The San Jose State Spartans will look to remain undefeated after a surprising 28-17 win over San Diego State as 10-point underdogs to improve to 3-0 on the year. Nick Starkel has thrown for 706 yards, 7 touchdowns and an interception on 73.4% passing while Nick Nash has 183 passing yards, 2 touchdowns and a pick on 63% passing.

UNLV is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. San Jose State is 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 conference games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. UNLV is 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
Usually San Jose State’s not a team I associate with a double-digit spread of this size and it’s a letdown spot after playing San Diego State tough and winning outright. However, the Spartans just look like a different team with Nick Starkel at QB and it’s starting to remind me of the Spartan team that won 10 games a few years ago. The Rebels just appear lost right now and just can’t seem to do anything right and I think their struggles continue here. I’ll lay the points with San Jose State in this one.
