Utah State vs San Jose State Game Preview
Why Utah State Will Win
Utah State is flying a bit under the Mountain West radar, but it’s leading the Mountain Division with three straight conference wins and with a chance to play for the conference title if it can win out.
The offense has been great on third downs, the downfield passing game has been terrific, and the production keeps on coming with 473 yards per game. San Jose State’s offense doesn’t have the pop or firepower to keep up the pace.
Logan Bonner is getting better and better. The former Arkansas State quarterback who followed Blake Anderson to Logan was good throughout the season, but he took things up a notch hitting over 70% of his passes for 720 yards and eight touchdowns over the last two games against Hawaii and New Mexico State.
Why San Jose State Will Win
San Jose State gave Nevada a big push in a 27-24 loss last week.
The offense got QB Nick Starkel back, and it showed with 264 yards and three scores as the offense was able to hang around just enough to make it close.
The passing attack can’t bomb away if this gets crazy, but the offensive line is decent in pass protection and should give Starkel time to work. Utah State’s pass defense has struggled for most of the year, allowing over 200 yards in every game but two, and allowed over 900 yards in the last three games. But …
What’s Going To Happen
Utah State has proved it can win close games when the other side is throwing well.
The team has managed to do just fine in shootout wins over Air Force, and Colorado State, and North Dakota. It’s about to get into a back-and-forth fight that’s a whole lot of fun, and it’ll take one big step closer to winning the Mountain Division with Wyoming and New Mexico to follow.
