Why UNLV Will Win

On paper, UNLV is the more talented team, but Eastern Washington will present a very stiff challenge for the new look Runnin’ Rebels, as they are fresh off a win over Stanford.  They are experienced and efficient, but if UNLV can play to their advantages, using McCoy and Juiston down low, they should be able to secure a victory in what will likely be a close game.  An X factor for the Rebels in this game is Anthony Smith.  If he can continue contributing off the bench like he has, it’ll go a long way in helping UNLV secure a win.
