The San José State Spartans (3-1, 1-0 MWC) took down the Wyoming Cowboys (3-3, 1-1 MWC), 33-16, Saturday night in Laramie.
The win for the Spartans marks the third consecutive season that SJSU has won the Mountain West Conference opener.
I watched the game on record last night, and this was the best game of the season for the offense in my opinion.
The offensive unit had the ball for 36:52 in the time of possession game, while having 456 yards of total offense, converting 6-of-15 (40%) of the 3rd down conversions and went 1-for-1 on 4th down conversions.
The time of possession and total yards marked a season high in both categories on the season.
Quarterback Chevan Cordeiro completed 21-of-37 passes for 314 yards and one touchdown with a QB Rating of 68.9. Cordeiro also ran for two touchdowns and had 24 rushing yards.
Senior running back Kairee Robinson had a career-high 102 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown on 20 carries (5.1 avg.).
Senior wide receiver Elijah Cooks had eight receptions for 177 yards (22.1 avg). Sophomore Charles Ross had six receptions for 66 yards (11.0 avg).
It was a big win at a place that’s tough to win at. The Spartans have a very realistic chance of playing for the Mountain West Conference Championship for the first time since 2020.
The Spartans will host the UNLV Rebels (4-1, 2-0 MWC) at CEFCU Stadium in San Jose, California on Friday, October 7th. Kickoff is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. (CT)/7:30 p.m. (PT) and will be nationally televised on CBS Sports Network (CBSSN).
