Every single team in major college football will have kicked off its season, and many of those teams will have played two games by the time the Cardinal kick it off for the first time this year, and that really might not play into their hands all that much. San Jose State has not only played a game, but it has garnered a lot of confidence as well over the course of the last several days, as this whole preseason, the team has been hyped as one of the potential upset candidates in the Mountain West. All that being said, there’s a good chance that the Spartans could be in for a second straight upset bid of Stanford this year.
Remember that last season, Stanford was really pushed over the course of the whole game by QB David Fales and company. Fales only completed half of his passes last week, and that was a huge drop off for a man that completed over 70% of his passes last season and was one of the most efficient signal callers in the land. In the end, if Fales and the Spartans can keep the ball moving offensively, there is going to be a real chance to at least hang around in this game when push comes to shove. We love what Stanford is bringing to the table defensively this year, and life is going to be very, very difficult on San Jose State as a result, but we still think that this is a cover waiting to happen for the Mountain West reps.
