LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Colorado State and No. 23 Utah will play in the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 20.
Upon further review of further review, the Runnin’ Rebels were apparently short-changed near the end of last Saturday’s loss to Boise State.
Former Boise State assistant Bryan Harsin, after one season as coach at Arkansas State, has accepted an offer to replace Chris Petersen as coach of the Broncos.
The Runnin’ Rebels survived a barrage of three pointers and a ten-point second-half deficit, to win their 14th straight home game, 68-64, over Boise State.
Despite freshman forward Anthony Bennett’s 25 points the Runnin’ Rebels couldn’t pull it out on the road Saturday night, losing to Boise State 77-72.
Boise State will reportedly remain in the Mountain West Conference. According to sources the Broncos will not join the Big East Conference in 2013.
Little Michael Frisina came up big for Boise State, kicking a 27-yard field goal with 1:16 left to give the No. 20 Broncos a 28-26 victory over Washington to win the Las Vegas Bowl for the third straight year.
Boise State, San Diego State and BYU are in talks with Mountain West membership about the possibility of returning to the conference.
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 garnered 27 first-place votes and earned a total of 296 points in a poll of media members. UNLV is predicted to finish ninth.
