We have reached week three of the college football season and in this game it’s a non conference showdown. In this game the UNLV Rebels make the trip to Ryan Field to take on the Northwestern Wildcats.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2001.
The UNLV Rebels started off the season strong beating a bad Southern Utah 56-23, but the second game might be a better representation of who they actually are.
They took on Arkansas State in the last game and it was the defense that was terrible giving up 43 points and that led to a blowout loss.
This defense is bad, but there are also some questions on offense including what they will do with the quarterback. Junior Armani Rogers was okay in the first game, but in the second game he only threw for 42 yards and one interception.
This is a run first team, but if they want to have success they are going to need t better play going forward from the quarterback position.
In this game the defense is going to need to be better and they need to get off to a fast start. If they get out to a slow start, this game will be a blowout.
On the other side of this matchup is the Northwestern Wildcats who have only played one game so far this year and they can’t be happy with the outcome.
They took on the Standford Cardinal and the offense had all kinds of trouble moving the ball scoring only seven total points.
At quarterback the Wildcats are led by Sophomore Hunter Johnson who was a high recruit but struggled throwing only 55 yards and two interceptions.
On the defensive side this is a good team, and they gave up only 17 points in the first game of the season. In this game they need to slow down the run the first and go from there.
This really should be a lyup game for the Wildcats and if they don’t win in blowout fashion, there is going to be some concern.
