The Nevada Wolf Pack and Wyoming Cowboys meet Saturday in college football action at War Memorial Stadium.
The Nevada Wolf Pack look for a feel good win after splitting their last six games. The Nevada Wolf Pack have split their last eight road games. Carson Strong is completing 59.7 percent of his passes for 729 yards, three touchdowns and five interceptions. Strong and Malik Henry have combined for four touchdown passes and nine interceptions. Elijah Cooks and Romeo Doubs have combined for 702 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Kaleb Fossum has 25 receptions. The Nevada Wolf Pack ground game is averaging 134 yards per contest, and Taua leads the way with 513 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Nevada is allowing 38.6 points and 413.6 yards per game. Tyson Williams leads the Nevada Wolf Pack with 44 tackles, Dom Peterson has four sacks and Daniel Brown has three interceptions.
The Wyoming Cowboys look for a win here after splitting their last four games. The Wyoming Cowboys have won their last six home games. Sean Chambers is completing 41.1 percent of his passes for 757 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Chambers has five touchdown passes in his last four games. Austin Conway and Raghib Ismail Jr. have combined for 241 receiving yards and one touchdown while Gunner Gentry has three receptions. The Wyoming Cowboys ground game is averaging 236.7 yards per contest, and Chambers leads the way with 547 yards and nine touchdowns. Defensively, Wyoming is allowing 19.7 points and 394.6 yards per game. Alijah Halliburton leads the Wyoming Cowboys with 69 tackles, Garrett Crall has four sacks and Cassh Maluia has two interceptions.
The Wolf Pack are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games in October, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Cowboys are 1-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games in October. The under is 23-10-1 in Cowboys last 34 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Wolf Pack last 12 conference games.
The Nevada Wolf Pack have failed to cover each of their last six road games as a double-digit underdog. The Wyoming Cowboys have failed to cover eight of their last 10 games as a double-digit home favorite. Nevada has had issues consistently moving the football, as the Wolf Pack have scored a combined 19 points in their three losses. Wyoming is enjoying one of its better seasons of late, but four of its five wins have been decided by 13 or less points and the offense stalls once defenses figure out the running game. Nothing would be surprising in this contest, but I'm not laying big chalk with a one-dimensional Wyoming Cowboys squad. It's Nevada and the points or pass.
