The Nevada Wolf Pack (3-3) will try to snap their two-game losing streak when they go up against the Brigham Young Cougars (4-2) on Saturday. In 2013, the Cougars beat the Wolf Pack 28-23 on the road.
Nevada lost for the third time in four games on Saturday when they were beaten 31-24 by Colorado State. Nevada did play well offensively in that game, though, by passing for 297 yards and rushing for 160 yards.
The Wolf Pack have scored 28.5 points per game this season while their defense has given up 26.5 points per game. Quarterback Cody Fajardo has thrown for 1,401 yards with nine touchdowns, and he also leads the team in rushing with 405 yards and six more touchdowns. Sophomore wide receiver Hasaan Henderson has caught 28 passes for 411 yards and two scores.
After starting the season 4-0, BYU has now lost two games in a row after losing 31-24 in overtime to UCF last Thursday. The Cougars did force four turnovers in that loss, but their offense could only put up 153 passing yards against UCF's defense.
One thing that BYU has done well this season is run the ball as they have averaged 210.7 rushing yards per game through their first six games. Their top rusher is quarterback Taysom Hill, who has 460 yards with eight touchdowns already. Hill has also thrown for 975 yards this season with seven touchdown passes and three interceptions.
