What’s Going To Happen

Will it be the Nevada passing game or the Ohio running attack?

Can Wolf Pack freshman QB Carson Strong take over? The team is 4-1 in his nine games on the field when he hits more than 65% of Strong’s passes. Ohio hasn’t played too many good passing games, and it’s been rocked by the ones that have one.

Can Ohio’s Nathan Rourke win his third straight bowl game as the Ohio starting quarterback? He’s been on fire with the passing game over the last few games, doesn’t throw picks – giving up just one in the final seven games –  and spread out his 12 touchdown runs and needs to take over right away.

He will.

Ohio has had a weird season. It’s 6-6, but four of the losses were by three points or fewer, with one of the other losses coming to Pitt.

How does Nevada loses games? The run defense can’t come up with stops.

Ohio will run for over 200 yards, and it’ll finally give the MAC a positive moment in this bowl after losing five of its last six since a thrilling 24-23 win over Utah State in 2011 … by Ohio.
