That game yesterday was everything that I wanted and it delivered. It was everything SJSU needed to show the world that they are still a team that can win big games.
What we got was a thrilling, exhilarating game like I’ve never seen before. It was a game of two halves. It was the unstoppable offenses in the first half and the clutch defensive stops in the second half.
Needing to win that game (and break the three-game losing streak) to make it back to a bowl game was a big deal for the program. SJSU needed it so bad and taking out #16 ranked and undefeated Fresno State to do it in the process makes it so sweet.
More importantly, it gives the program credibility. The school needed back to back bowl appearances. The program needed to show that they are a program worth considering in the future for recruits. Most of all, it needed to give a school that isn’t known for football something to be proud of.
It was perfect that David Fales proved once again why he’s one of the top quarterbacks in college football and on Senior Day, he gave us a performance of a lifetime.
It was that good. It was that fun. It was so memorable. And the season rolls on for one more game.
