PICK: I’m sticking with Fresno State here. Friday’s game was pretty close initially; San Jose State even had a 45-42 lead at halftime. The Bulldogs controlled the game after that however, carrying a 37-19 edge the rest of the way. A 43-point chunk of the Spartans’ production came from just two players in that game, and San Jose State is going to need more production from their role-players if they want to be competitive in this one.
