    Nevada’s third game should be Northwestern State, not Northwestern.

    Seems kind of silly that they didn’t go for the 9-game conference schedule now that there are 10 teams. Whoever got out of playing Boise State really lucked out.

      That was my train of thought, too. But there’s a method to their madness: fewer conference games means more opportunities to schedule quality out-of-conference opponents.
      After next season, though, it’ll all be a moot point.

      I think the reason they skipped the 9th game this year is because most teams had already scheduled 4 OOC games and it’s expensive and a hassle to cancel games.

      As for being lucky for missing Boise State, I don’t think I’d be as thrilled as you make it sound if I’m Air Force. They went to Boise last year and don’t get the home game, which would be an easy sellout and would be televised, so there’s monetary benefit. Also, Boise only has 1 or 2 starters back in the front 7 on defense, I wouldn’t mind making a young defense try and defend the option, and I wouldn’t be upset to see a quarterback not named Kellen Moore. Boise State would be favored regardless, but I wouldn’t mind that opportunity if I’m AFA.

    Actually, SDSU got a bad break. They do not play New Mexico, plus no bye until week 12.Think the MWC is sending them a farewell gift?

    I think that who ever goes up against bsu is going to lose bad without moore.
