Off their wild and record-setting 4 OT loss to Boise State, Nevada should come away the victors this Saturday afternoon when the Wolf Pack visit the Utah State Aggies.
The Nevada game against Boise State last Sunday night is already an 'instant classic.' It truly was one of the best college football games you'll ever see and despite the four overtime loss to the Broncos, the Wolf Pack have gained a new level of respect.
The big question surrounding Nevada as they face Utah State is do the Wolfpack have enough left in the tank physically and emotionally to handle the Aggies? The extra plays combined with a Sunday night game and a short week are going to make for a tough turnaround. If Nevada is ready, Utah State will have their hands full trying to keep up with freshman quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Making his first start, Kaepernick was outstanding against Boise State. He completed 11-of-26 passes for 243 yards and three touchdowns, adding 14 carries, mostly on designed keepers, for 177 yards and two more touchdowns. Add running back Luke Lippincott to the mix (551 yards and seven touchdowns), and the defensively challenged Aggies could be in for a long day.
