    SAN JOSE – San Jose State has 11 days, and one game, to get itself into the postseason. Beat Fresno State on Thanksgiving Day, and it will be a happy holiday. Lose, and the season is over. “That’s a real thing for all of our seniors,” said San Jose State quarterback Nick Starkel, a sixth-year SEC transfer from Arkansas and Texas A&M. “It means a lot to us. I know that I’m not just speaking for myself when I say that this game really is the most important game that I’ve ever played in, just because of all the implications behind it.” The Spartans (5-6) could have locked up a bowl bid Saturday night. Instead, they suffered their most lopsided loss of the season — a 48-17 beatdown from Utah State in front of a crowd of 15,135 that was expecting to party after SJSU jumped out to a 14-0 lead. “I’m frustrated for our players, I’m frustrated for everybody at San Jose State because this was a really, really important game for us,” SJSU coach...

    Nate Starkel is coming off one of the most successful debut seasons by a San Jose State quarterback. Can the senior follow with a season that will vault him into the pantheon of Spartan signal-callers? SJSU has a rich quarterback tradition. So rich that Steve DeBerg, a member of the school’s Sports Hall of Fame who set nine school records in his two seasons with the Spartans before playing 21 seasons in the NFL, didn’t make our list of the five best QBs in school history. Entering this season, Starkel fits in more closely with one-year sensations such as Ralph Martini, Roger Proffitt and Chon Gallegos. Starkel hit the ground running after transferring from Arkansas. He led the Spartans to an unbeaten regular season  (7-0) and the Arizona Bowl against Ball State. Each of SJSU’s wins were by at least 10 points. Starkel passed for 2,174 yards and 17 touchdowns, completing 64.2 percent of his attempts in his debut season. He was intercepted only seven times. If Starkel can duplicate or improve on what he...
    San Jose State coach Brent Brennan has the Spartans on guard against taking Southern Utah lightly in Saturday’s season opener. Few would blame the Spartans for taking at least a peek beyond the Thunderbirds. SJSU has the bulk of last season’s breakthrough team returning, is a three-touchdown favorite over a rebuilding FCS opponent, and has that enticing trip to USC looming in Week 2. But Brennan need only point to 2018, an ill-fated 1-11 campaign that included a road game at a Pac-12 foe after what figured to be a tune-up at home against a FCS opponent in the season opener. The Spartans stumbled out of the gate in that one, a 44-38 loss to UC Davis, then couldn’t muster a single point the following week in a 31-0 loss at Washington State. SJSU finds itself in a similar predicament, at least scheduling-wise, to open this season. But Brennan says the only people looking past the opener are those outside the locker room. “I think you have to respect every opponent, it’s really that simple,” Brennan...
    GILROY, Calif. (KGO) -- Former 49ers Quarterback Jeff Garcia was a Gilroy kid that worked hard to earn himself a successful NFL career.And this week back in his hometown, he taught football skills to what could be the next generation of Bay Area star athletes.Under the hot Summer Gilroy skies, kids got a taste of fall at Kirigin Cellars in Gilroy, Calif."This is where it all began and I thought it was important time, especially coming out of what we just went through, to come back to Gilroy and do something special," Garcia said.The two-day football camp got kids on the field to learn from local and professional coaches, current and former SJSU football players and, of course, Garcia."He's really intense and he does a great job motivating all the kids around here," Camper Rio Cruz said. "He really motivated me." The Jeff Garcia Football Camp was back tucked away at Kirigin Cellars in Gilroy, but Im convinced you could hear @JeffGarciaJGFA from San Jose. Jeffs kids says when their dad hits the football field, its another level. But its...
    Former electric Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan died Tuesday at the age of 37, sending shockwaves through the college football world. Terry Brennan, Colt’s father, said the family took Colt to an emergency room Sunday night when they found him extremely intoxicated, but his son was turned away from a detox facility because no beds were available. Paramedics were called to a hotel Monday where Colt had been with other people. His father, Terry, told media that Colt ingested something laced with fentanyl and never regained consciousness. Before Colt’s high-flying career with the Rainbow Warriors under coach June Jones, he was recruited to play at San Jose State by his own cousin, current Spartans head coach Brent Brennan. Brent was the recruiting coordinator under legendary head coach Dick Tomey and offered Colt a scholarship. Instead, Colt walked on at Hawaii, so Brent and the Spartans had to play against him three times, losing all three WAC showdowns between 2005 and 2007. Brent remembered the games coaching against his cousin in a heartfelt poem he posted Wednesday...
