There are a few reasons that Boise State should be hungering to take on the Wolf Pack in Nevada Saturday. The weather for the game will be great, but with a win the Broncos can grab a share of the Mountain West Conference title, as well as lock up another 10-win season.
And the weather forecast for Reno calls for partly cloudy skies, a few showers but temperatures near 58 degrees. That’s pretty good weather for a December football game.
Boise State enters the game with a 9-2 overall record and 6-1 in conference play. Nevada is 4-3 in conference and 7-4 overall. Fresno State and San Diego State both sit atop the MWC conference standings with 7-1 marks, which Boise State can tie with a win.
But getting past Chris Ault’s Wolf Pack has not always been an easy proposition. The two teams have a long history together, dating back to (then) Division 1-AA and the Big Sky Conference. Boise State leads the series against Nevada, 25-13.
