San Jose State Spartans San Jose State isn't far removed from being one of the laughing stocks of the now defunct WAC. The potential had always been there though as SJSU is located next to the large metropolises of Oakland and San Francisco and is in the talent rich state of California. Things are different now. San Jose State has a fresh look and a team moving the right direction. The Spartans just missed out on the final WAC title due to a loss to fellow MWC newcomer Utah State, but their record of 11-2 is a huge improvement over their 2010 record of 1-12. A big part of that is thanks to JUCO transfer QB David Fales. He came in and was able to lead the Spartans to their best season in over 20 years and looks to continue that success in the 2013 season in the much tougher Mountain West Conference. At this level though, a top QB is enough to make you competitive week in and week out and maij17 will be looking to take advantage of that as he looks to continue the progress that San Jose State has been building.
