The Nevada Wolf Pack and Air Force Falcons face off on Friday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Falcon Stadium. When these two teams faced off in November 2021 it was Air Force that won 41-39 in overtime.
Nevada comes into this game sitting with a 2-2 record overall, but they are coming off a loss in their last game. Nevada gave up 27 points, and the offense couldn’t get on the board, and that led to the loss. Nevada is averaging 25.5 points per game, while their pitching is giving up 27 points per game. Shane Illingworth got the start in the last game, and he threw for 82 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. The top running back for Nevada has been Toa Taua, and he has rushed 78 times for 277 yards and three touchdowns. In this game, Nevada needs the offense to be strong.
On the other side of this matchup is Air Force, who sits with a 2-1 record, but they are coming off a loss in their last game. Against Wyoming, the offense could only manage 14 points, and that led to the three-point defeat. Air Force is a run-first team, but they can also pass the ball a little. In the last game, Haazig Daniels completed 7 of his 14 passes for 101 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. John Eldridge also rushed 13 times for 104 yards and zero touchdowns. Air Force is averaging 34.3 points, while their defense is giving up 14.67 points per game.
Nevada is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games on grass. Air Force is 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 games after accumulating less than 275 total yards in their previous game. The under is 5-0 in Nevada’s last five games.
Air Force’s offense showed some holes in the last game, and I expect Nevada is going to slow them down enough to keep this game close. Nevada is averaging 25.5 points per game, and although they might not reach that number, they are going to go over 20 points. Nevada might not win this game, but they are going to do enough to keep this game close. Back Nevada against the spread.
