The Utah State Aggies and UNLV Rebels do battle Saturday night in week 4 college football action at Maverik Stadium. The UNLV Rebels look to get off to a 3-1 start. The Utah State Aggies look to get to a .500 record with a win here.

The UNLV Rebels have lost 6 of their last 7 road games. Doug Brumfield is completing 70.6 percent of his passes for 773 yards, 7 touchdowns and 1 interception. Ricky White and Kyle Williams have combined for 506 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while Jeff Weimer has 11 receptions. The UNLV Rebels ground game is averaging 205.7 yards per contest, and Aidan Robbins leads the way with 346 yards and 6 touchdowns. Defensively, UNLV is allowing 22.7 points and 361.7 yards per game. Austin Ajiake leads the UNLV Rebels with 16 tackles, Adam Plant Jr. has 1 sack and Jerrae Williams has 1 interception.

The Utah State Aggies have split their last 8 home games. Logan Bonner is completing 50.7 percent of his passes for 440 yards, 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Brian Cobbs and Justin McGriff have combined for 259 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Kyle Van Leeuwen has 8 receptions. The Utah State Aggies ground game is averaging 155.3 yards per contest, and Calvin Tyler Jr. leads the way with 238 yards on 63 carries. Defensively, Utah State is allowing 36.7 points and 441.3 yards per game. MJ Tafisi leads the Utah State Aggies with 23 tackles, Daniel Grzesiak has 1 sack and Ike Larsen has 2 interceptions.

The Rebels are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Aggies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 4-1 in Rebels last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Aggies last 4 games overall. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

I’m not sure if we can completely trust the UNLV Rebels through 3 solid games, but there’s no doubt they’re off to a fine start, and they have a balanced offense for once. The Utah State Aggies are coming off a straight-up blowout loss to Weber State despite being a touchdown favorite. Utah State has scored a combined 7 points in their last 2 games, and their defense has been nothing to write home about either. UNLV is probably the rightful favorite here, as it’s tough to make a case for Utah State in its current form. I’ll lay the chalk.
