The Line: Air Force Falcons -2 -- Over/Under:
The Nevada Wolf Pack hope to continue their winning ways with a trip to Falcon Stadium to battle the Air Force Falcons.
The Nevada Wolf Pack come out of their bye looking to continue to build momentum as they travel to the Air Force in search of win number four in a row. The Wolf Pack are coming off a 30-14 victory versus visiting San Diego State behind a 20-0 second half run to break open a close contest. Both teams finished in the 330-340 yard range with Nevada holdinc Quinn Kaehler to 189 passing yards while the Nevada rushing attack took centerstage. James Butler and Don Jackson combined for 227 yards on 35 carries with a touchdown apiece. Cody Fajardo completed 10-24 for 109 yards with a 20 yard scoring toss to Richie Turner with an interception.
The Air Force Falcons haven't exactly set the world on fire the past several years but they are out to change that trend with a 7-2 record in 2014 thus far. The Falcons have won three in a row and five of six following a 48-21 rout of UNLV on the road in week eleven. The Falcons led 31-14 after 30 minutes and never gave the Rebels a chance to get back in the game. AFA racked up a 542-339 yardage advantage while holding the ball for 37+ minutes. The option put on a show with Jacobi Jones rushing for 135 yards while Kale Pearson and Shayne Devern combined for 125 yards with all three scoring. Colton Huntsman added a 53 yard run as UNLV had no answer for the Air Force option wth Pearson adding 115 passing yards including a 59 yard scoring toss to Jalen Robinette.
The Wolf Pack are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and the under is 6-0 in Wolf Pack last 6 games in November while the Wolf Pack are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. For Air Force the Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and the under is 5-0 in Falcons last 5 vs. a team with a winning record while the Falcons are 1-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Falcons are much better then in previous seasons but I look at the Wolf Pack and see a team that just won't go away...
