Broncos Notes: The Broncos suffered a setback last week in their hunt to resume their post as champions of the Mountain West Conference championship.

Senior quarterback Brett Rypien had perhaps his most challenging game of his career, completing 21 of 41 passes for 170 yards with two interceptions. Alexander Mattison rushed 25 times for 66 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Four receivers caught at least three passes on the day, led by Sean Modster's 4 grabs for 44 yards.
Wolf Pack Notes: The Wolf Pack ran into a brick wall at home last week to Fresno St. Their 21-3 loss did nothing to help their chances to earn a bid in the Mountain West Championship game. Still, a home win over the vulnerable Broncos could set them back on track. Cristian Solano started his first game for Nevada last week, and went 22 of 43 for 195 yards with three interceptions. He rushed 23 times for 71 yards. Kaleb Fossum led the Wildcats in receiving with 12 receptions for 97 yards, while McLane Mannix caught four balls for 55 yards.
