11/20/2009 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: San Jose State isn't in the same stratosphere as the Broncos, but USU was pleased that it held the Spartans to few big plays a week ago. "You didn't see the big runs that broke out for 15, 20, 30 yards down the field, you didn't see the big pass plays that broke out in those situations," Andersen said. "And then you also saw the defense being able to go through the whole football game and stop the run consistently the whole game. That was big for us." The longest past play SJSU had was a 29-yarder and that came courtesy of a halfback pass by Brandon Rutley. If that's all BSU can get, the Aggies are probably in much better shape than they ever anticipated. Andersen says pressure on Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore will be crucial. But can it be done by a team the USU head coach estimates has only had two successful games getting it?
