The UNLV Rebels and Nevada Wolf Pack meet Saturday in week 14 college football action at Mackay Stadium.
The UNLV Rebels could use a feel good win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The UNLV Rebels have lost four of their last five road games. Armani Rogers is completing 51.9 percent of his passes for 393 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Rogers and Kenyon Oblad have combined for 17 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Randal Grimes and Noah Bean have combined for 1,032 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Giovanni Fauolo Sr. has 21 receptions. The UNLV Rebels ground game is averaging 166.8 yards per contest, and Charles Williams leads the way with 1,119 yards and 10 touchdowns. Defensively, UNLV is allowing 33.3 points and 440.8 yards per game. Rayshad Jackson leads the UNLV Rebels with 91 tackles, Bryce Jackson has two sacks and Jericho Flowers has four interceptions.
The Nevada Wolf Pack look to close out the regular season on a four-game winning streak. The Nevada Wolf Pack have won four of their last five home games. Carson Strong is completing 63.8 percent of his passes for 1,582 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Strong and Malik Henry have combined for 10 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. Romeo Doubs and Elijah Cooks have combined for 1,227 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Kaleb Fossum has 28 receptions. The Nevada Wolf Pack ground game is averaging 124.1 yards per contest, and Toa Taua leads the way with 716 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Nevada is allowing 32 points and 396.4 yards per game. Tyson Williams leads the Nevada Wolf Pack with 71 tackles, Dom Peterson has seven sacks and Daniel Brown has four interceptions.
The Rebels are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games following a ATS win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win. The Wolf Pack are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 home games, 8-3 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games in November. The Rebels are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Nevada and the underdog is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Wolf Pack last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Rebels last 7 games overall.
The UNLV Rebels are 4-4-1 ATS in their last nine games as a road underdog. The Nevada Wolf Pack are 4-4-1 ATS in their last nine games as a home favorite. The UNLV Rebels beat up on San Jose State last week, but you remove that game and this is a team that can't score and struggles to get off the field defensively. The Nevada Wolf Pack have a lot of momentum after back-to-back road victories and will be up for this game with 20 seniors on the roster saying their goodbyes. I just haven't seen enough from the UNLV Rebels that suggests they can hang around in this contest.
