Andrew Peasley QB vs. Brendon Lewis QB


Peasley has put together a strong season for Wyoming. He makes quick decisions and has shown good accuracy and touch on his passes. While Peasley doesn’t have elite arm strength, he excels at finding the open man and spreading the ball around to his playmakers. His dual-threat ability also keeps defenses honest. However, Peasley has been turnover-prone on the road. He will need to avoid mistakes against a Nevada defense capable of making big plays.


Lewis has struggled in his first year as Nevada’s starter. His completion percentage is just 55% with 6 interceptions and only 2 touchdown passes. Lewis can make plays with his legs, but he often looks indecisive in the pocket. Too many drives have stalled due to inaccurate throws. Lewis clearly has raw talent, but his decision-making and ball security are works in progress. He will need to show major improvement for Nevada to compete.


NCAAF Odds/Point Spread: Wyoming Cowboys -405, Total Odds:  41 


The Cowboys are nearly two-touchdown favorites on the road. This big spread can be attributed to Wyoming’s strong record against MWC teams and Nevada’s lengthy losing streak. The total is set at just 41 points. This low over/under tells us oddsmakers expect a grind-it-out, defensive battle. Wyoming should control time of possession with their ground game, shortening the contest.
