It’s not like Michigan State or Notre Dame collapsing, but these two are among the nation’s most disappointing teams.

Nevada and Utah State have grown into perennial mid-level Mountain West teams, serving as regulars on the bowl circuit. But this year has been different.

Nevada hasn’t been able to stop anyone’s running game. The Mountain West has some killer running backs, but the Wolf Pack haven’t faced a whole slew of killers, and yet there’s been no luck whatsoever, allowing close to 300 yards per game. The offense has tried, but it’s not doing enough to pick up the slack.

Utah State at least has a slightly better defense, but too many turnovers, not enough offense, and horrible special teams have contributed to an odd year with nothing going quite right.

The Aggies have lost six of their last seven games, and while three of the defeats were close, they’re still getting through a disastrous year. With Nevada and BYU on the road to close, there’s going to be a problem doing much for the record.

So which team will finish as a bigger clunker?

The two teams are equally awful, but Nevada is at home, and that’ll be the slight difference. It should be an okay game considering the two are at the same level, but the Wold Pack will finally have a happy moment with the passing game doing just enough to keep the chains moving.

Nevada will just have the ball more.
