Representing the Mountain West Conference, Nevada is bowl-bound for the fourth consecutive season under Head Coach Jay Norvell (2-1). The Pack makes its Quick Lane Bowl debut for its 19th appearance in a bowl game in program history (7-11). Nevada has won three of its last four bowl games with victories over Tulane on Dec. 22, 2020 (W, 38-27), Ohio on Jan. 3, 2020 (L, 20-31), Arkansas State in 2018 (W, 16-13, OT), and Colorado State in 2015 (W, 28-23). Nevada finished 5th in the Mountain West Conference after closing the regular season with a 52-10 win at Colorado State on Nov. 27. The eight regular-season wins were the most in a regular-season since the Wolf Pack went 12-1 during the 2010 season, a year that was capped with a 20-13 win over Boston College in the Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco. The Wolf Pack brings the fourth-ranked passing offense in the nation into a bowl game looking for a nine-win season for the first time under Head Coach Jay Norvell.
Representing the Mid-American Conference, Western Michigan went 7-5 overall this season and finished with a 4-4 conference record. The Broncos went 3-1 in non-conference play, with the only setback coming at CFP selection Michigan in the season opener. WMU went on to defeat current ACC Champion Pittsburgh, 44-41, on the road on Sept. 18. The Broncos picked up their second win over a conference champion when they handed Northern Illinois a 42-21 home loss in the final game of the regular season. Head coach Tim Lester is in his fifth year coaching his alma mater, leading the team to its third bowl appearance during his tenure. The Broncos most recent bowl appearances include the 2018 Idaho Potato Bowl and the 2019 First Responder Bowl.
