The Nevada Wolf Pack could use a big win here to get back to a .500 record. Tyler Stewart is completing 54.1 percent of his passes for 820 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. Stewart has thrown a pick in three of his last four games. Jerico Richardson and Hasaan Henderson have combined for 521 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Wyatt Demps has 10 receptions. The Nevada Wolf Pack ground game is averaging 196.6 yards per contest, and James Butler leads the way with 426 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Nevada is allowing 29.8 points and 444 yards per game. Matthew Lyons leads the Wolf Pack with 46 tackles, Lenny Jones has four sacks and Dameon Baber has three interceptions. Adam Khouri and Rykeem Yates are questionable.
The Lobos are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Wolf Pack are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games.
Nevada has had a tough road early this season with matchups against Arizona and Texas A&M. New Mexico is more of the Wolf Pack's speed and should give them a chance to get their season back on track. At home, I like Neveda to win by a touchdown.
