Coach Leon Rice said that he believes fatigue was a factor when UNLV pulled away in OT. Boise State had rebounded well all game and actually led the Rebels by 1 going into the extra period, but UNLV was able to grab the first 4 rebounds in OT to down the Broncos. It was a great effort by the guys who had lost 6 of their last 8. They face a 16-4 Wyoming team at home on Saturday.
New AD Mark Coyle said a rumored possible matchup with Arkansas in Dallas is "not on our radar". Right now, Boise State has 6 home games and 6 road games scheduled. Obviously we'd all love another home game, just not against Idaho or Portland State.
