The San Jose State Spartans kick off their 2023 season facing the Oregon State Beavers on September 3 at CEFCU Stadium in San Jose, California.
At San Jose State, Brent Brennan has developed an attractive program. There are certainly harsher locations to call home and work, but it’s consistently been a difficult job with hit-or-miss attraction, hard recruitment in a region that isn’t really football-crazy, and a lack of a great track record of achievement. Mike MacIntyre and Dick Tomey demonstrated that it was feasible to achieve greatness for a season by catching lightning in a bottle. Brennan has at last established a benchmark for dependable achievement.
The 24 victories during the past 4 seasons reflect the most successful run for San Jose State football after Claude Gilbert produced consecutive 10-2 years in 1986 and 1987, albeit even then it was only a 2 campaign burst. He got off to a difficult start as he went 3-22 in both of his initial campaigns. The squad this season has a lot of replacement work to do on both sides of the ball, but it has a respectable amount of young depth and a few All-Mountain West type players to attempt to reach their 3rd bowl contest in 4 years.
For the initial time after 2006, Oregon State recorded double-digit victories last season. The Beavers merely have to restock on defense and kickstart their passing offense under Clemson recruit DJ Uiagalelei if they want to compete for the Pac-12 championship with one of the best offensive lines and ground attacks in the country.
The Beavers should contend for a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game and an additional 10-win campaign if Oregon State’s defense even gets near duplicating its output from one season ago. In either case, Smith ought to get the Beavers into a bowl match for a 3rd straight year, which would be a first for the school since 2006–09.
