The Jumbo Package: 08/31/10

You know it's game week when the opponent profiles start popping up all over the interwebs. The problem is that with an overhauled roster and a new head coach, there just ain't a lot of 411 on the San Jose State Spartans. 

Coach Saban has admitted this one is a challenge to prepare for and the staff has been forced to use Nevada-Reno as their example because "supposedly that is the offense that this team is running."
