NCAA Game Summary - U-N-L-V at Nevada

(Saturday, October 8th)

Final Score: Nevada 37, UNLV 0

Reno, NV (Sports Network) - Tyler Lantrip threw for 366 yards to lead the Nevada Wolf Pack in a 37-0 rout of the UNLV Rebels in a non-conference tussle at Mackay Stadium, marking the first time Nevada posted a shutout of its instate rival.

Lantrip completed 18-of-29 pass attempts and threw three touchdowns in the win for Nevada (2-3), with Rishard Matthews representing his favorite target. Matthews hauled in 10 passes for 220 yards and a score during the meeting, while Shane Anderson grabbed five balls for 92 yards and a touchdown as well. Stefphon Jefferson led the Nevada ground attack with 100 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries, while Mark Lampford added 75 yards and a touchdown of his own.

In all, the Wolf Pack rolled up 699 yards of total offense, including 459 yards through the air.

It was an extremely difficult day for the UNLV (1-4) offense, as it managed just 110 total yards. Signal-caller Caleb Herring completed just one pass for eight yards in 14 attempts, while Dionza Bradford represented the Rebels' lone source of consistency, gaining 79 yards on the ground via 18 carries.

The Wolfpack earned a 3-0 advantage with a 29-yard Allen Hardison field goal late in what was an otherwise quiet opening quarter of play.

The Wolfpack opened things up in the second stanza however, earning a 20-0 halftime edge with a pair of Lantrip scoring passes. Lantrip first connected with Matthews midway through the frame on a 90-yard hookup, and then found Corbin Louks with a 34-yard strike. Nevada then ended the half with a 41-yard Hardison field goal.

Hardison connected from 22 yards away late in the third quarter, extending the Nevada advantage to 23-0.

A 32-yard TD pass from Lantrip to Shane Anderson early in the final period of play gave the Wolfpack a 30-0 lead, while a four-yard run by Lampford late in the frame accounted for the final score of the meeting.

It marked Nevada's seventh straight win in the series with UNLV.
