Eric Musselman and the Wolf Pack are slowly increasing their non-conference slate. The two teams will meet this year on November 13 in Reno, Nevada, and will have a return matchup in Kingston, Rhode Island, in the 2018-19 season at a date that is currently to be determined.

Not only is the former Utah State back getting second team reps with Ty Montgomery out, but Mays feels he should be mentioned in the same breath as Leonard Fournette.
“I’ve always believed in myself,” Mays said this week. “I know what I can do. I don’t really know what would have happened if I wouldn’t have got injured, but I know I have the ability and skill set to have been a top player.”

To prepare for the upcoming season the defending Mountain West champs are taking their international trip in hopes of having a better start to 2017 compared to 2016.
“I thought Stanford was our worst performance and I thought St. Mary’s was our second worst,” Musselman said talking about last season. “We slowly got better and better and we were at our peak come conference time. Hopefully these five games will give Caleb (Martin), Cody (Martin), Hallice (Cooke) and Kendall (Stephens) a chance to get their feet back wet with referees and some fans. It will give them an opportunity for a game feel rather than doing everything behind closed doors at Lawlor.”
