The San Jose State Spartans and UNLV Rebels face off on Thursday in a Mountain West college football showdown at Allegiant Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in 2020, San Jose State won 34-17. 

San Jose State sits with a 3-4 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against San Diego State, they almost pulled off the big upset, but they couldn’t get the job done in overtime, losing 19-13. The Spartans are averaging 19.4 points per game while their defense is giving up 23.1 points. The big question heading into this game for San Jose State is who will be under center. Nick Starkel is dealing with an arm injury and has missed the last four games. It’s unclear if he will be able to go, and if he can’t go, it will be Nick Nash who starts. Nash has thrown for 575 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is UNLV who is still looking for their first win of the season. In the last game against Utah State, they were competitive and actually led heading into the 4th quarter but they were outscored 7-0 and lost. UNLV is averaging 19.5 points while the defense is giving up 35 points per game. Under center for UNLV is Cameron Friel and on the season he has thrown for 619 yards, one touchdowns, and four interceptions. Running back Charles Williams is the best player for UNLV rushing for 625 yards and six touchdowns.
