The Wolf Pack prepare to host one of their oldest rivals... the Boise State Broncos. This may or may not be the last time they'll face each other in the same conference since the Broncos are planning to go to the Big East. However, there have been reports saying that Boise State might want to come back to the Mountain West Conference. We won't find that out until later, but what we do know is that this game is very meaningful to both universities.
There is actually a current Wolf Pack coach who has been on the other side. Wolf Pack Defensive Line Coach Barry Sacks was the assistant at Boise State from 1993 to 1996. Yes, he knows the rivalry all too well. When asked to describe the rivalry he said, "It's always going to be heated, it's going to be very hard played, and it's well coached. Those are the three things you'll see on the field on Saturday."
Boise State vs. Nevada at Mackay Stadium Saturday, December 1st. Kickoff is set for 12:30pm.
