SAN DIEGO ST over Ne­vada by 20

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Miami Florida Over -

We’re sure 1st-year Ne­vada head coach Jay Norvell can’t wait for this sea­son to end. Pre­vi­ous head man Brian Po­lian was given the boot at Reno af­ter a 4-year stint that pro­duced two bowl ap­pear­ances but an over­all SU record of just 23-27. Then Norvell comes in and en­gi­neers a 2-8 ef­fort so far in 2017. Which has Ne­vada fans ask­ing: if Connecticut and Kansas State could bring coaches Randy Ed­sall and Bill Sny­der back for a sec­ond tour of duty, could the Wolf Pack lure back the great Chris Ault for a fi­nal run? Prob­a­bly not, but they can dream. His for­mer squad shows up on the left coast tonight hav­ing laid a 1-5 SU and 1-4-1 ATS se­ries egg in the last five go-rounds with San Diego State, not to men­tion a sorry af­ter scor­ing more than 45 points (put 59 on the board last week ver­sus hap­less San Jose State). As for vet­eran head coach Rocky Long and his Aztecs, they’re still one game back of Fresno State in the MWC West but don’t hold the tie-breaker, so their chances of re­peat­ing as West champs look fairly bleak. They are, how­ever, an in­cred­i­ble in games against los­ing foes since 2014 – plus coach Long is the an­swer to this week’s

on page 2. That, and an op­por­tu­nity for SDSU to move up in the bowl hi­er­ar­chy, puts the Aztecs on our ticket tonight.
