Cole Turner, starting tight end, has also opted out for the Wolf Pack. Nate Cox will be the starting quarterback for Nevada, completing 70% of his passes (14/20) for 158 yards and 1 touchdown. Toa Taua has rushed for 704 yards and 5 touchdowns, while Romeo Doubs has caught 80 passes for 1,109 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Wolf Pack. Nevada’s head coach left for another job, so they will also have to deal with an interim head coach for this game.

Western Michigan is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games. The over is 5-2 in Western Michigan’s last 7 games. Nevada is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 bowl games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 4-1 in Nevada’s last 5 bowl games. 

Nevada is coming into this game with a backup quarterback that has hardly seen the field and an interim head coach, while Western Michigan comes in with a full roster and is playing the game in Detroit, which is only an hour or two away from the Western Michigan campus. Without Strong, I cannot back Nevada. I am going with the Broncos in this game.
