What to Know

The San Jose State Spartans and the Colorado State Rams are set to square off in a Mountain West matchup at 10:30 p.m. ET Nov. 5 at CEFCU Stadium. The Spartans have a defense that allows only 16.43 points per game, so Colorado State's offense will have their work cut out for them.

SJSU was able to grind out a solid win over the Nevada Wolf Pack last week, winning 35-28. SJSU relied on the efforts of RB Kairee Robinson, who punched in two rushing touchdowns, and QB Chevan Cordeiro, who passed for two TDs and 340 yards on 45 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. SJSU's victory came on a five-yard rush from Robinson with only 1:16 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, the night started off rough for Colorado State last week, and it ended that way, too. They played a contest they are hoping to forget as they lost a 49-10 blowout to the Boise State Broncos. The last quarter was a mere formality since it was already 49-10 by the third quarter. QB Clay Millen wasn't much of a difference maker for the Rams; Millen passed for only 161 yards on 20 attempts.

The Spartans are the favorite in this one, with an expected 24-point margin of victory. There could be an interesting gambling play in this one, as they have done quite well against the spread at home this season while Colorado State have struggled against the spread on the road.

SJSU ended up a good deal behind Colorado State when they played when the two teams previously met in October of last year, losing 32-14. Maybe SJSU will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