    San Jose State football coach Brent Brennan was announced as the winner of the 2020 Lombardi Foundation national Coach of the Year award on Wednesday.Brennan, in his fourth season as the Spartans’ head coach, led SJSU to the Mountain West football championship with a 7-1 record. The Spartans were 7-0 during the regular season before losing to Ball State 34-13 in the Arizona Bowl. The conference title was SJSU’s first since 1991.Brennan beat out three other finalists — Indiana’s Tom Allen, Coastal Carolina’s Jamey Chadwell, and Iowa State’s Matt Campbell. This is a developing story. Updates will be provided when they become available.

    Contrary to what he said in his postgame news conference, San Jose State football coach Brent Brennan acknowledged Wednesday that he knew the Spartans would be missing some players and assistant coaches for their Arizona Bowl meeting with Ball State throughout the week leading up to the Dec. 31 game. Five starters, offensive coordinator Kevin McGiven and defensive coordinator Derrick Odum did not attend the game because of positive COVID-19 tests among the Spartans. SJSU lost to Ball State 34-13 for its only defeat in a 7-1 season. Brennan originally said he didn’t know he would be missing some players and coaches until “game time.” “It came over in bits and pieces throughout the week, not all at once,” Brennan said Wednesday, which was national letter-of-intent day for several NCAA sports, including football. The football program and SJSU administrators have taken heat for their lack of transparency about the COVID-19 outbreak that occurred after the Spartans decided to return to San Jose following a 34-20 romp past Boise State in the Mountain West championship game in...
    The San Jose State women’s basketball season is over. The school canceled the team’s remaining 14 games on Thursday, citing health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to SJSU’s news release, members of the women’s team will begin a county-required 10-day quarantine after returning to San Jose. The news release also noted that individuals who already were in quarantine or isolation will remain in Arizona until the quarantine or isolation is completed, just as members of the school’s football team did after losing to Ball State in the Arizona Bowl on Dec. 31.“This was an incredibly tough decision, but one that is in the best interest of the health and safety for our program’s student-athletes, coaches and staff,” SJSU athletic director Marie Tuite said in a statement. “San Jose State will maintain its current schedule of competition in other sports while continuing to implement the athletics department’s health and safety protocols. We look forward to watching the continued and exciting growth of our women’s basketball program in the 2021-22 season.” Related Articles ...
    San Jose State officials acknowledged Tuesday for the first time that members of the football team’s traveling party for last week’s Arizona Bowl are isolating in Tucson because of coronavirus protocols. Some athletic department staff members have stayed in Arizona to provide support, SJSU spokesperson Kenneth Mashinchi wrote Tuesday afternoon in an email to the Bay Area News Group. The rest of San Jose State’s traveling group returned home after the team’s 34-13 loss to Ball State on Dec. 31, which spoiled an undefeated season for the Mountain West champions. The Spartans took the field without at least six players — five of whom were starters — and two assistant coaches, but never clarified why they missed the game. San Jose State’s comments came in response to questions from the Bay Area News Group after the news organization obtained a campus memo alerting the SJSU community that more than one person who tested positive for coronavirus visited the school’s athletic facilities the day the football team flew to Arizona for its bowl game. “The Arizona Health...
    SAN JOSE — The San Jose State Spartans football team left town Sunday to write the final chapter of the greatest season in school history. While it’s true that the 1939 team went 13-0, those Spartans didn’t have to play amid a global pandemic that forced them to move six hours away just to have training camp. Or play their games in an empty stadium. Or play a home game in Hawaii and two more in Las Vegas. Or be the subject of controversy instead of celebration. “The hits just kept coming,” one of the team’s star players, defensive tackle Cade Hall, said Saturday. Hall was talking about the season, but he just as easily could have been talking about the past week. The Spartans survived all the hits this season, putting together a 7-0 record, winning the Mountain West championship game against conference kingpin Boise State and rising to No. 19 in the latest Associated Press poll. Only once in history has SJSU been ranked higher; the 1939 Spartans were 18th. And yet, when...
