About the Spartans

Quarterback Chevan Cordeiro leads the San Jose State offense. Cordeiro transferred to SJSU this offseason from fellow Mountain West member school Hawai’i. Cowboy fans may want to forget Cordeiro passed for 323 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 86 yards and one TD in leading Hawai’i to a 38-14 win over Wyoming in Laramie last season.
The Spartan defense is led by defensive lineman Cade Hall, who was the 2020 MW Defensive Player of the Year and was selected the 2022 Preseason Co-Defensive Player of the Year by conference media members.
