Why nevada Will Win
The Colorado State Rams are bad and are going thru their third head coach after Larry Eustachy his replacement Steve Barnes were both suspended due to allegations of player abuse.
Also, the Rams will be without JD Paige which is a big blow if they were to pull off the upset. He is out due to violating team rules.
The Rams are in a bad place currently and are coming off a 33-point thumping at the hands of Boise State on Thursday. Now the Rams face a Wolf Pack team that have their eyes set on winning a share of their second straight Mountain West regular season title.
I think because the Wolf Pack are playing for a championship on the line, they will come in focus and utilize their superior talent to overwhelm the Rams early and contain the Rams back court of Mitchell and Nixon and keep Carvacho off the boards.
I like the Wolf Pack to take care of the Rams and cut down the nets at Lawlor as they celebrate another Mountain West championship.
