3) Nevada Wolf Pack: (2-0)
Colin Kaepernick retired early from last Saturday’s game after posting 402 yards of total offense of his own.
The duel threat Wolf Pack quarterback threw 21/29 for 241 yards and once again his uncanny field presence allowed him to spread the field evenly distributing the ball amongst the Nevada receivers.
Nevada’s main staple of running the ball down the throats of defenders and of course this week was no different. Colin Kaepernick headed the rushing assault with 161 yards off 11 carries, and his backfield counterpart Vai Taua chalked up an additional 118 yards on 15 carries.
As a team, the nation’s near faultless rushing team did it again gaining 376 yards on 46 touches, but since Nevada are so deep, athletics and talented, the Wolf Pack will no doubt reach the top 25 within the next few weeks .
Winning this weekend over the California Golden Bears (assuming the Wolf Pack takes care of business) practically reinsures their first stop in the 2010 top 25 polls. Kick-off is set at 10:00 pm at Nevada’s Mackay .
