sharie johnson)) nothing likefight night in las vegas.... chris maathuis here with more. ((chris maathuis)) that's the thing about las vegas, it can be a huge fight or an average one... but when it's held in vegas.. it's suddenly a big deal. so we start with the ufc. the fighters have completed all their obligations.. the only thing left is to fight. they all jumped on the scale yesterday... and it's funny to see the different reactions from the fighters after their weight is announced. some, in fact most have a smile... they nearly all flex. some look impressive, some don't. some of the fighters don't do much at all... others pull a face. a few act like it's just another day... a few seemed surprised they actaully made weight. it's all part of the fight game, all part of the show. most importantly it's all a lot of fun. now to the main event...
5:17 pm
will fight for the welterweight crown. if you're wondering how they this is it... and they both made weight. (( ))announcer; "169-, 169 for mr. condit.... 170, 170 for the champion carlos condit/ufc challenger; "i've and his skills... this is an incredible opportunity for me and a highlight of my career. robbie lawler/champ: "carlos is a heck of a fighter a fierce fighter, but i'm here to stay, i'm the champ and im going to showcase it that i'm the best in the world, c'mon guys lets do this." the main event is scheduled to tonight.... we'll hopefully have highlights for you tonight at 11. see if lawler retains his crown... condit says this is the fight of his life... a chance to become a ufc champion. ((chris maathuis)) the runnin' rebels lost earlier in the week to an average fresno state team. so maybe they catch a break by not playing this weekend... or maybe it's not a break and they wish they could get right back on the court. anyway, unlv has the night off... other schools are playing... too bad half the moutain west
5:18 pm
but we can show ya this one.... there are a few unr fans living in las vegas. but in reno, not many fans showing up for today's game against wyoming. the two schools have met 15 times... cowboys have won 13....maybe that's why. wyoming leading 37-34 at the half and they're 4-1 when leading after the first 20 minutes second half.. wolfpack comes up with a couple of early steals and blocks and they're off to the races... they jumped out to a nine point lead. but now under 30 to play and leading one... it's marqueze coleman hitting the three and the pack hangs on to beat the cowboys 71-68. they're unbeaten 6-0 at home. in the taxslayer bowl from jacksonville, it's penn state and georgia. how about having one of the busch brothers drive in for the las vegas bowl. the bulldogs have a pretty good team... and terry godwin is a pretty good player. he threw a 44 yard t-d pass and then later he caught a 17 yarder on a trick play. georgia jumps out to a big lead. but they had to survive this hail mary at the end... one more chance for the nittany lions...
5:19 pm
and in the taxslayer game... the bulldogs slay the lions 24-17 for their 5th straight bowl win. ((chris maathuis)) i'm kind of interested in the outcome of the alamo bowl... it's oregon and tcu. remember the horned frogs quarterback trevone boykin was in jail a few days ago for punching a cop... he posted bail and was sent home... so he won't play, but still should be an excting shootout. then later tongiht it's west virginia and arizona state. and sharie will be back with more after this.... now, nevada's first choice for

holiday. but it is the "official" birthday of prolific science fiction writer isaac asimov . an avid writer... he penned as many as ten books a year, according to biography-dot- com. he's most famous for coining the term "robotics." science fiction enthusiasts most likely know it was asimov who conceived the "posi-tronic brain." t-v shows "dr. who" and "star trek: the next generation" ran with the idea./// ((sharie johnson)) > that's it for us. join us again at 6:00.///
