Toledo is expected to be the best team in the MAC this season but it is too early to tell. Beating Elon isn’t all that impressive and this program is looking to build towards a trip to Miami at the end of the month.
If they win that one it will get a lot of attention.
Nevada may have lost their opener at Northwestern but they pushed the Wildcats. If they are improved they will be in this game but if it was just first game jitters from Northwestern they might get pushed around in this one, especially on defense.
Toledo was a huge favourite last week against Elon, -45. They only scored 47 so covering the number would have required pitching a shutout. That is just not the way this team is built to win.
They can beat you with one of the best offenses in the country. QB Logan Woodside led FBS in TD passes a year ago.
He did not find the end zone last week but the running game showed no concern over losing Kareem Hunt, who just might start for the Chiefs on Thursday evening.
There is no concern. Woodside put up more than 300 yards in a game that was never in doubt.
The defense only yielded 175 yards but again it was against a FCS team. In most games, including this one, they just need it to slow down the opposition, not stop them.
Nevada Wolf Pack
The Wolf Pack definitely put a scare in Northwestern.
They might have lost by 11 but they were winning into the 4th quarter, easily covering on the road. It bodes well for new coach Jay Norvell.
When you look closer at the numbers Nevada definitely did not dominate but they did a good job bottling up Justin Jackson, one of the best RBs in the Big Ten.
Less so in terms of stifling the passing attack of Northwestern, especially late which could be a problem in this matchup.
Nevada’s offense definitely has some room for improvement off the opener. This season they are getting away from the Pistol formation which they essentially created.
Where the offense really goes will depend on the effectiveness of QB Ty Gangi.
He completed less than 50% of his passes last week. That won’t cut it if they have to play catchup this time around.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
This might be a great spot to pass given the information we have so far but if you are bold I would go with Toledo, on the road. pushed a little harder this week I think they will respond.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Toledo -9.5
Toledo will get their offense going this week. I know they scored 47 points a week ago but they probably should have put up more against a FCS opponent.
It was the exact kick in the pants Rocket’s coach Jason Candle needs for his troops.
Nevada will just not be able to keep pace and once they fall behind the offense will become one-dimensional and struggle even more.
They are hoping to get things squared away before MWC play starts up.
