No Go For Hawai'i? Pack Player Could Be Academically Ineligible For Nevada's Bowl Game

By  | 

RENO, Nev. - Today, the Wolf Pack left for the Hawai'i Bowl, the question is: did all of the players make the trip?

Athletic Director Cary Groth says an unidentified player informed the team earlier in the day he thought he might be in danger of flunking a certain class; making the player academically ineligible for Nevada's season-ending bowl game against Southern Methodist.

Groth says the player and the University were waiting for the final grades to be posted later in the day.

There has been no additional comment made by the University. However, Groth said the school would issue a statement either tonight or tomorrow morning.

Nevada takes on SMU in the Hawai'i Bowl on Christmas Eve. The team is already without senior running back Luke Lippincott (broken toe).
