Why Nevada can cover
Although fifth-year senior Nate Cox and redshirt sophomore Shane Illingworth have split time at quarterback, both have produced decent numbers this fall. Cox, who played against Air Force and completed 60% of his passes for 130 yards, has thrown for 502 yards and two touchdowns on the season with zero interceptions and a rating of 117. He is also mobile, rushing 33 times for 100 yards and three touchdowns. Illingworth has been effective in his time behind center, completing 60.4% of his passes for 234 yards, but has been picked off once and has a rating of 93.7.
Senior running back Toa Taua has already rushed for more than 100 yards in two games this season. He had a season-high 24 carries for 101 yards and a score in a 55-41 loss to Incarnate Word on Sept. 10, and carried 19 times for 109 yards in the season opener at New Mexico State. Against Air Force, he carried only seven times, but rushed for 73 yards and a pair of scores. On the year, he has rushed 85 times for 350 yards (4.1 average) and five touchdowns.
Why Colorado State can cover
Despite that, the Wolf Pack are not a lock to cover the Colorado State vs. Nevada spread. The Rams have some quarterback uncertainty with quarterback Clay Millen (shoulder) considered day-to-day. But they have a competent backup in Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi, who should be able to move the ball if Millen can’t go.
Junior wide receiver Tory Horton is the top target in CSU’s offense, making 23 receptions for 427 yards (18.6 average) and five touchdowns. Horton, who played at Nevada his first two seasons, is coming off a monster game, where he caught three passes for 127 yards (42.3 average) and a score. He has TD scores in three of four games, including a nine-catch, 186-yard and three touchdown performance on Sept. 10 against MTSU. He had six receptions for 69 yards (11.5 average) and a TD in the season opener at Michigan.
