Barry Odom vs Jim Harbaugh
UNLV Rebels opened their 2023 season in style against Bryant University with an emphatic 44-14 win, leaving no room for doubt that they could control all aspects of play and assert their dominance on every front. This performance showed off their unmatched skills of taking control and dominating every facet of play in an all-around performance.
Doug Brumfield led UNLV’s offense efficiently, passing for 86 yards and one touchdown through precise passing from quarterback Doug Brumfield in the pocket and precise passing – two key components to its success. However, UNLV’s ground game also played an instrumental role, led by Vincent Davis with 79 rushing yards and one score.
An impressive feat by the Rebels was their efficient ball movement. Even with limited possession time (only 19 minutes and 46 seconds), they achieved 283 rushing yards at an impressive average pace of 6.4 yards per play and made nine out of 15 third-down conversion attempts, highlighting their offensive prowess.
UNLV has struggled on the road in September, losing eight out of their last nine. But their record in covering spreads in non-conference road games speaks for itself – covering at every game this month alone. UNLV road openers have seen an unexpected trend: each of their last four has fallen UNDER the total points line, setting expectations. Michigan Wolverines Make Impressive Debut
Michigan Wolverines Kick Off Season with Dominant Win Against East Carolina
On the other side of the field, Michigan began its season in dramatic fashion against East Carolina. They quickly asserted their dominance, taking a commanding 23-0 lead into halftime. Their quarterback JJ McCarthy put on an outstanding performance by throwing for 280 yards and three touchdowns while connecting seamlessly with Roman Wilson who led their receiver corps with six receptions for 78 yards.
Michigan’s defense also made an impressionful statement against East Carolina’s overpowered offense, limiting them to only 235 total yards (132 in the air) while averaging an impressive 4.3 yards per play and holding them to only 12 first downs. East Carolina struggled further due to penalties; 10 infractions totaling 88 yards compounded their troubles.
The Wolverines’ decisive win highlighted their ability to maintain control on both sides of the ball throughout the match and remain dominant.