    San Jose State received letters of intent from 13 players Wednesday on the first day of the early signing period, and this group had a distinctly different look than previous classes under coach Brent Brennan. Only one of the 13 players is from the Bay Area, that being offensive lineman Kai Peterson-Davison from Marin Catholic High School in Kentfield. Brennan and his coaching staff have turned around the SJSU program by placing a heavy emphasis on Bay Area recruits, with about 35 players from Central Coast and North Coast section schools. Throw in another dozen players from the Sac-Joaquin Section (Sacramento/Stockton), and the Spartans have almost 50 players within a couple hours’ drive of the SJSU campus. Most of the 2021 class — at least the early portion — comes from the southern half of the state. Tight end Nathan Lewis is from Jesuit High in Carmichael, there are two players from Fresno and one from San Luis Obispo, and two from outside California. Nine of the newest Spartans will report on offense and four will...

    The San Jose State football team’s shot at a Mountain West championship game berth will come down to its final game against Nevada — and it’ll be in the Wolf Pack’s home state as the Spartans have moved operations to Las Vegas to dodge Santa Clara County restrictions on contact sports. San Jose State athletic director Marie Tutie said the Spartans’ experience navigating the obstacles to complete a season in the age of coronavirus has been taxing, but helpful in their move to Las Vegas. “It’s been a heavy lift, but we just look at the positives. Roll our sleeves up and no matter what curveball is thrown our way, we figure it out,” she said on a call with reporters Monday. “I will say it’s devastating not to be able to play our last few games in CEFCU Stadium, to say goodbye to our seniors.” The Spartans are one of three Mountain West teams, including Nevada, jousting for two spots in the championship game. As the lone undefeated teams, San Jose State and Boise State have...
    SAN JOSE — San Jose State sports administrators spent Monday canceling basketball games and trying to find a place for the school’s undefeated football team to practice and finish the rest of the Mountain West Conference season. Athletic director Marie Tuite said administrators would have a plan within the coming days for football and basketball in response to Santa Clara County’s tough new restrictions that limit sports team activities. The San Francisco 49ers announced Monday they would play their next two games in Arizona. The Spartans (4-0), who were off Monday, have little time to prepare for Hawaii (3-3) this weekend after having the past two games canceled because of COVID-19 issues. Coach Brent Brennan said Hawaii presents “an incredible challenge while we figure out where we are going to practice, where we are going to play. So there is no shortage of challenges for us to face and overcome.” Santa Clara County’s new COVID-19 restrictions went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday and will last until Dec. 21. The guidelines, announced Saturday, include a three-week ban...
    The San Jose State football team, boasting a 4-0 record for the first time in 65 years, is about to hit the big time. The Spartans’ game Saturday at Boise State will be televised by Fox, the first time since 2006 that SJSU has appeared on a non-cable network. It might be even better, and bigger, than that. Longtime SJSU publicist Lawrence Fan was researching whether the Spartans ever have played a nationally televised network game. The game in 2006 was regionally televised, as were all SJSU games dating to 1975. The game will mark the biggest test by far for SJSU. Boise State is 99-26 since joining the Mountain West in 2011 and won the conference championship last season for the second time in three years, The Broncos (4-1 overall, 4-0 in conference) are 14-0 all time against San Jose State. Boise State has been installed as an 11-point favorite.

Through 3 QuartersThe San Jose State Spartans were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the UNLV Rebels as SJSU lead 31-17. WR Bailey Gaither has led the way so far for the Spartans, as he has caught five passes for two TDs and 82 yards. With five sacks, the San Jose State defense has been a true menace for UNLV's offensive line.

    San Jose State could capture its first 4-0 start since 1955 with a win over UNLV this weekend, but the quarterback who will lead that charge remains up in the air. Last Friday, starting quarterback Nick Starkel was knocked out of San Jose State’s 28-17 upset victory over San Diego State after taking a hard hit during the game’s first possession. After staying down on the field for several minutes, Starkel went to the locker room. He returned to the sidelines in the second quarter wearing street clothes. Coach Brent Brennan declined to comment Monday on whether Starkel would practice or play this week. The Spartans have not specified the nature of Starkel’s injury, either. In Starkel’s place, backup Nick Nash completed 16 of 25 passes for 168 passing yards and two touchdowns to one interception. Nash also had 53 rushing yards and the game-sealing 13-yard touchdown run. While Nash was a revelation Friday night, Starkel was playing some of the best football of his career prior to the injury. In the two games he finished,...
