  Who: Nevada Wolfpack (7-5) vs Arizona Wildcats (7-5) Where: Albuquerque, New Mexico When: Saturday December 15th, 1 PM ET TV: ESPN Line: Arizona by 9 Ross: If you like good running backs, this is the game for you. Nevada has Stefphon Jefferson, the #4 rusher in the nation this year, with 1703 yards and 22 TDs on the season. Arizona has Ka'Deem Carey, the #2 rusher in the nation this year, with 1757 yards and 20 TDs on the season. These two teams love to run the ball and in Jefferson and Carey they have two excellent workhorses to carry that load. These teams also like to light up the scoreboard -- both teams averaged around 37 ppg this season -- so this should be a high-scoring affair. Bring it on. I'll go with Arizona to edge out a narrow win thanks to the one-two punch of Carey and QB Matt Scott. ARIZONA 38, NEVADA 35   Kevin: I always like to look at the best win on a teams schedule. I think that says a lot about a team and how they play against higher levels of competition. The best win on Nevada's schedule is a toss up between Cal (3-9), Wyoming (4-8) and New Mexico (4-9). Can you say yikes? Yikes! On the other hand, Arizona has beaten four bowl bound teams (Washington, USC, Oklahoma State and Toledo). Even their win over 5-7 Utah is better than anything on Nevada's resume. Take RichRod in this one as this is an Arizona team that will be looking to finish RichRod's first season with a win and head into 2013 with a little momentum.
