BOISE--  The Boise State Broncos (4-2) will once again take on the Nevada Wolf Pack (3-3) on Saturday.  It will be the 40th time the two teams have played each other, dating back to 1971.  Lately, the Broncos have had the advantage, winning 12 of the last 13 matchups.

But this year’s Nevada team could feature a different look, as first-year head coach Brian Polian replaces Chris Ault.  The Broncos believe Polian’s Pack will feature a similar “pistol” offense, with a few differences.

“It's different than it was last year with Coach Ault not being there,” Boise State head coach Chris Petersen said on Monday.  “They've kind of expended some things and added some things to the run game.  Certainly the way that Cody can run the ball is different.”

“You've just got to be ready for everything on every play, and just make sure you're playing your job and keeping your leverage,” junior linebacker Corey Bell said.

When the Broncos face the Wolf Pack at home, they will do so riding some momentum.  Boise State picked up its first road win of the season against Utah State over the weekend, and the Broncos are currently on a two game winning streak.

Kickoff between the Broncos and the Wolf Pack is set for 6:00 p.m. at Bronco Stadium.
