TRENDS AND ANGLES

UNR has won the past five meetings and leads series 20-15.

UNLV has not led the series since 1991.

UNR is off to its best start in the Football Bowl Subdivision, which it entered in 1992.

REBELS TO LOOK FOR

RB Channing Trotter

UNLV’s injury issues at running back put onus on him to be durable and produce. He needs to improve on his 3.7 rushing average.

DE Daniel Mareko

Had 1½ sacks against New Mexico and will be key to keeping UNR’s option from getting to the edge.

WLB Starr Fuimaono

He is the player with the best chance to cause disruption with UNR’s offense.

PACK TO LOOK FOR

QB Colin Kaepernick

UNLV still hasn’t figured out how to tackle Kaepernick, who has 797 yards of total offense in the teams’ past two meetings.

RB Vai Taua

His 5.6 ypc average is impressive but is overshadowed by Kaepernick’s 8.1.

MLB James-Michael Johnson

Leads Wolf Pack in tackles (31), tackles for loss (3½) and sacks (2½).
