Why UNLV Will Win

It might have more to do with Florida A&M than it does UNLV. The Rattlers were ranked 348th in CBS Sports’ 1-351 preseason rankings and don’t have much upside heading into the season. Regardless of whether Brandon McCoy goes or not, UNLV will have far more size and talent than its opposition. The Rebels will be playing in front of what should be a passionate and excited home crowd at the T&M. Florida A&M takes on WAC favorite Grand Canyon Friday night and could look winded by the second half on Saturday. Look for the new-look Rebels to feed off the positive energy and score a blowout home victory.
