Reno Evening Gazette Monday, November 5, 197917 Pack prepares for Boise State showdown By DON COX - On the-flight home after Saturday's 38-26 win at Idaho, University of Nevada-Reno players and coaches didn't spend much time discussing their effort of a few hours before. Instead, they talked about this week's Big Sky Conference football game against Boise State. Sunday, Wolf Pack head coach Chris Ault gave the meeting with Boise State a name. "Now we have to get ready for the big showdown," he said. Certainly, the UNR-Boise State match at Mackay Stadium has all the makings of a showdown. On paper, the Pack and Broncos are the Big Sky's strongest teams, Boise State, with an 8-1 overall record, has won eight straight games since losing its season opener to Long Beach State. The latest win in the string was Saturday's 44-7 thrashing of defending league champion Northern Arizona. UNR is 6-2 for the season. In Big Sky play, the Broncos are 6-0 and the Pack stands 4-1. Given all those numbers, the Bronco-Pack game should decide the league title. But it won't. Boise State isn't eligible to win the 1979 crown and pre-season favorite UNR is out of the running. The title race, in fact, is over. Montana State, which handed UNR its lone conference loss, 12-10, last month, beat arch-rival Montana, 38-21, Saturday to complete its league season at 6-1. UNR can finish with the same Big Sky record by beating Boise State and Northern Arizona. But Montana State is still declared the conference champ based on its win over UNR. Boise State, of course, can finish its Big Sky season unbeaten with a win against the Pack. The Broncos beat Montana State, 14-0. But conference athletic directors and presidents eliminated the Broncos before this season started when they penalized Boise State for illegal scouting prior to a game against Northern Arizona last year. So, their meeting will take on something of a bittersweet nature for Boise State and UNR. Despite its elimination from the league title race, Ault thinks the Pack has a chance to qualify for this year's NCAA Division I-AA playoffs by winning its last three games for a 9-2 record. "I'm going directly by the NCAA manual," said Ault Saturday night. "Selection is based on overall record, competition and eligibility of players." The best Montana State can finish is 7-3, provided the Bobcats win their regular season final at North Dakota State this weekend. Ault's own personnel received a few bumps and bruises at Idaho. Starting linebacker Travis Harper left the game in the second quarter after twisting an ankle and nose guard Bill Gravert was sidelined with a bruised knee in the second period. Starting guard and offensive captain Roberto Selden injured his right knee in the third quarter. Ault was awaiting medical reports on the trio Sunday. The injuries allowed several reserves to distinguish themselves against the Vandals. Sophomore Steve Knapp filled in for Harper and returned a pass interception 82 yards in the fourth quarter for UNR's final touchdown. He was also in on nine tackles, including two for loss. Freshmen Melvin Gentry and Dee Manson split time at nose guard. Gentry was involved in five tackles and Manson was in on seven. "The bench came and played," said Ault. "Gray (reserve wing-back Allen) did a great job. Steve Worman (backup split end) played well." Gray caught two passes for 32 yards and Worman caught two for 21 yards from his older brother Larry at quarterback. Sophomore Todd Wilcks, who missed several games with a foot injury, filled in for Selden. While fullback Frank Hawkins was UNR's biggest rushing star with 217 yards on 29 carries, reserves Mike Quilici and Rene Val-lejo also ran well. Quilici, a junior fullback, gained 43 yards on 10 carries for a 4.3 yards-per-try average. Vallejo rushed five times for 35 yards. His longest gain was 23 yards. Although Russ Musselman wasn't at practice four days last week and didn't make the trip to Idaho, the junior defensive end hasn't officially quit the team, according to Ault. Ault said Musselman hasn't discussed the situation with him or any assistant coaches . If I LJ STEVE KNAPP Big play man Sports line 323-4422 Skid stopped AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - "In football there's most always a winner and a loser." . It was Lou Saban, head coach of the Army football team, speaking after his Black Knights had been soundly defeated by the Air Force Academy 28-7 Saturday afternoon. But if losing was a bitter pill for Saban to swallow, winning was extra sweet for Air Force Coach Ken Hatfield. It was his first victory in nine tries as a head coach. It was the first victory for the Falcons in 12 games, ending the longest current losing streak in major college football. It was a victory over Army, an arch-rival military academy team and the one that started the Falcons' string of consecutive losses. LEASE CI3ECT Why pay a Middleman LEASE FROM THE DEALER!
