With its last visit to Mackay Stadium surely fresh in its mind, Boise State heads to Nevada with plenty at stake again.
Seeking a 12th victory in 13 matchups against the Wolf Pack, the No. 25 Broncos aim for a share of the Mountain West championship Saturday as both schools conclude their regular-season schedules.
Boise State (9-2, 6-1) had taken 10 straight from Nevada by an average of 29.0 points before falling 34-31 in overtime Nov. 26, 2010, ending the then-No. 3 Broncos' hopes of playing in a BCS bowl game. While Boise State got a bit of revenge with last season's 30-10 home win, it's looking for more - and a piece of its first Mountain West title since joining the conference last season.
"If I had my preference, I wish it was wrapped up and it didn't come down to this," said coach Chris Petersen, seeking his fifth league title in seven seasons. "But I think it's good for the programs, I think it's good for college football and I think it will be a hard fought game."
