Why San Jose State Will Win

San Jose State will look to use Sunday’s blowout loss as momentum to down Southern Utah on Sunday. Though San Jose State has struggled in recent seasons, the Spartans had a respectable five-win improvement last year and a new head coach, Jean Prioleau (former Colorado assistant). Southern Utah has lost their last two games, 90-69 to Boise State and 99-82 to Oregon State. San Jose State forward Ryan Welage could present some problems for the Southern Utah front court, especially after scoring a career-high 30 points in the Spartans’ season opener. If Welage shows up, San Jose State will be a tough opponent.
