Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Nevada Wolfpack will host the Texas State Bobcats on Saturday afternoon from Mackay Stadium in this season opening matchup from Reno, Nevada. The weather is expected to be 95 degrees and not too cloudy. 

The Nevada Wolf Pack finished 8-5 overall in 2021 and 5-3 in the Mountain West Conference. Nevada gave up 303 yards of total offense to the Aggies but was able to force five New Mexico State turnovers to get the win. 

Nevada had 257 yards of total offense. The Wolf Pack struggled through the air as Nevada gained only 78 yards passing, Quarterback Shane Illingworth threw for 51 yards in the win. Nevada gained 179 yards with Toa Taua leading the way with 109 yards. Tyrese Mack caught four passes for 40 yards in the win.

The Texas State Bobcats finished 2021 with a record of 4-8 overall and 3-5 in the Sun Belt Conference. The Texas State Bobcats averaged 194 yards passing last season but will focus more on the passing game in 2022. Coach Spavial brought in Layne Hatcher from Arkansas State to be the starting QB this year. 

Hatcher will get the first crack and has the most experience in the quarterback room after 32 career games at Arkansas State. Hatcher will have plenty of options at wide receiver with several key players returning including Javen Banks. Last season he had 553 yards receiving and 5 touchdowns. 

Texas State's running game produced 149 yards per game last season and it's leading rusher Calvin Hill returns after last season gaining 696 yards.

On defense, the Bobcats gave up 33 points and 430 yards per game last season.

The Wolf Pack are 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. Although the Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf, the Wolf Pack are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games.

The Wolfpack will bring that same intensity on defense as they look to get another win.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
