One Mountain West football team is fighting to achieve bowl eligibility, while the other is fighting to keep its slim hopes of advancing to the conference championship game alive.

Simply put, both Utah State and San Jose State should be plenty motivated to prevail in their second-to-last game of the regular season. The Aggies and Spartans will square off on what’s certain to be a frigid Saturday evening at Maverik Stadium. The opening kickoff from Merlin Olsen Field is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. and the game will be televised on Fox Sports 1.
