Tenth ranked USF got a first half own goal and a second half score by freshman Conor Chinn to defeat San Jose State 2-0 at Spartan Stadium.
The Dons, beginning a long roadtrip improved to 3-0 on the season, while San Jose State dropped to 1-2 on the year.
USF got on the board in the 15th minute when Matt Languis' corner kick was headed into the goal by a Spartan defender.
The Dons got an insurance goal at 62:56 when Chinn knocked home a rebound of a Jordan Keyes shot off the hands of Spartan goalkeeper Richard Mann. Chinn scored on his first shot of his first NCAA game.
USF goalkeeper Geremy Uhl recorded his third shutout in three games.
"I am pleased with our start this season," said Dons head coach Erik Visser. "San Jose State played a good game tonight, but we were a little better. We got performances from several players tonight, and got the result."
USF continues its difficult schedule when they visit the Penn State tournament next weekend where they will face powerful Penn State and Ohio State.
