing on the road and will have a good chance of pulling out the upset as the underdog. However, the long flight and the fact that the Broncos defense is giving up quite a few points plays against the Broncos in this game here and that is what helps the Spartans pick up the win, but fail to cover. Final Score Prediction, San Jose State Spartans win 31-27.
