Boise State plays for a seventh-straight season of double-digit wins on Saturday.
The Boise State Broncos travel to play the Nevada Wolf Pack on Saturday in Reno to cap off the 2012 regular season and to play for a share of the Mountain West Conference championship.
At 6-1 in conference play, a win would secure Boise State a share of the MWC title with Fresno State and San Diego State. With a 9-2 overall record, a win would also guarantee the Broncos' seventh straight season of ten or more wins. The Boise State defense holds opponents to just 14.4 points per game, fifth-best in the country.
Nevada, already locked in to the New Mexico Bowl, looks to play spoiler once again to Boise State. The Wolf Pack is 7-4 on the strength of its consistently strong run game. Stefphon Jefferson has racked up 1,564 rushing yards, while quarterback Cody Fajardo has added 900 of his own to power the seventh-best run game in the country.
Boise State leads the all-time series between the schools, 25-13.
