COLUMBIA - There were high expectations for the Nevada football team before the season. The 2008 team finished 5-3 in the Western Athletic Conference. The league's coaches predicted the team would build on that record and finish second in the league behind Boise State, which is ranked No. 8 in the country in this week's Associated Press poll.
Although the team has yet to play a conference game, at 0-2 Nevada's season is not going according to plan. It opened the season with a 35-0 loss at Notre Dame and followed with a 35-20 loss at Colorado State. The Wolf Pack had five turnovers in the Colorado State loss.
"All five of them, well with the exception of one, were due to our poor ability to hold onto the ball or throw it correctly," Nevada coach Chris Ault said in his Monday teleconference.
