Its rivalry week for Boise State as they will square off against longtime rival Nevada on the blue on Saturday.  It's been 20 years since Nevada has beaten Boise State on the blue.

This season Nevada has struggled as they enter Albertsons Stadium with a 1-7 record.

It's been series that spans five decades and four different conferences and five of the team's' last eight games have been decided by a touchdown or less.

Coach Harsin says with all the history around this game it's been circled on the calendar since the schedule was released and they aren't looking ahead to Colorado State.

"Boise State Nevada that's a big game.  That's a rivalry game that's the game everybody looks forward to.  That's a game you want to play in.  That's a game over the years that's been really good. 

 If you start looking ahead if we start thinking about other games or teams start thinking about other games you will get beat that I will guarantee you," said Head Coach Bryan Harsin.
