The Nevada Wolf Pack and the Utah State Aggies will match up on the college football circuit Saturday. 

Nevada enters this one at 4-2 overall. The Wolf Pack have fallen to Oregon and Hawaii but gotten wins versus Purdue, Weber State, UTEP and San Jose State this season.

In the win over the Spartans, Nevada QB Malik Henry posted 352 yards with one TD and two picks, and Toa Taua logged 160 yards and a score rushing. Romeo Doubs was the top receiver there on 146 yards and a TD from five grabs. 

Over on the Utah State side, they’re 3-2 this year. The Aggies have beaten Stony Brook, San Diego State and Colorado State while otherwise dropping to Wake Forest and LSU. 

In the loss to LSU, Utah State QB Jordan Love logged 130 yards and three INTs, with Jordan Nathan hauling in four passes for 51 yards. Gerold Bright led an anemic rush there on 18 yards. 

The Wolf Pack are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four in October and 4-1-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Nevada are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five overall and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four conference games. 

Meanwhile, the Aggies are 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games and 5-1 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss. Utah State is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 on turf and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 overall. 

After an unceremonious 54-3 beatdown courtesy of Hawaii, Nevada got their offense working again versus SJSU. The drawback there is that they allowed 38 points and barely escaped with a 3-point victory. Still, that’s at least 37 points in two of the last three games for them. 

Utah State has been a little inconsistent scoring-wise here and there—and we can pretty much just toss out the LSU game—but overall they’ve looked pretty solid in their three wins. I’m going to stick with the Aggies here.
