What you need to know about San Jose State 

San Jose State turned heads by beating an SEC squad, Arkansas, on the road early last season. But the rest of the campaign featured few highlights as the Spartans finished 5-7, including losing five of their last seven games. They did, however, finish the season on a high note by knocking off Fresno State 17-16 in the season finale. 

Arkansas transfer quarterback Nick Starkel is in the mix at quarterback and he’ll compete with Nick Nash. Having Tre Walker at receiver will be a big boost for either QB. Walker heads into his senior year coming off a strong 2019 campaign where he caught 79 passes for 1,161 yards.

What you need to know about Air Force

The Falcons have the advantage of having already played this year, and that one game was extremely impressive. The Falcons completed just four passes in their 40-7 win over Navy, but they moved the ball on the ground with ease. Eight players had at least one carry with Timothy Jackson (19-118) and Brad Roberts (10-103-1) leading the way.

Air Force’s defense was equally as impressive. It held Navy’s rushing attack to just 2.5 yards per carry and forced a pair of turnovers.
