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.
