Nevada players and staff members were livid after the team’s loss at Utah State on Saturday night and complained about the treatment by the opponents’ fans, highlighted by an emotional Jordan Caroline breaking some glass.
KUTV’s Jake Edmonds captured video of Caroline smashing the glass to a fire extinguisher. There is lots of cursing and other inappropriate language in the video. You can see staff members complaining to the police for allowing the Utah State fans to touch Nevada’s players after the game.
