What You Need To Know About The Nevada Offense

–  The Pack Attack offense was good enough for its first year after the switch. It wasn’t exactly the all-throw-no-run offense it appeared to be going into the season, and it wasn’t consistent, but it finished second in the Mountain West in passing yards and averaged close to 400 yards per game overall. In all, seven starters are back, starting with …

– QB Ty Gangi as the head of the offense should do even more. Eight different players threw at least one pass, but it was Gangi who took to the offense throwing 25 touchdown passes and making it all start to work as the season went on.

Leading target Wyatt Demps is gone, but all of the other receptions and touchdown catches are back. The Pack have a nice 1-2 punch in McLane Mannix and Brendan O’Leary-Orange to do more with Demps gone, but Gangi will spread the ball around.

– There will be a little bit of a ground game. Kelton Moore averaged over five yards per carry, and now he’s back. Everyone who gained a positive rushing yard returns after the Pack ran for just 1,526 yards and 12 scores, but was effective when they tried. Three starters are gone up front, but center Sean Krepsz is a good one to start with.

Biggest Key To The Nevada Offense

Apparently, the passing game has to be crazy-accurate for the Wolf Pack to win. They won three games last season, and in all three Gangi connected on 70% of his passes. When the offense dipped under the mark? 0-9.

Even when the offense worked and the O went off – like it did against Colorado State for 508 passing yards and five scores and for 414 yards against San Diego State – it wasn’t enough.
