3) Nevada Wolf Pack: (1-0)
The Nevada Wolf Pack began play beating the Eagles of Eastern Washington 49-24 at Mackay Stadium in Reno, Nevada. Colin Kaepenick paced the Wolf Pack throwing 26 times for 306 yards, two touchdowns and also carried the ball 11 times amassing an additional 60 yards with another two touchdowns.
Receiver Virgil Green snatched seven passes collecting 144 yards and rewarded with two trips into the end zone.
In the third quarter, Eastern Washington pulled to within 35-24, but Nevada’s 553 total yards of offense to the Eagles 432 was too strenuous to overcome in the end. On top of Kaepernick’s 311 yards, Nevada continued its torrid running attack eating up 211 yards led by Vai Taua and Lampford Mark’s 103 yards and three touchdowns to compliment Kaepernick’s fabulous footwork.
The Wolf Pack remain at home in their next contest to butt helmets with the Colorado State Rams who lost to the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday.
