Through 3 Quarters
The experts predicted a defeat for the Nevada Wolf Pack, but with just one quarter left to go, they seem like they might make the experts look bad. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Wyoming Cowboys 28-13 three quarters in.
Nevada has been relying on WR Cole Turner, who has caught seven passes for two TDs and 119 yards, and QB Carson Strong, who has passed for three TDs and 393 yards on 44 attempts. One of the most thrilling moments was Turner's 50-yard TD reception in the second quarter.
Wyoming has been led by QB Levi Williams, who so far has accumulated 131 passing yards in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

What to Know
The Wyoming Cowboys and the Nevada Wolf Pack will face off at 7 p.m. ET Oct. 24 at Clarence Mackay Stadium to kick off their 2020 seasons. Wyoming was on the positive side of.500 (8-5) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year. Nevada is in much the same boat after finishing their last year at 7-6.
A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Cowboys were ninth best in the nation in touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2019 season giving up only 25. Less enviably, Nevada was sixth worst when it came to passing touchdowns allowed last season, with the team giving up 31 overall. The good news for Nevada, of course, is that these forces working against them might not carry over into the new season.
The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two. We'll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
