Jim Harbaugh will get his first win as head coach at Stanford Saturday night when the Cardinal host the San Joes State Spartans.  Look for Stanford to cover the TD+ against the spread.

Stanford's new head coach and former NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh shot his mouth off during the offseason and now needs a big win against a lightweight opponent in order to get the faithful behind the program.

The San Jose State Spartans are terrible and we have gone against them the last two weeks, winning with ease. Arizona State pounded them by a score of 45-3 and Kansas State threw two picks yet easily won by 20 points. The Spartans have scored just 17 points in two games and that does not bode well when facing a PAC-10 team.

The Cardinal also have motivation since they lost to San Jose St. last season and Harbaugh will make that well known. This game belongs to the Cardinal, who gets a big first blowout win of the season.

Free Pick: Stanford -7½
