Triple-option challenge awaits as Nevada opens Mountain West play at Air Force on Friday

Reno Gazette Journal

After smoke disrupted practice times last week, and lightning delayed the Iowa game for several hours on Saturday, the Nevada Wolf Pack has another obstacle in its way.

This time, it’s a road game against the Air Force Falcons’ triple-option offense to open Mountain West Conference play. The game also falls on a Friday night, giving Nevada less time to game-plan for an offense that gives teams fits.

In their series history, Nevada is 2-4 against Air Force, and a major reason why is because the triple-option offense is difficult to prepare for.
