Las Vegas – The Rebels lose another one on the road. The Rebels were in Boise on the blue turf trying to avoid their 19th straight road loss, but couldn’t get it done as number 22/24 Boise State hammered the Rebels 32-7.
The Broncos rolled up 394 yards on offense, but it was another dominating performance by the defense that made things difficult for UNLV (1-7, 1-2).
Boise State held the Rebels to 210 total yards, had two sacks and three turnovers, including a 16-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Jerrell Gavins that gave the Broncos a 25-0 lead at the half.
UNLV’s only score came in the fourth quarter when Boise State’s backup quarterback Grant Hedrick fumbled and Kenneth Penny picked up the ball and ran 30 yards for a touchdown. The Rebels are back on the road next week to take on the San Diego State Aztecs.
