Featured Game | UNLV Rebels vs Fresno State Bulldogs
Why Fresno State can cover
Quarterback Jake Haener is coming off his best game of the season. In last week’s 55-13 victory over Hawaii, the sixth-year senior completed 24-of-29 passes for 327 yards and a season-high four touchdowns while not throwing an interception. For his efforts he was named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week.
In addition, Fresno State is one of the most disciplined teams in college football. The Bulldogs rank ninth in the country in penalties per game (4.2) and 14th in penalty yards per game (39.3). Last week the team was penalized only once, the third game this season in which Fresno committed only one penalty.
Why UNLV can cover
UNLV has playmakers in the secondary. The Rebels lead the conference and rank seventh in the country in interceptions (13) this season. Cameron Oliver and Nohl Williams lead the defense with three interceptions apiece. That bodes well against a Fresno State offense that has thrown nine interceptions this season.
In addition, UNLV has a tackling machine in Austin Ajiake. A 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior, Ajiake ranks second in the conference and eighth in the FBS in tackles per game (10.7). He also ranks second on the team in sacks (4.5).
