At face value, it’s not the flashiest record in the world. Some could even call it mediocre. But for San Jose State, those five wins mean so much more than other fanbases could ever imagine.
The Spartans 17-16 win over rival Fresno State was perhaps the biggest win in a season where every win felt big. Massive.
San Jose State closed out the 2010’s with a 44-80 record and three head coaches. Brent Brennan inherited a program in dismay in 2017. Ron Caragher took over in 2013, after Mike MacIntyre led the Spartans to one of the best seasons in program history, going 11-2 in 2012.
