OMG, UNR VS BC AT ATT ON ESPN! Well, here’s the news – the almost-perfect University of Nevada, Reno Wolf Pack (and 10,000 rabid fans from the Silver State) will be a coming to town to take down the Boston College Eagles at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
“Boston College, riding a five game winning streak* to close out the regular season, will face No. 13 Nevada in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl game at AT&T Park. The 7-5 Eagles and 12-1 Wolf Pack will play Sunday, January 9, 2011 with a 6 p.m. /9:00 p.m. EST kickoff. ESPN will televise the game to a nationwide audience.”
“Frankly, I don’t see how Nevada can lose.” Try using that line when you’re chilling at the UNR pre-game party at Pedro’s Cantina.
Here are your Boston College Eagles…
…and here’s that Wolf Pack from Nevada:
*That would match their recent five-game losing streak, would it not?
It’s tough to beat Nevada, which would have had a perfect season if it hadn’t had to play away at Hawaii this year. I mean this is the same team that just beat (eventually) the (former #3) Boise State Broncos, right? There are just too many in the wolfpack, and QB Colin Kaepernick will be sure to connect like NYNEX, unless it’s snowing or there’s some other Act of Gaia going on or something.
All the the deets, after the jump.
