Nevada Postgame Notes
The Wolf Pack now holds a 19-15 all-time advantage in the series.
With 240 yards on the ground, sophomore quarterback Colin Kaepernick recorded the first 200-yard rushing game of his career. He is the ONLY quarterback in Nevada history to rush for more than 200 yards in a game and becomes the 14th player in Nevada history to rush for 200 or more yards. His 240 rushing yards marks the ninth best single-game performance in school history
Kaepernick had three rushing TDs on the night. He now has seven on the season and 13 in his career.
Kaepernick completed 11-of-16 for 176 yards and two touchdowns. He accumulated 416 yards of total offense.
Vai Taua recorded the second 100-yard rushing game of his career, finishing with 19 carries for 123 yards and one touchdown.
This is the first time Nevada has had two players rush for at least 100 yards in a game since Kaepernick (136) and Luke Lippincott (143) did it against New Mexico State last season.
Virgil Green hauled in a 40-yard TD pass from Kaepernick in the second quarter the first touchdown of the sophomore’s career.
Courtney Randall’s 7-yard TD run in the second quarter was his first score of the year.
Five different players scored touchdowns for Nevada.
Punter Brad Langley booted a career-long 77-yard punt in the first quarter that went in for a touchback, resulting in a career-best 57-yard net.
Starter changes: Ryan Coulson at DE (instead of Dontay Moch); Doyle Miller at CB (instead of Mike Evans); Dominic Green moved to C (instead of Josh Catapano) with John Bender at G (in place of Green).
