Utah State vs San Jose State. Utah got the win it really, really wished to have — with a more dominant win over BYU than the score made it seem. The offense hasn’t been good, and there are plenty of stuff before beginning the Pac-12 year at Arizona, to exercise.

Utah State vs San Jose State
Date: Saturday, September 23,
Time: 07:30 PM ET
Venue: Spartan Stadium, San Jose, California
San Jose State had the bad luck of confronting a Texas group searching for something positive after the Maryland debacle. Mountain West play starts next week but first, it ought to generate more of a crime, and it has to hold up defensively for a full four quarters.
Both teams might be attempting to get their footing in various ways, and along the way, in case San Jose State makes this type of struggle in any way, be happy it’s not a blowout.

Since the Utah State Aggies take on the San Jose State Spartans we’ve got some Mountain West conference action on the gridiron in week 4.
The Utah State Aggies will look to return to .500 after falling to 1-2 thanks to a 46-10 loss to Wake Forest in their last outing. Jordan Love threw for 171 yards and a touchdown on 6 of 13 passing, while Kent Myers proceeded for only 54 yards on 9 of 23 throughout the atmosphere. Eltoro Allen directed the Aggies putrid ground attack with 20 yards on 13 carries, as Utah State combined for 42 rushing yards on 31 carries. Gerold Bright and Zach Van Leeuwen each logged 77 yards, using Van Leeuwen while Bright reception went for a touchdown, carrying in a set of passes. Ron’Quavion Tarver hauled into a team-high 5 passes for 35 yards in the loss. An Ian Togiai sofa was the lone highlight at a disappointing outing for its Utah State defense, letting 588 yards of total crime.
The San Jose State Spartans will look to bounce back and begin conference play with a win after falling back-to-back excursions, including a loss to Utah last time out. While DeJon Packer led the Spartans ground game with 28 yards on 6 carries, while his team-high 9 conveys switched into 25 metres Josh Love threw for 183 yards and a touchdown on 13 of 25 passing. While JaQuan Blackwell hauled in 4 balls, Bailey Gaither obtained the offensive game ball for SJSU, catching 8 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, an Ethan Aguayo sack and fumble recovery would be the highlights for the Spartans as San Jose State permitted Utah to rack up 501 yards of total offense.
Utah State is currently 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 conference matches although the over is total. Utah State is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Why anyone would place their money is beyond me. However, if forced to choose a side, Utah State, despite getting success in this matchup, have fought on the road, while the Spartans have thrived at home, so I’ll take the free field target with the home puppy and San Jose State.
