San Jose State-Colorado State Kickoff Time; Northern Colorado Is 2019 Opener

June 6, 2017

San Jose State University game times for the 2017 football season continue taking shape as the CBS Sports Network determined the Spartans game at Colorado State on November 18 will have a 1:30 p.m. (MT) kickoff.

San Jose State now has four of its 13 games with a kickoff time -- the August 26 home opener vs. South Florida (4:30 p.m.), September 9 at Texas (2:30 p.m., CT), September 16 at Utah (8:00 p.m., MT) and November 18 at Colorado State (1:30 p.m., MT).

Season tickets for the 2017 home schedule are available by visiting or by calling (408) 924-7589 or (877) SJSU-TIX.

In more football scheduling news, San Jose State completed its 2019 non-conference schedule with Northern Colorado agreeing to come to CEFCU Stadium on Thursday, August 29. The Spartans and the Bears will be meeting for the first time.

"We look forward to opening our 2019 season with Northern Colorado in CEFCU Stadium," says Marie Tuite, San Jose State University's director of athletics.

"Our student turnouts for the Thursday night before the Labor Day weekend are good for our team. We look forward to giving our students another entertaining game the first week of school when we host Northern Colorado."

San Jose State's other non-conference opponents two years from now include hosting Tulsa and traveling to Arkansas and Army.

"The 2019 non-conference schedule is in line with our goal to play a FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) team at home; two games, one home and one away as part of home-and-home series against schools from the "Group of Five" conferences; and one revenue-generating game either on the road or at a neutral site," Tuite explains.



Northern Colorado is a FCS member playing in the Big Sky Conference. The Tulsa game is a return by the Golden Hurricane for hosting the Spartans in 2016. The 2019 contest with Army is the second of four consecutive games with the Cadets. The trip to Arkansas fits the bill of a revenue-generating encounter.
