Nevada Las Vegas ruins winless season with victory

Steve Harvey's college bottom 10.

September 29, 2010

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.
