Cody Fajardo will try to brush off the injury bug and stay healthy for his senior season. Fajardo is the key for this Wolf Pack team as it looks to bounce back from its first losing season in five years and its first non-bowl season in eight years.
Fajardo is one of seven offensive starters back for the Pack. The drop-off from legendary head coach Chris Ault to last year's rookie head coach Brian Polian was notable. And the Pistol offense slipped to No. 75 in scoring and No. 51 in rushing. But there is a nice crop of skill guys back and Nevada should be improved on that side of the ball.
Nevada has to improve on defense, though. They do have 10 returning starters this season and several three-year starters. But they were No. 122 against the rush and No. 117 overall last year and they need to allow a lot less than 34.4 points per game.
Nevada's schedule is daunting early. They host Washington State in Week 2 and have to play Arizona and Boise State in their first five games. That's three potential losses. But besides that, every game on the Wolfpack's schedule is a potential win.
I think Nevada can be a surprise team in the Mountain West this year. They host Boise State and Fresno State and they have extra weeks to prepare for winnable road games at San Jose and at Air Force. If Fajardo stays healthy this team is always a threat for an upset and I see this team sailing over its win total.
