Boise State vs. Nevada: Broncos seek share of Mountain West Conference title

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE

Chris Peterson's Boise State Broncos can clinch a share of the 2012 Mountain West Conference title with a win over the Nevada Wolf Pack on Saturday.

The Boise State Broncos will end the 2012 regular season on Saturday, when they head to Mackay Stadium to take on the Nevada Wolf Pack.

Boise State enters the game with a 9-2 record, including a 6-1 conference record. The Broncos have an opportunity to finish with a 7-1 conference record with a win over Nevada, which would tie Boise State with both Fresno State and San Diego State atop the Mountain West Conference, giving each school a claim of the 2012 Mountain West Conference title.

A loss, however, would drop the Broncos to third in the conference, and would give Fresno State the title, as the Bulldogs own the tiebreaker over the Aztecs.

Chris Petersen's Broncos will have to stop Nevada's running game, which is seventh-best in the country. The Wolf Pack average 263 yards per game rushing, and are led by Stefphon Jefferson, who has 1,564 rushing yards on the season, with a staggering 20 rushing touchdowns.

Still, Boise State opened the week as 7 1/2-point favorites over Nevada.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. MT. Televised coverage can be found on ABC.
