Wolf Pack Moves Up In Rankings
RENO, Nev. – Coming off a 35-34 come-from-behind victory at Fresno State on Saturday night, the Nevada football team moved up in all of the major national polls and rankings on Sunday.
In the Bowl Championship Series standings, Nevada moved up to No. 18 nationally. The Wolf Pack is the third-highest ranked team among non-BCS schools in the standings this week. This marks the highest Nevada has ever been in the BCS as the Wolf Pack was No. 21 in the standings last week.
The Wolf Pack made its biggest move the week in the USA Today Coaches Top 25 and the Harris poll as the Nevada moved three spots up to No. 18 in both rankings this week. This marks the highest Nevada has ever been ranked in the history of the coaches poll and in the short history of the Harris Poll. Both polls are included in the BCS standings.
In the Associated Press poll, Nevada moved up two spots from No. 21 to No. 19. This matches the Wolf Pack’s highest ranking of the year in that poll (week of Oct. 10).
After back-to-back road game, Nevada comes home for the final two games of the season at Mackay Stadium. First up is New Mexico State at 1:05 p.m. on Saturday. The game will not be televised and tickets are still available at www.nevadawolfpack.com or by calling (775) 348-PACK.