    Stanford and San Jose State’s football teams got the clearance they have been seeking to return to their respective campuses to prepare for the 2020 football season. Public health officials announced Tuesday that Santa Clara County moved into the orange, or moderate, tier in the state’s risk reduction order to pave the way for regular football practices. The county had placed strict guidelines on activities such as football to help stop the spread of COVID-19. San Jose State plans to return home Wednesday afternoon after more than a week of training at Humboldt State. Stanford said it will start on-campus practices Wednesday after starting fall training camp at Woodside High School in San Mateo County on Friday. “We’re ecstatic,” San Jose State coach Brent Brennan said. “We’ve been up here for 10 days now. All these players, coaches and trainers have been displaced. It’s just another chapter of the crazy COVID story.” Brennan said the Spartans would return by bus after morning practice and then take Thursday off to settle in at home. San Jose...
    A San Jose State University official reached Friday defended the school’s decision to send its football team more than 300 miles north to skirt Santa Clara County coronavirus rules. The Spartans loaded up on buses Friday morning bound for Humboldt State University in Arcata, as evidenced by a video shared on the football team’s Twitter account. A spokesperson for San Jose State said via email Friday that SJSU “is planning to create a bubble to promote safety,” pointing to the NBA, WNBA and NHL’s successfully insulated communities. But teams in those leagues did not face competition from outside their bubbles. Kenneth Mashinchi, SJSU’s media relations director, said school president Mary Papazian “consulted broadly before approving the recommendation to move the football program to Humboldt State University.” When reached by this news organization Thursday, Humboldt County health officials said they were not consulted in the decision to move the team north. Heather Muller, a spokeswoman for Humboldt County’s COVID-19 Emergency Operations Center, said Friday she wished Humboldt State officials had brought public health officers into...
    The Mountain West is zeroing in on a possible late October start to its football season, according to The Associated Press. Mountain West university presidents moved up a scheduled Friday meeting to Thursday, a person with knowledge of the meeting told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league is not making its move toward a possible return to fall sports public. It was unclear whether the Mountain West presidents would vote Thursday on any proposals, the person said. Mountain West athletic directors are aiming for an Oct. 24 or Oct. 31 start for the football season. The conference is close to an agreement that will provide its 12 schools with the capacity to perform daily COVID-19 antigen tests on its athletes, the person said. Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson told AP last week the conference would not move forward on a fall football season without its schools having the ability to test daily. The Mountain West postponed its fall sports season on Aug. 10 because of the coronavirus pandemic,...
    SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – Football at San Jose State University is on hold following a decision by the Mountain West Conference to indefinitely postpone all fall sports contests, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The conference’s board of directors made the decision on Monday. Along with football, cross country, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball have also been suspended, the university said in a statement. Last week, the conference had canceled fall competition in golf, tennis, women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, softball and baseball. Conference officials said they will begin exploring the possibility of rescheduling fall sports contests in the spring. Discussions are ongoing about the status of sports that are normally played in winter. “Through the hard work of many over the past several months, the Conference made every effort to create an opportunity for our student-athletes to compete, and we empathize with the disappointment this creates for everyone associated with our programs,” said San Jose State University President Mary Papazian, who is also the chair of the Mountain West Conference’s board of...
    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose State University running backs coach Alonzo Carter is bringing hundreds of coaches together nationwide through Zoom meetings with his new initiative called "Listen, Learn, Network." "When we started it off, it was a professional development week to week thing," explains Coach Carter. "And the object was to talk about the game within the game, which would be how do we as minority coaches, how can we move up in this industry."When protests surrounding social injustice began, Coach Carter shifted the focus of the Zoom calls.Coach Carter started the Zoom calls with PAC-12 coaches. 35 minority coaches started talking about the game within the game of football in May. Not even a month later, the calls grew to 500 coaches nationwide, talking about the calls for justice in the country."A person like myself, that's from the inner city of Oakland, you understand how it is to be on the other side," Carter said. "I think that's how you figure out what the problem is. You have to listen to each other, you have to learn...
