Comments

UNLV has two quarterbacks that have taken significant reps. One is junior Armani Rogers who UNLV leaned on more early in the season. Rogers is a more of a duel threat players with 204 yards rushing. The other QB is freshman Kenyon Oblad. Oblad is more of a Kyle Shurmur type QB. He rarely runs but Shurmur was much more accurate than Oblad. Both QBs are passing at about a 50% completion rate. Vandy should win this one but they can’t afford to take UNLV lightly.
