Western Michigan vs San Jose State Game Preview
Why Western Michigan Will Win
The Broncos should be a bit more into a groove – at least if all goes according to plan.
They’ll coming off the rough loss to Pitt, but they’ve been able to spread out their first three games a bit. San Jose State might be rested, but they haven’t played in two weeks since the loss at Auburn.
The Spartan running game hasn’t worked yet, the offensive front hasn’t generated a push, and Western Michigan should be able to take advantage of it. This is a far better Bronco team than it’s been able to show so far – playing Pitt and Michigan State matters.
Why San Jose State Will Win
Western Michigan hasn’t shown much so far.
The downfield passing game isn’t there like it’s supposed to be, the defense struggled against Ball State even more than it did against the Power Five teams, and the pass rush isn’t there to take advantage of the problems on the Spartan offensive front.

What’s Going To Happen
The game starts at 9:30 pm Kalamazoo time.
It’s the late night game of the week that fits right into San Jose State’s wheelhouse time-wise.

It’ll be a tight game, but it’ll be interesting. The Spartans will win the mistake battle in a low-scoring fight that goes down to the final drives.
