It’s Monday and we are back at it following the weekend with another slew of football games. First and foremost, congratulations to the San Jose Spartans!!! Check out our links below and our original content coming this week.

Spartans continue their magical season, are now conference champs.

San Jose State looked in control from the get-go, executing their game plan on both sides of the ball. While many of their red-zone drives stalled with field goals, their defense more than made up for it. They completely shut down the run and generated a constant pass-rush that contained the passing game from sustaining too many drives. It’s been an amazing season for the Spartans and this gives them some hardware to commemorate the effort.

Falcons lose the rivalry game, trophy.

It all came down to 4th and goal on the 1 yard line. Army converted, took the lead and the Commander In Chief Trophy right out of the talons of the Falcons. It was a great game but did not have the desired result. It’s just been that kind of year.

The top Nevada recruit from this century.

This is a cool article by Chris Murray. He looks at every Nevada recruiting class from 2000 until 2020 and looks at the recruit who had the best Wolf Pack career. There are a lot of talented names on this list and it’s worth the look even if you aren’t a Nevada fan.

The Air Force and Army game turns 50!

Maile is all class.
