    Why Nevada Will Win

    The Wolf Pack running game has to run for 200 yards. 2-0 when running for 200, 0-3 when it didn’t – the Lobo defensive line has to stay on the sidelines. New Mexico State was able to take off for big run after big run last week on the way to over 300 yards, and while Nevada doesn’t have a Larry Rose III, it should be able to grind it out.

    What’s Going To Happen?

    Run, run, run. Can either team come up with a key play at the right time through the air? Nevada’s passing game is non-existent, and New Mexico doesn’t have one, but the Lobos will pull off the upset by doing the running game better.
