RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Its game week again for Nevada. The Wolf Pack rested after its late season bye, and hoping to pick up where things left off, as Colorado State comes to town.
Coach Jay Norvell did reiterate he'd prefer an earlier bye week, and for good reason, his team's won two straight games & continues to show growth as the year goes on.
But if the Pack's formula to success holds true, Nevada should have no problem regaining its rhythm come saturday.
"We're going to do exactly what we've been doing. We know why we're getting better. I showed the team 29 categories statistically, we're better in almost every area. The reason we're getting better is because of the way we practice. Because we focus on what we need to do every day, because we stay focused. We're going to coninue that," Norvell said.
Senior quarterback Ty Gangi added "after a bye week, it's tough not to slack or relax. We gotta keep getting better, last week in practice and keep it going this week. Just really paying attention to details and focusing on the little things."
Senior linebacker Malik Reed said "I feel like it's better to be fresh than to keep pounding away at the body. Then you start losing guys at the end. It was a good thing for us to have a little rest at the end. The focus is still there, we're ready to play. Nothing's going to change."
it'll be the final battle at home for Nevada's seniors, a group which has "gotten right" this season says Coach Norvell. They have a chance to finish their careers strong, as the Wolf Pack faces a very favorable end of the year schedule, we could be talking 8 or 9 wins if all goes well, but it starts here Saturday night against the Rams.
