Bottom Ten contender Nevada Las Vegas was caught looking ahead. The Runnin' Rubble, confidently anticipating a big shellacking by undefeated Nevada this weekend, forgot they also had to lose to New Mexico last Saturday.
Instead, the Rubble emerged victorious, 45-10, thereby ruining their chances for a winless season.
UNLV (1-3) fell to No. 11 while the No. 1 Lost Lobos of New Mexico (0-4) solidified their lead.
No. 2 Western Kentucky (0-4) is idle this week — it's been pretty idle even when it plays — then returns next week with a Bottom Ten crucial against No. 4 Florida International (0-3). You can be sure that wacky Western Kentucky will make use of the extra time by practicing missed tackles and how to throw passes for interceptions.
