RENO, Nev. (AP) - Some good news for Nevada Wolf Pack fans who
don't have a ticket to Saturday's football game against Boise State.

Officials for ESPN announced today that ESPN2 will carry the game nationally starting at 1 p.m.

The network says it will pick up the feed being produced by the Boise-based KTVB-TV.

Nevada officials expect their first sellout since the Wolf Pack hosted Boise State two years ago. As of this morning, less than 200 tickets remained.

The Broncos are undefeated and ranked ninth in the nation. Nevada is 6-4 overall, tied for second in the Western Athletic Conference with Louisiana State with a record of 4-2.

Nevada closes out the season next Saturday at Louisiana Tech. That game will be carried on ESPN's Game Plan subscription service starting at 11:30 a.m. PST.
