Why UNLV can cover
UNLV owns a smooth and effective aerial attack. This offense is averaging 259.8 passing yards per game and has scored 50-plus points in two games thus far. Sophomore receiver Ricky White is a sound route runner with the ability to separate from defenders. White is leading the team in both receptions (19) and receiving yards (317) with three touchdowns. In Week Three, he caught seven passes for 76 yards and a touchdown.
Junior receiver Kyle Williams is another smooth option in the passing game. Williams has sure hands, a nice release with the skill to explode off the line. The California native has reeled in 18 passes for 235 yards with a team-high four touchdowns. He's snagged a touchdown in each game this season. On Sept. 17, he recorded eight catches for 69 yards and a touchdown.
Why New Mexico can cover
Sophomore running back Nathaniel Jones has the skillset needed to thrive in the backfield. Jones has the size (5-foot-11, 200 pounds) to barrel through defenders and produces yards after contact. The California native is leading the team in carries (38) and yards (138). His best performance thus far came against UTEP, where he recorded 21 carries for 83 yards with a touchdown.
Junior running back Sherod White is another contributor in the backfield. White is a strong ball-carrier who has great hands in the passing game. He is second on the team with 26 carries for 110 yards and a team-best three touchdowns. White also reeled in four passes for 60 yards. This duo is looking to get it going into this primetime affair.
