The San Jose State Spartans trail the Nevada Wolf Pack 14-7 after one half of play. The Spartans have only recorded one first down up to this point in the game but enter halftime down by only one score.
The two sides had uneventful first quarters until the end. Both sides punted on the game's first three possessions until the Spartans intercepted quarterback Tyler Lantrip in the endzone to reclaim possession. The play killed a possible score for the Wolf Pack, but the Spartans were not able to drive the length of the field and convert.
Nevada scored on a four-yard rushing touchdown by Mike Bell in the final minutes of the first quarter, and the Spartans came right back with a 28-yard rushing touchdown of their own by Dasmen Stewart.
The Wolf Pack put together an extended drive in the second quarter to score again on a one-yard run by Bell. San Jose was unable to respond, but the Spartans defense did make a goal-line stand against Nevada in the final minute of the half. Nevada failed to convert on a 4th-and-1 on the one-yard line.
Stewart has thrown for only 5 yards on two-for-nine passing, but his 28-yard rushing touchdown leads the Spartans in the running game. The Spartans generated only 51 yards of offense in the first half, far below the Wolf Pack's 270 yard figure.
Nevada will receive the kickoff to start the second half.
