SAN JOSE ST 20, BYU 14
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- David Fales threw for 305 yards and
three touchdowns to lead San Jose State to a 20-14 victory
against BYU on Saturday night, giving the Spartans their first
five-game winning streak since 1990.
Noel Grigsby caught two of the scoring passes and finished with
132 yards on eight receptions for San Jose State (9-2).
Riley Nelson threw for 335 yards and touchdown for the Cougars
(6-5), but he was sacked four times. Cody Hoffman had 13
receptions for 155 yards.
Nelson hit David Foote for a 20-yard TD to cut the lead to six
points with 2:36 remaining, and BYU recovered the subsequent
onside kick. The Cougars drove to the Spartans' 21-yard line,
but Nelson fumbled when hit by Keith Smith, and Vince Buhagiar
recovered for San Jose State with 1:16 to play.
Twice earlier in the fourth quarter, BYU drove deep into SJSU
territory but couldn't score.
Fales passed to Grigsby for scores of 51 and 18 yards. Chandler
Jones caught the other scoring toss, an 8-yarder.
By winning the teams' first meeting in San Jose since 1968, the
Spartans took a 10-6 lead in the all-time series.
