Randy’s Free Pick
The Nevada Wolf Pack are playing the better ball at the moment, and they’ve proven they can win on the road. However, UNLV is better than what it’s shown lately, it has gotten up for big games this season and this is a rivalry game where you can throw a lot of stuff out the window. UNLV is no pushover and gets after it defensively at home. Toss up game, I’ll bet on the Rebels bouncing back.
