We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Sam Boyd Stadium. The Howard Bison come to Sin City to take on the UNLV Rebels.
This is the first meeting between the teams in recent history.
The Howard Bison did not have a good 2016 season. They finished with a 2-9 record and 10th pace in the Mid-Eastern Athletic.
They made a coaching change in the off season and brought in Mike London to lead the troops, and they hope he will bring different results this year.
Howard hopes to really push the pace on offense and he thinks he has the perfect guy to do it. Freshman Caylin Newton, who is the younger brother of Cam Newton is expected to be the guy under center when the season kicks off against UNLV.
He has said in interviews he is sick of being known as Cam’s little brother. He wants to make his name for himself here and be his own guy.
To win this game the Bison are going to need to play a flawless game, and really get the offense going early and often.
The UNLV Rebels come into this season off a 4-8 season last year 3rd place in the West division of the Mountain West.
But people around this program feel like they have the chance to be special, and a lot of it is going to come down to the quarterback position.
Last year they had a good running game, and they have good wide receivers, but they rotated through three quarterbacks, and all three of them struggled with accuracy at points.
The running game is going to be there again this year, but if the Rebels want to take that next step forward, they need to get things going through the air.
On the defensive side of the ball the secondary is good, but this team needs to do a better job of stopping the run, and getting pressure on the quarterback.
To win this game they need to get better production out of the quarterback. Not only will that help them win this game, but it will show the coaches they can be trusted all season.

I think Mr. Newton will have some early butterflies for Howard. I think that will lead to some silly mistakes early on and that will really hurt their chances.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: There is no line yet. A final score prediction is provided below.
The Rebels will capitalize on the mistakes that howard makes and use them to their advantage.
I think the Rebels will have no issues in this game and win by a pretty wide margin.
