We have reached week eight of the college football season and there a couple of games on Friday night.
In this game the UNLV Rebels make the trip to Bulldog Stadium to take on the Fresno State Bulldogs. The visiting team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
The UNLV Rebels have not had a good season but they are coming off quite the impressive win in their last game and they hope they can use that moving forward.
After losing four games in a row and not scoring more than 17 points in any of the games they got back on the right track in a big way. They went on the road to Vanderbilt and put up 34 points, gave up only 10 and pulled off the big upset.
The offense has had their issues, but the biggest issue has been the way the defense has been playing. On the season they are giving up 32.8 points and over 430 yards per game of total offense.
In this game they need to take the momentum from their last game and get off to a fast start. If they get off to a slow start that will spell some big trouble for their chances. The last thing they can have in this game is falling behind early.
Fresno State Bulldogs
On the other side of this matchup is the Fresno State Bulldogs who had high expecations heading into the season but they haven’t lived up to that so far.
They only have two wins so far this year, and even with both of those games they struggled. Against New Mexico State they 21 point favorites and they could only win by 13.
That is one of the worst teams in college football so it’s troubling they struggled that much against them.
At quarterback the Bulldogs are led by Jorge Reyna who has been decent this year throwing for 1,212 yards, nine touchdowns, and four interceptions.
In this game it’s all going to come down to how well the defense can play. If they can slow down the Bulldogs offense they should have no issue in this game.

If this game would have been played a couple of weeks ago there is no doubt I would have picked the Bulldogs and been very confident because of how bad UNLV has been.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Rebels ATS
I liked what I saw out of UNLV against the Commodores and I think they can do enough in this game to keep it close. The Bulldogs will win the game, but the Rebels will cover the spread.
