BOISE -- NewsChannel 7's Mark Johnson is reporting a source told him Boise State Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier said during Saturday afternoon's game that if Nevada beats Louisiana Tech, the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl will take Nevada and not Boise State.
That scenario would free up Boise State to go to the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl.
UNR defeated La Tech on Saturday 35-17, setting up Bleymaier's scenario.
As of early Saturday, the Broncos could possibly be penciled into the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl to play the University of Utah, who has already accepted an invite to the game.
The Pacific Life Holiday Bowl had been a possibility, but the University of Washington became bowl eligible after defeating Washington State Saturday night. Their win likely puts them into the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl and increases the likelihood of the Broncos going to the Las Vegas Bowl.
