Good start, rough finish for San Jose State's Brent Brennan

The Spartans used a pair of Josh Crawford to Bailey Gaither touchdowns passes to sculpt a 16-0 first quarter lead over the visitors from the American Athletic Conference.

The Bulls also lost standout defensive tackle Deadrin Senat on an ejection after a targeting penalty on the first of those two TDs, so things could hardly have gone any better for the underdog Spartans.

By halftime the squad from Tampa, Florida, owned a 28-16 lead and all momentum against an SJSU team that dropped to 0-10 in season openers against Top-25 opponents.

Stopping the run was a consistent trouble spot last year, when the Spartans allowed nearly 247 yards on the ground per game on the way to a 4-8 record that led to coach Ron Caragher’s firing after four seasons.

* One bright spot for the Spartans was senior punter Michael Carrizoza, who averaged 44.5 yards on 11 kicks, including a 68-yarder and four that were downed inside the 20-yard line.
