Lippincott Needs Surgery, Out For Bowl Season

By  | 

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada running back Luke Lippincott is out for the bowl season because of a broken toe.

Football coach Chris Ault says the senior suffered the injury Nov. 21 against New Mexico State.

Lippincott played in Nevada's 44-33 loss Friday at Boise State. But Ault says he didn't learn until Monday that the team captain would need surgery.

Lippincott served mostly as a back up to Vai Taua this season. He had one carry for 6 yards against Boise State and returned three kickoffs for 78 yards.

The Wolf Pack finished the regular season at 8-4, and 7-1 in the Western Athletic Conference.

The team likely won't know it's bowl prospects until after this weekend's games.
