What you need to know about Western Michigan

Western Michigan enters this road competition with a 34-13 loss to No. 23 Pittsburgh. This was the second of two previous losses to ranked teams, including a nearly identical 35-13 loss to No. 15 Michigan State in Week 1. WMU’s offense was out of sync, managing just 180 yards against the Panthers. Quarterback Jack Salopek made a meager 6 of 18 passes for 99 yards and three interceptions. The Broncos weren’t faring much better on the ground, rushing for 50 yards on 29 attempts.

What you need to know about the state of San Jose

The Spartans enter this Saturday’s matchup after recovering from a bye week in the preseason. So far, both games have been decided by possession; a 4-point win over FCS Portland State and an 8-point loss at Auburn. The Spartans are led by Hawaii transfer QB Chevan Cordeiro, who was responsible for one touchdown in the air and two on the ground. Cordeiro has passed nearly 260 yards per game, but his accuracy is less than 60 percent.

San Jose State has struggled in the rushing game, averaging under two yards per rush attempt and just 103 yards in two games. For the Spartans to be successful on Saturday night, they need to run the ball effectively. Western Michigan ranks among the worst-managed defenses in the country (197 yards per game). When the two teams met last year, the Spartans were held for 60 yards on 30 attempts and lost.
