Football: Boise St. shocked by Nevada

RENO, Nev. (AP) — For two years, Boise State won every time it took the field. The Broncos had to, if they wanted to be considered a serious team that could one day possibly compete for the BCS title.

When the inevitable loss came, it hurt in more ways than the Broncos could count.

No national title game. No BCS bowl. No grudging respect from the big boys in the big conferences.

"I'm at a loss for words," said quarterback Kellen Moore, who suffered only his second loss in 38 games as Boise State's quarterback. "Hopefully we'll learn something from this."

The first thing the Broncos will learn is that things aren't fair when you're on the outside looking in. But Boise State already knew that even if they ran the table with a second straight undefeated season.

Nevada made sure that wouldn't happen, thanks to a huge second half on the ground and two missed kicks by a normally reliable kicker.

"It's one of those games that usually we have been fortunate to pull some things out and this time we just couldn't do it," Boise State coach Chris Petersen said.
