Game of the Week - San Jose State at Army

A harder decision this week. Some good games in the conference.

First, Colorado State/Fresno State was a very entertaining game where the Rams pulled off the upset. The implications of the loss for the Bulldogs could mean that the defending MWC champs might actually have a losing season, sitting at 3-4 with games @Hawaii, Utah State, @San Diego State, Nevada, and @San Jose State remaining.

Second, the San Diego State/UNLV game was a close game where the Rebels gave the Aztecs a real scare. A missed 42 yard field goal by UNLV with under a minute left was the only reason this game did not go into overtime. That means, the Aztecs escaped with a win. As for UNLV, Tony Sanchez and the Rebels really could’ve used that win.

That said, my game of the week nomination goes to San Jose State/Army. First off, San Jose State has 3 non-conference wins this season. Brent Brennan had 3 wins in his first two seasons at San Jose State - combined. It was a very good game with contrasting styles as Army had over 300 yards and 3 TD’s on the ground while San Jose State had over 300 yards and 3 TD’s in the air. Also, San Jose State is 4-4 and has a chance to be 6-6. In a season where Fresno State might not even be 6-6. The Spartans will play meaningful games in November, and could possibly make a bowl game. Lastly, this catch just put this game over the top for me as game of the week.

Let us know which game you thought was the Game of the Week in Week Nine.
