Sheraton Hawaii Bowl Betting: Nevada vs. Southern Miss

December 30, 2011 NCAA College Football Betting

The sportsbook has its eyes on this game as well with Southern Miss at -6 with the over/under at 62.

Nevada comes into Honolulu with a 7-5 overall record and a 5-2 record good enough for second place in the WAC.  The Wolf Pack have gone 0-2 against ranked opponents this season. Nevada’s power doesn’t come through the air; it comes straight at their opponents with a 251.8 rushing yards per game average.  That average is ranked 6th in the nation and coupled with their passing, the Wolf Pack average 522.8 yards of total offense per game which also ranks 6th nationwide.


Average offense for the Wolf Pack is 32.9 points per game while they give up 25.3 points per game on defense.  Nevada is now in their third different stint with legendary hall of fame head coach Chris Ault. Heading Ault’s pistol offense is a double-fisted attack with freshman QB Cody Fajardo and senior QB Tyler Lantrip. Senior WR Rishard Matthews has been lights out all year with his 91 receptions ranking 9th in the nation. Check the College Football Odds for Nevada vs. Southern Miss game.

Southern Miss has had a phenomenal year with an 11-2 overall record with a 6-2 1st place showing in Conference USA.  They’ve played one ranked team this season and soundly beat undefeated #6 Houston 49-28 a couple of weeks ago and dashed the Cougars chance for a BCS bowl game in the process. The head coaching spot at Southern Miss is a lame duck position as Larry Fedora is coaching his final game with the Golden Eagles.  Fedora was named the new head coach of the North Carolina Tar Heels on December 9th; he has managed a 33-19 record over his four years in Hattiesburg.

Senior QB Austin Davis leads Southern Miss behind center.  Freshman RB Jamal Woodyard is dependable on the ground while senior WRs Ryan Balentine and Kevin Bolden are always a potential deep threat.
