College Football Betting Preview: Wyoming Cowboys vs. UNLV Rebels

November 10, 2023

Two of the best teams in the Mountain West will face each other late Friday night when the Wyoming Cowboys travel to Paradise, Nevada to face the UNLV Rebels at Allegiant Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 10:45 PM ET and the game airing on Fox Sports 1 in week 11 of the college football season.

The Wyoming Cowboys have already qualified for a bowl game this season as they enter this game with a record of 6-3 and are tied for 4th place in the Mountain West along with the Boise State Broncos and San Jose State Spartans with the win last week at home against the Colorado State Rams by a score of 24-15 while covering the 6-point spread as a home favorite getting them to the magic number of 6 wins which means Wyoming will make a bowl game for the 3rd season in a row. The Cowboys aren’t likely to make the Mountain West Championship game but could play spoiler in this matchup as the UNLV Rebels are still alive for a spot in the conference championship game.

The UNLV Rebels are one of the most improved teams in the Mountain West this season with a record of 7-2 and a conference record of 4-1 it puts the Rebels in a tie for 2nd place in the Mountain West with the Fresno State Bulldogs. However, UNLV lost to Fresno State in week 9 of the college football season by a score of 24-31 so they will need the Bulldogs to lose another game to qualify for the Mountain West Championship game. The Rebels bounced back from that defeat in week 10 with an impressive performance on the road against the New Mexico Lobos by defeating the Lobos by a score of 56-14 while covering the 15-point spread as a road favorite. The Jayden Maiava to Ricky White connection played a pivotal role in the win as White had eight receptions for 165 yards and two touchdowns in the win against New Mexico.
