It’s a Mountain West showdown on Saturday night at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Two teams who are expected to finish near the bottom of the conference face off in this one, so this game might have a big impact on who finishes last in the conference.
The San Jose State Spartans come to town to take on the UNLV Rebels. The Spartans have won the last six games played between the two teams.
San Jose State Spartans
The San Jose Spartans are in the middle of a rebuild and it has shown with the results on the field.
They come into this game with a 1-4 record and the one win came against an FCS level school, and even in that game they didn’t look as dominant as they probably should have against that type of competition.
They have struggled on both sides of the football field, but especially on the defensive side of the ball. So far this season they are allowing 45.2 points per game which is 126th in all the country.
They have been getting torched through the air and on the ground, and that has led to such a horrific start for the team.
On the offensive side of the ball the biggest issue has been finding a rhythm and a guy to step up and make the big play when they need one.
To win this game the offense is going to need to step up in a big way, and play a lot better then they have so far this season.
With as bad as the defense has played this game is probably going to be a shootout, and the offense needs to find a way to keep up in this game if that is the case.
On the other side of this match up is the UNLV Rebels who have had a very weird season so far. They opened up the season by losing to an FCS level team, a game that combined for 83 points.
In their second game of the season they looked a lot better against Idaho coming out strong from the beginning and winning he game by a final score of 44-16.
In their last game they played Ohio State, and although they lost big losing by a final score of 54-21, they actually looked a lot better then most people expected then they would.
The quarterback for the Rebels is Armani Rogers who played well in the first two games, but then struggled big time against the Buckeyes defense.
He only threw for 88 yards and two interceptions before getting pulled. The biggest thing with him is he needs to play well by not turning the ball over.
If he continues to throw interceptions in this game, he will keep the Spartans in the game, and that might allow the opponents to pull the upset.
