Nelson believes because BYU's offense and coordinator Doman have struggled and seen hard times, the tough going has drawn all parties closer together down the stretch.
"It has helped this season to where right now we're building and gaining momentum rather than just trying to suffer through the end."
After watching SJSU's defense on film, a unit that ranks No. 7 nationally in sacks, Nelson knows he has to deliver the ball fast, make good decisions and not get caught for losses.
On one night this week, he specifically focused film study on SJSU's defensive strategy on third downs and inside the red zone, situations where they routinely get sacks.
Nelson is as ready as he's ever been since the start of the Weber State game.
Will that make the difference come Saturday night?
For the sake of BYU's defense, which will have its hands full with Fales and his No. 9-ranked passing offense, it certainly is key that Nelson finds a way in San Jose.
