Nevada continues to find themselves in postseason bowl games.
They’ll look to start their 2016 push for a postseason bowl off on the right foot Friday night when they welcome in Cal Poly.
Nevada opens as good sized favorites against Cal Poly, but this isn’t one team you want to sleep on, especially in the first tuneup of the season.
Cal Poly Mustangs
The Mustangs aren’t going to surprise you with what they’re playing calling is.
Last season they averaged just 91.2 yards per game through the air. On the ground, it was a different story. Cal Poly averaged 387.3 yards on the ground.
This team is no pushover. They averaged nearly 33.8 points per game in 2015, as they run the triple option nearly flawless.
Look for Joe Protheroe, Jared Mohamed, and Reagan Enger to all get touches here, as the trio of junior running backs will all enter the triple option formation.
If Cal Poly can get a push from the offensive line, they’ll have a chance to wear this Wolfpack front down and find some gaps as the game goes on.
Nevada isn’t the most flashy team, but they work in a solid balance offensively that has led them to back to back 7 win seasons.
Last year, Nevada averaged 164 yards through the air, while putting up 210 yards on the ground.
Nevada will work in a new offensive coordinator in Tim Cramsey, who will keep the pistol offense that the Wolfpack have become so famous for.
Junior James Butler will be the backbone to this offense, as he rumbled for 1342 yards while racking up 10 touchdowns. Butler started just 1 game last year, but figures to be number 1 on the depth chart this season.
QB wise, Tyler Stewart returns for his senior season after putting up 2139 yards and adding 15 touchdowns.
