Tonight San Jose State takes on the Navy Midshipmen. This is a must win for the Spartans. Win and the Spartans have a good shot at being selected for a bowl game regardless of the result of their contest with Fresno State next week. A loss and the Spartans likely will not go bowling unless they pull off a major upset against the Bulldogs. This is a chance the Spartans do not want to take.
Standing in the Spartans’ way is a Navy team that runs the ball extremely well. This has been San Jose State’s Achilles Heel on defense and could be the final blow to their season if they don’t improve. The offense for San Jose State must also control the clock and get in the end zone. Settling for field goals is a dangerous habit that already cost San Jose State a game against San Diego State earlier in the year. A win against Navy would certainly help the confidence of a Spartan team that is desperate for a victory.
