Nevada 49 Eastern Washington 24


Nevada's Offense

Nevada showed a good balanced passing and running attack form the start with  Colin Kaepernick throwing for 306 yards and completing 26 out of 37 passes with 1 TD and 2 rushing TDs as he rushed for 60 yards. Kaepernick connected with 7 different targets averaging around 10 yards a catch.

TE Virgil Green received the ball 7 times for 144 yards and 2 TDs ( 48,40 yards).

Nevada's rushing attack was spread out between 4 different players for a total of 214 yards. Kaepernick 11 carries for 60 yards, Vai Tua 12 carries for 51 yards for 2 TDs, Lampford Mark 7 carries for 52 yards for 1 TD, and Mike Ball 7 carries for 46 yards.

Eastern Washington had a hard time stopping but due to several penalties costing Nevada several drives in the 2nd half.

Nevada's Defense

Nevada's Defense is a different story. Nevada look good most of the game but gave up several big plays to East Washington's explosive RB Taiwan Jones. In the First half, a screen play to Taiwan Jones ended up in a 82  yard run for a Touchdown. In the 2nd half in a reverse Taiwan Jones ran for 72 yards to the Nevada 6 yard line. Through out the 2nd half there was several mistackles especially in the back field  which ended up in first downs. Nevada had about 5 sacks so the defense pressure was there but the mistackles is a huge issue. Two injuries happened to Nevada's secondary but doesnt seem too bad. The defense did received an interception and a fumble recovery.

Eastern Washington passed for 270 yards for 21/40 pass attempts, and rushed for 160 yards ( which was the one from the 74 yard dash).

For next week Nevada is gonna have to work on its defense especially on tackling.
