CougarCast: BYU Football vs. San Jose State

Cougars! Spartans! Battling it out to avoid being one of the bottom 3 teams in America.

NCAA Football: UNLV at San Jose State Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, BYU lost its “jobber vs. jobber” match against East Carolina. That’s right, Iron Mike Sharpe won! This week, BYU gets another crack at a college football jobber — San Jose State University. This Saturday, Barry Horowitz vs. the Brooklyn Brawler — Card Not Subject To Change (unfortunately).

Even still, the energy and passion is still burning inside Tosh and Keith.
