The Spartans got off to a winning start in 2013, shutting out the Sacramento State Hornets 24-0. Yes, it is only Sac State, but a win is a win. Quarterback David Fales completed 50% of his passes on his way to a 200 plus passing yard night. His favorite target was Wideout Chandler Jones, who had 8 receptions and over 100 yards receiving.
Oddly enough, Sacramento State actually had more first downs, 18, than the Spartans, 15. San Jose State will have to play better based on this stat alone if they are to have even a puncher’s chance against the #5 ranked Stanford Cardinal. The showdown in Palo Alto is Saturday at 8PM.
