Nevada (2-1) vs. UTEP (1-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Now we get to see if there really is an improvement at UTEP.
After struggling to get by Houston Baptist, the Miners were able to D up a bit in a 38-3 loss to Texas Tech. Now it’s up to the Miners to come up with something special against a strange Nevada team that hasn’t shown a lick of consistency.
Good enough to come back and shock Purdue, the Wolf Pack got rocked 77-6 by Oregon, and had to fight to slip by a solid Weber State team. This is when the offense has to get going before dealing with Hawaii next week.
UTEP’s defense isn’t all that awful, but it doesn’t have the pass rush to bother freshman QB Carson Strong. The other side is the bigger problem – the Miners just don’t have any reliable playmakers. However, they can hit the occasional deep ball and they aren’t making a whole lot of major mistakes.
That won’t be enough.
Nevada’s offensive line won’t be able to take control of the game, but the O will hang on to the ball enough to grind out a few good scoring drives to get out with a win. It won’t be anything amazing, but right now for the Pack it’s survive-and-advance time.
