The San Jose State Spartans and UNLV Rebels do battle Friday in MWC week 6 college football action at CEFCU Stadium. The UNLV Rebels look to build on their 3-game winning streak. The San Jose State Spartans look to build on their 3-1 record.

The UNLV Rebels have lost 6 of their last 8 road games. Doug Brumfield is completing 70.5 percent of his passes for 1,223 yards, 8 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Ricky White and Kyle Williams have combined for 595 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Jeff Weimer has 16 receptions.

Elijah Cooks and Justin Lockhart have combined for 586 receiving yards and 1 touchdown, while Charles Ross has 14 receptions.

Defensively, San Jose State is allowing 15.8 points and 306.8 yards per game. Kyle Harmon leads the San Jose State Spartans with 34 tackles, Cade Hall has 1.5 sacks and Tre Jenkins has 1 interception.

The Rebels are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Spartans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 8-3 in Rebels last 11 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Spartans last 5 games overall. The Rebels are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings in San Jose State and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings.

Don’t look now, but the UNLV Rebels are playing good winning football and their offense is top-30 in the country in scoring. The San Jose State Spartans are playing decent as well, and they went toe-to-toe with Auburn, but their offense has issues finishing drives and their defense has issues stopping the run. This line is a little confusing, as you can make a strong argument UNLV is the better team. I’ll grab the points with the Rebels, as I wouldn’t be shocked they win this game outright.
