What to Know

The Nevada Wolf Pack are 3-1 against the Colorado State Rams since December of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Friday. Nevada will take on Colorado State at 10:30 p.m. ET at Clarence Mackay Stadium after a week off. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after considerable defeats in their previous games.

The Wolf Pack were expected to have a tough go of it two weeks ago, and, well, they did. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 48-20 walloping at the Air Force Falcons' hands. Nevada was down 41-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.

Meanwhile, Colorado State has to be aching after a bruising 41-10 defeat to the Sacramento State Hornets two weeks ago.

Nevada is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a defeat, both will be hungry for the victory. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
