Nev. coach Ault: NV-Boise St. rivalry probably coming to end

By Associated Press. CREATED Nov 29, 2012

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada coach Chris Ault says Saturday's season finale against Boise State will probably be the last game between the long-time rivals.

The Broncos beat the Wolf Pack 17-10 the first time they played in 1971 in the Big Sky Conference and lead the all-time series 25-13. The two competed in the Big West and Western Athletic conferences before making the jump to the Mountain West.

Boise State moves to the Big East next year and Ault says that means the rivalry has probably run its course. He told the Reno Gazette-Journal the Wolf Pack have a number of teams they'd like to play and already have filled most their schedule the next three years.

Nevada's all-time winningest coach has an overall record of 8-17 against Boise, his worst against anyone.
