The Rebels have lost three straight games after beginning the season 2-2. UNLV will look to make Las Vegas proud with a huge statement game against Fresno.
Fresno State has won four straight games after losing back-to-back games to nationally ranked Alabama and Washington.
The Rebels are heavy road underdogs against a really good Fresno State squad. It’s been a tough season for the Rebels, but they have battled tough the past two weeks following a beatdown against San Diego State.
UNLV’s offense has been solid this year, averaging 30 points per game and over 440 yards of total offense. As good as the offense has been at times, the defense has been truly awful.
The Rebels allow nearly 500 yards per game to go along with 36 points. UNLV will struggle to contain Fresno State’s rushing attack
On offense, UNLV will rely heavily on Lexington Thomas. The junior has been fantastic this year, rushing for 877 yards on 118 carries and 12 touchdowns.
The Rebels will also feature a quarterback who thoroughly enjoys running the ball. Armani Rogers, a freshman, has experienced some growing pains throwing the ball, but he’s been effective on the ground, rushing for 535 yards for six touchdowns.
Fresno State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs have a great opportunity to pick up their fifth straight win Saturday night against a conference opponent. Fresno State had a terrific performance from running back Josh Hokit as he ran for three touchdowns in the big win over San Diego State
Fresno State’s offense has averaged 32 points per game. It’s both rushing and passing that’s been effective for the Bulldogs.
Marcus McMaryion has been efficient throwing the ball. He hasn’t had any crazy stats, but he’s thrown seven touchdowns to only one interception while completing 65 percent of his passes.
Fresno State will be challenged by an up and coming UNLV offense. The Rebels have played well offensively the year, but the defense has been an issue.
The Bulldogs do have a solid defense, allowing opponents to score on average 17.6 points per game. Opponents, however, have been able to get decent yardage on the Bulldog defense. It’s key that Fresno State continues to do a great job of playing solid defense in the red zone.
