View From the Other Side(line): Q&A with San Jose State beat writer Jimmy Durkin

AUBURN, Ala. — As we will every Thursday evening this season, the War Eagle Extra blog will try to track down a beat writer for Auburn's opponent for the coming weekend. Jimmy Durkin, who covers San Jose State for the San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group, took time to answer five questions about the Spartans before they make the (long) trek down to Alabama for Saturday's meeting with the Tigers.
