Fresno State ends San Jose State’s season

SAN JOSE – Battle for the Valley Trophy was not much of a competition as San Jose State tasted defeat one last time on Thanksgiving Day, 40-9, against rival Fresno State.

The Spartans (5-7, 3-5 Mountain West) failed to qualify for a bowl match in the finals of the regular season after a second round in a row at CEFCU Stadium in front of 15,323 fans.

Last year’s Mountain West title and perfect regular season must seem like a mirage after San Jose State finished with a record identical to its pre-pandemic 2019 campaign.

The Spartans were trailing 23-9 at the break after setting up field goals by Matt Mercurio during three trips in the red zone and never establishing any momentum in the attack. San Jose State QB Nick Starkel – 19-of-42 for 260 yards – and his likely successor Nick Nash lost every fumble in the first half as the turnover plagued the team to the end.
