The San Jose State Spartans and Fresno State Bulldogs face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Bulldog Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was Fresno State that secured the 40-9 victory. 

Fresno State comes into this game with a 1-4 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Boise State, the offense scored 20 points, but the defense gave up 40 points, which led to the defeat. Fresno State was outscored 20-3 in the second half, and they need to play a more complete game here. Logan Fife completed 14 of his 25 passes for 134 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. Fresno State is averaging 23.6 points while their defense is giving up 29.2 points per game. Starting quarterback Jake Haener is still dealing a high ankle sprain and is still out. 

On the other side of this matchup is San Jose State who sit with a 4-1 record overall and they are coming off another big win in their last game. San Jose State scored 40 points against UNLV and that was enough to secure the 33-point victory. Chevan Cordeiro completed 18 of his 27 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns. San Jose State is averaging 28.8 points while their defense is giving up 14 points per game. The defense is ranked 9th in the league, and it’s going to be important that the defense steps up. If the defense is good, San Jose State should have a strong game. 

San Jose State is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. Fresno State is 1-6 against the spread in their last seven home games. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings played between teh two teams. The road team is 3-0-1 against the spread in the last four meetings played between the two teams. 

San Jose State has one of the best defenses in college football and they are going to lockdown the offense of Fresno State in this game. Fresno State scored 20 points in the last game, and they are going to struggle to even score that many here. I expect Fresno State will finish around 10 points, and San Jose State will cover the spread.
