Week 0 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the Nevada Wolf Pack and New Mexico State Aggies. Ken Wilson enters his first season as the Nevada head coach following the Wolf Pack going 8-5 overall last fall, ending their season with a 52-24 blowout loss against Western Michigan at the Quick Lane Bowl.

New Mexico State also has a new bench boss as Jerry Kill takes over. The Aggies could use a fresh start after being one of 2021's worst independent schools, going 2-10 in their 12 games.

Nevada vs New Mexico State Prediction & Pick

When it comes to facing Nevada, wins have been tough to come by for New Mexico State. The Aggies have lost 14 of their 16 all-time head-to-head matchups against the Wolf Pack, including a one-sided 55-28 defeat in Week 6 of the 2021 NCAAF season.

Both teams should have some growing pains with new head coaches, but history points in Nevada's favor here. The Aggies still have a lot to prove when it comes to them showing that they can be better than last year, making a Wolf Pack victory the likely outcome.

Final Score Prediction: Nevada: 41 | New Mexico State: 25

History shows that Nevada usually has the better of New Mexico State and I don't expect that to be any different on Saturday. While an outright victory doesn't provide much value, the Wolf Pack have secured 12 of their 14 all-time victories over the Aggies by at least nine points, meaning they shouldn't have issues covering the spread.

Bet: Nevada -8.5 (-110)
