We continue Week 8 with a battle in California.

San Diego State is taking on San Jose State in a matchup that has the Aztecs as a big 23-point favorite and in all likelihood should just run the ball at will against a Spartans rush defense that gives up 228 yards per game while the Aztecs rush for 246 yards.

If San Jose State is going to keep this game close they need to keep quarterback Kenny Potter upright and limit his sacks. Also, the Aztecs pass defense is vulnerable so there is a good chance that San Jose State could move the ball a bit during this game in the air.
