Nevada vs. Southern Miss,
12/24/2011 20:00 EDT,
Score: 17 - 24
Point Spread: +9½/-115 Nevada
Southern Mississippi's head coach Larry Fedora has accepted the North Carolina coaching position, but Southern Miss elected to have him coach the team in this bowl game. I'm not really sure that was a wise idea and I'm not really sure that the players will be 100% focused for this game.
We have seen it time and time again when a team rallies around a coach that has been fired, but you have to question the teams motivation when the coach leaves for another school on their own.
Nevada is a very dangerous team and the pistol offense of the Wolfpack will put points on the board with the one two punch of quarterback Cody Fajardo and Tyler Lantrip. The Wolfpack also knows how to focus for a trip to the Islands as this will be their sixth game that they have played here in the last seven years while Southern Miss might be enjoying the warm weather and the beaches a little too much. Take the points with NEVADA here.
