Beta_Rank Breakdown

Rob: This game should not be close, but it involves Ohio so we'll see. The Bobcats come in with the #37 offense and are a little more balanced and less run heavy than usual; with a #24/#65 run/pass split. Nevada has been bad on defense this season; a major regression after losing a lot of production off last year's squad. They come in at #95 with a #74/#105 split. Ohio should be able to move the ball easily against the Wolfpack even though the Bobcats are a little run heavy and the extra time to prep may help Nevada. On the other side of the ball Ohio should be just bad enough on defense #114 to let the #115 Wolfpack put up some points. Ohio has a #114/#106 run/pass split and Nevada is at #115/#78 so they'll need to throw it effectively to keep up.

Ohio 31 Nevada 20
