Why NEVADA WILL Win
The Wolf Pack will be in a fight as they face the Broncos on Saturday night. The Wolf Pack will win because I believe the Wolf Pack can collectively pick-up their team defensive prowess with Cody Martin being limited or ruled out of tonight’s game. Chandler Hutchison is the man the Wolf Pack need to stop or at least contain.
He has stepped up his game this season and his game performances this past week has shown why he was the favorite to win MWC Player of the Year at the beginning of the year. If the Wolf Pack can limit Hutchison, the rest of the Broncos are average on offense whereas the Wolf Pack have the weapons on offense (Caroline, Stephens and Cody Martin) to pressure Boise State’s defense. This game will be close, but the difference will be the Wolf Pack offense and the home crowd in Reno as the Wolf Pack will win in a close contest.
