LOS ANGELES -- A 3-0 lead that comes after a fourth-and-9 conversion can only help San Jose State gain confidence.
As will a fumble from Anthony McCoy that killed a nice completion from Matt Barkley. That's two first-quarter fumbles for the Trojans.
It seems like the Spartans see some gaps in the USC secondary. The new Trojans linebackers, meanwhile, are making plays.
