Fresno State vs. San Jose State: Halftime Update

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

If you like offense, you haven't been disappointed by the pyrotechnics in San Jose.

The Bulldogs and the Spartans both have plenty on the line in this rendition of their long time rivalry, and the two best quarterbacks in the conference have both brought their A-plus game this afternoon.

San Jose State has a 42-41 lead over Fresno State at the half, and it has been the offenses that have set the breakneck pace. Derek Carr is 22-of-29 with 354 yards and six touchdowns, while SJSU'S David Fales is 27-of-32 with 451 yards and six scores of his own. The conference's best wide receivers have been the main beneficiaries, as well: Davante Adams has eight catches for 157 yards and three touchdowns, and Chandler Jones has 115 yards and three TD grabs.

The Spartans owe their advantage to a blocked extra point attempt and a Tyler Winston touchdown catch in which appeared to step out of bounds. Kyrie Wilson and Curtis Riley have also forced critical fumbles that have led directly to 14 Fresno points.

Injuries of note include Fresno receiver Josh Harper, who suffered a leg injury on his touchdown catch in the first quarter, San Jose defensive back Dasheon Frierson and running back Jarrod Lawson.
