The Nevada football team selected to play in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.  They will likely face a Pac-12 opponent on December 15th at University Stadium in Albuquerque.

“We are happy to welcome Nevada back to the Gildan New Mexico Bowl,” said Jeff Siembieda, Gildan New Mexico Bowl Executive Director. “They are an exciting team having a terrific season and we look forward to hosting Coach Ault and his team for what should be another great bowl week.”

Nevada played in the 2007 New Mexico Bowl, losing to UNM 23-0.  The Wolf Pack is 7-4 overall and 4-3 in league play with one game remaining in the regular season, hosting No. 22 Boise State on Saturday, Dec. 1. Their last game was in Albuquerque on Nov. 17, where the Wolf Pack picked up a 31-24 win over New Mexico. Nevada ranks seventh in the nation in rushing offense and 10th in total offense. They are led by running back Stefphon Jefferson, who is second in the country in rushing.

Possible opponents for Nevada include Arizona, Arizona State, Washington and USC.
