There are a few things that are very unique to the Arizona Bowl that will be played at Arizona Stadium in Tucson. The game will not be a nationally televised basis via ESPN or ABC and the game will feature two teams from the same conference in the Mountain West as the 6-6 Nevada Wolf Pack face the 7-5 Colorado State Rams. The two teams didn’t play each other during the regular season.
Nevada lost their last two games of the regular season with a 31-14 loss to San Diego State to end their year. Tyler Stewart has passed for 2,065 yards, 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions during the regular season while looking the direction of Hasaan Henderson 50 times for 709 yards and four touchdowns. James Butler has been hard to slow down on the ground with 1,156 yards rushing and eight touchdowns. Nevada would love to find a way to break their losing streak any way possible.
Colorado State won their last four games including a 34-31 win over Fresno State to complete the regular season. Nick Stevens passed for 2,369 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this year and Rashard Higgins had 66 catches for 933 yards and eight scores. Dalyn Dawkins has 805 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground. The Rams finished in a four-way tie for second place in their division of the Mountain West and want to show that they played in the tougher part of the conference and can do that with a win in this game.
