Nevada gets Extremely lucky once again and defeat Cal 35-34. The run game is impossible to run on offense. More details tonight
The Wolfpack went into Berkeley California knowing that a very fast team was waiting for them. The main story is that for the second time this year our offensive line got cut through like a hot knife through butter. 90% of our runs were blew up 4-6 yards in the backfield. This game got real ugly real fast. Down 13-0 the Wolfpack finally gets on board with a 10 yard TD scramble by SR QB Kaepernick. But once again the Golden Bears just ran through the Wolfpack defense and got on board again with 55 seconds left. Halftime Nevada was down 20-7.
Abandoning the run the Wolfpack strictly stuck with the pass game. A few big plays brought the Wolfpack in range for the lead. Down 33-20 in the 4th quarter caught the Cal defense in an all out blitz for a 49 yard TD pass cutting the deficit to 6.
The defense finally plays some hard nose football and force another punt for one last drive. Kaepernick finds Wimberley for a 56 yard bomb but he fumbles on the 1 yard line and the Golden bears scoop it up. Coach JVIG thought it was game over but.... SR RB Vai Taua lays a HUGE big hit on the Cal defender who decided to try and return the fumble causing the fumble and recovering the fumble on the 25 yard line with 1 min left! On 4th down and goal on the 5 the Wolfpack takes a huge risk and does a toss run to Taua. Taua walks in the endzone untouched for the one point lead.
The game isn't over... Cal drives down the field and reach the Nevada 32 yard line and calls time out with 2 seconds left. They attempt the game winning field goal and had enough leg on the kick but WIDE LEFT!!!!!! Game over 34-33. A missed PAT kick by Cal cost them the game.

Wyoming went in confident against Boise St as they stood tall against Texas for a half last week. They came out with a loss but have alot to be proud of. They lost this one 41-36 as they tried to get an onside kick but couldnt cover the ball to get a chance to make a miracle happen. Game didnt start off very well for the Cowboys as on the first drive they had they were sacked for a safety. They were down 19-10 at halftime and 27-16 after the 3rd quarter when an explosion of scoring happened in the 4th quarter Wyoming ended up with 20 in the 4th and Boise state ended up with 14. The spread offense was in full force in the air Samuel threw for over 550 yards and 4tds but also had 3 picks. If wyoming can cut down on turnovers they could of won against Texas and Boise St oh well there is next year to beat them both
