San Jose State was one of the 5-7 teams that made it to a bowl game this season. San Jose State was not very good this year and really struggled on offense at times during the season. Tyler Ervin is a very good running back for San Jose State, and he will have to have a big day if they want to win. Georgia State ended the season on a four game winning streak and will come into this game with plenty of confidence. Georgia State has the 8th ranked passing attack in the nation and should be able to move the ball against the San Jose State defense. I expect Georgia State to win this game, but I will pick the points here.
