The San Jose State Spartans remain unbeaten in Western Athletic Conference action as they defeated the Idaho Vandals 28-20 at Spartan Stadium behind the dynamic duo of quarterback, Adam Tafralis, and receiver, Kevin Jurovich!

Jurovich played like a complete stud, as he hauled in 10 of Tafralis' passes for a career-high 161 yards and a touchdown. Tafralis' day was complimented with 302 yards on 22-of-30 passing and two touchdowns.

Running back, James T. Callier, carried the load for San Jose State with career highs of 31 rushes and 93 yards, taking two in for touchdowns. The Spartan pass defense was awesome as they picked off two passes and held the Vandals' passing attack to a 68 yards.

Callier started the scoring, as SJSU lead early 7-3.

Callier banged one in once again, plunging across the goal line on a one-yard run, giving the SJSU a 14-6 lead.

With seconds remaining in the second quarter, Tafalis and Jurovich connected on a 33-yard toss to end the half with SJSU leading the Vandals 21-6.

The third quarter was a "grinder", and was scoreless. The game was finally put on ice as Tafralis' second touchdown pass was a thing of beauty. It was a 13-yard reception to Jeff Clark.

Idaho (1-5, 0-2) came blazing back (due to many SJSU errors) with two fourth quarter touchdowns.

One play was a blocked punt, which was returned 20 yards to the endzone by Vandal, Maurice Shaw.

San Jose State next game is a nationally-televised match-up with #15, the University of Hawai'i, on Friday, October 12th.

Kick-off at Spartan Stadium is at 5:00 p.m., with ESPN providing live nationwide television coverage!
