Nevada, Colorado State head coaches caught in heated pregame exchange
Colorado State and Nevada squared off on Friday evening in Reno. The Rams entered the game winless with an 0-4 mark, while the Wolf Pack were 2-3 after a loss to Air Force on Sep. 23.
Before the game, things got a little testy between CSU head coach Jay Norvell and Nevada head coach Ken Wilson. As you can see below, the 2 were involved in a fairly animated discussion, with Norvell shown having to be settled down by assistants after yelling something in the direction of Wilson. Eventually, cooler heads did prevail.

As for the game, the Rams won 17-14 on a Michael Boyle 43-yard field goal. It stopped a 10-game losing streak for the Rams dating back to 2021—their last victory coming against New Mexico on Oct. 16, 2021—with Norvell’s first win at the helm of the Colorado State program ironically coming against a Nevada team he led for 5 seasons before taking over in Fort Collins for the fired Steve Addazio.
