San Jose State.
Arizona Bowl WINNER.
11:00 am pst.
Ball State vs. San Jose State -9.5: If ever a team was in “let down” mode it is Ball State following their 38-28 victory over Buffalo in the MAC Title game nearly two weeks ago. This is the matchup they will sorely miss their top running back, Caleb Huntley (opted out). Playing in the MAC, the Cardinals have not faced a defense as well-balanced or as ferocious as the Spartans (13th, 17.9 PPG allowed). On the other side of the ball, look for quarterback, Nick Starkel (1,906 yards passing, 65.1% completion rate, 16/4) and the top-20 SJ State passing attack to put up the best numbers of 2020 against the 119th ranked pass defense of Ball State. The Cardinals are 0-4 ATS the last four Bowl games. The Spartans are 6-0 ATS the last six in the month of December. Take San Jose State. Thank you.
