The San Jose State Spartans and New Mexico Lobos face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at University Stadium.

Bob Davie is no longer in charge of New Mexico, rather it’s Danny Gonzales who should bring a new emphasis with him. It might take a while for Gonzales to get his people in pace, but once they are, this is going to be a team that has a focus on defense. Last season New Mexico put up over 400 yards a game but they had issues scoring touchdowns, and they need to do a better job of finishing the plays. Who is going to be under center is still a question, but they have a couple of solid options. Last season New Mexico had the second-worst defense in all of college football but just getting this staff in should improve that a bit. New Mexico was suppose to already have a game under their belt, but it was cancelled because of COVID,

San Jose State have played one game so far this year against Air Force and the defense found a lot of success in this game giving up only six points, and that led to the victory. San Jose State is a pass first team, and as the season goes on, getting more production out of the running game will probably be a key. Quarterback Nick Starkel looked good in Game 1 throwing for 226 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. In this game if San Jose State wants to have success they need to get out to a fast start and they need the offense to be more balanced with more running.

The under is 8-3 in San Jose State’s last 11 games as a favorite. San Jose State is 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games overall. New Mexico is 5-17 against the spread in their last 22 conference games. The under is 9-3 in New Mexico’s last 12 games played in October. 

San Jose State’s defense looked good in the first game and that type of play will continue in this game against New Mexico. If that is enough to cover the spread is still to be seen, but it will be enough to keep this game under the posted total.
