The Nevada Wolf Pack look for another win to start 6-0 for the first time since the 2010 CFB season. The Nevada Wolf Pack have won their last three road games.

The Nevada Wolf Pack ground game is averaging 96.8 yards per contest, and Toa Taua leads the way with 307 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Nevada is allowing 20.6 points and 312.8 yards per game. Lawson Hall leads the Nevada Wolf Pack with 33 tackles, Dom Peterson has four sacks and Berdale Robins has one interception.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors could use a win after losing three of their last four games. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have won five of their last six home games. Chevan Cordeiro is completing 57.9 percent of his passes for 1,211 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Cordeiro has eight touchdown passes in his last three games. Calvin Turner and Jared Smart have combined for 494 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Nick Mardner has nine receptions.

The Wolf Pack are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in November, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Rainbow Warriors are 9-20 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 16-36-1 ATS in their last 53 conference games and 11-27-1 ATS in their last 39 home games. The under is 3-0-1 in Wolf Pack last 4 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Rainbow Warriors last 7 home games. The Wolf Pack are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have been great at home the last few years and they have an edge in this spot with it being a couple days after Thanksgiving. Nevada could have its focus elsewhere with them being far away from their family during this time of year. With that said, Nevada is the team to beat in the MWC with one of the best passing attacks in college football and an above-average defense. Nevada is also 4-1 ATS this spread this season, so the Wolf Pack are just one of those teams you don't bet against until given a reason.
I'll lay the touchdown with Nevada late Saturday night.
