The San Jose St. Spartans went into Auburn, Alabama, as a big underdog to the Auburn Tigers. The Tigers had beaten Arkansas 42-21 in their season opener, with running back Cameron Artis-Payne expected to be a dominant weapon that the Spartans would have to contain to win.
Artis-Payne again had a nice week, gaining 112 yards as Auburn's offensive line played well.
San Jose started the game in good fashion as quarterback Blake Jurich threw a 75-yard touchdown to receiver Tyler Ervin in the first quarter. However, Jurich later tossed two first-half interceptions for San Jose State (1-1). Injured on a late game play, Jurich left in the fourth quarter and later had had X-rays. He wanted to to return and try to play, but Spartan's coach Ron Caragher kept Jurich out of the game after his injury. The Spartans knew they would have it tough against the Tiger's dominant running game, and would have to play near perfect football on the road to win.
