Tied for 1st in the Mountain West
The parity in the Mountain West bit the Nevada Wolfpack hard on Wednesday as they lost to Utah State 74-57. The result means Boise State and Nevada are tied atop the Mountain West men's college basketball rankings each 7-3 in league.
It was another message to league players that on any given night...watch out! It also means another huge game at Taco bell arena Saturday as the Broncos host the same Utah State team they beat earlier this year in Logan but an Aggie squad coming off an impressive win over Nevada.
Plus while Boise State has been successful on the road in the Mountain West, they've struggled lately at home losing two in a row. Nevada is idle Saturday meaning the Broncos can take over sole possession of first place with a win. Tipoff at 6 p.m.
