What to Know

The San Diego State Aztecs are 6-1 against the San Jose State Spartans since October of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. San Diego State and SJSU will face off in a Mountain West battle at 10:30 p.m. ET at Snapdragon Stadium. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close matchup.

Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Aztecs beat the UNLV Rebels 14-10 last week. No one had a standout game offensively for San Diego State, but they got scores from WR Jesse Matthews and TE Mark Redman.

San Diego State's defense was a presence, as it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. The picks came courtesy of CB Dallas Branch and CB Dez Malone.

Meanwhile, SJSU had a touchdown and change to spare in a 28-16 victory over the Colorado State Rams last week. It was another big night for the Spartans' RB Kairee Robinson, who punched in two rushing touchdowns.

The Aztecs are now 5-4 while SJSU sits at 6-2. A couple stats to keep an eye on: San Diego State enters the game having picked the ball off ten times, good for 22nd in the nation. But SJSU comes into the contest boasting the fewest thrown interceptions in the nation at two. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
