The San Jose State Spartans are the better team, but they’ve had issues on the road this season and their offense is well below average with a ground game that has zero success. The San Diego State Aztecs have issues offensively of their own, but they’re still a respectable team defensively that grinds games down and find ways to win, especially at home. It feels like San Diego State is getting slept on a bit in this spot. It’s not always pretty, but the Aztecs find ways to win games. Give me the home dog.
