WHAT'S AT STAKE
The inaugural Arizona Bowl is the first non-playoff bowl to have two teams from the same conference since the
Colorado State's defense vs. Nevada's running game. It's no secret the Wolf Pack like to run the ball. The key is stopping them. Nevada finished top-30 nationally rushing and was one of two teams to have a pair of 1,000-yard rushers. The Rams were 107th nationally at stopping the run, so obviously finding a way to slow Nevada will be vital.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Nevada: LB Ian Seau. The nephew of NFL Hall of Famer
Colorado State: QB
