Nevada Wolf Pack at Washington State Cougars
- Washington State leads this all-time series 2-1, with the teams last meeting during the 2014 season. The Wolf Pack have dropped their last 10 games versus AP Top 25 opponents, with their last such win coming versus No. 3 Boise State on November 26, 2010.
- Nevada is trying to avoid its first 0-4 start since 1999, when it opened 0-4 on its way to a 3-8 season. The Wolf Pack had seven fumbles against Idaho State last week, losing two of them. They also threw an interception, giving them a total of seven turnovers on the season, compared to just two for their opponents. That -5 turnover differential is tied for sixth worst in the FBS.
- When Kaymen Cureton started against Idaho State last week, he became the first true freshman to start at QB for the Wolf Pack since David Neill in 1998. Cureton threw for three TDs in last week's contest, which is tied for the most by any FBS true freshman in a game this season.
- Washington State is averaging 408.3 yards per game through the air this season while holding opponents to 154.7 passing yards per game. That +253.6 YPG differential is the second-largest margin in the FBS.
- Luke Falk threw for six touchdowns last week, giving him 98 TD passes for his career. With two more scores through the air, Falk could be the first FBS QB to reach 100 passing TDs since Western Kentucky's Brandon Doughty, who recorded his 100th career TD pass on November 21, 2015. Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield (98) is tied with Falk for the most career TD passes by any active FBS player.
