Jeff Tedford’s crew headed to San Jose for their second conference matchup and left with 27-10 victory over the San Jose State Spartans and a a piece of hardware: the Valley Trophy.
Underlying the Silicon Valley victory: staunch defense that forced four turnovers. Meanwhile, Marcus McMariyon – in his second start as quarterback for the Dogs – completed 15 of 26 passes for 136 yards.
Running back Ronnie Rivers accounted for two of the Dogs’ three touchdowns.
The Dogs return to Bulldog Stadium on Oct. 11 for Homecoming against the New Mexico Lobos.
