Otherwise, they covered as a 9-point favorite over Wyoming in a 26-7 road victory, as a 7.5-point home favorite in a 49-35 win over UNLV, and as a 3-point fave in a 28-21 win at New Mexico.
On the other side, Nevada lost back-to-back games to close out its season, although the Wolf Pack covered as a 14-point underdog versus Utah State and pushed as a 17-point dog in a 31-14 loss to San Diego State.
