Making the Rounds: Nevada defeats UNLV Recaps


The Sports Network, as always, has a recap of the game.

Colin Kaepernick completed 13-of-17 throws for 124 yards and a touchdown and ran for 97 yards and another score to carry 25th-ranked Nevada past UNLV, 44-26, in the Battle for the Fremont Cannon at Sam Boyd Stadium.


ESPN has a pretty lengthy recap of the battle for the Fremont Cannon.

The Rebels could do little to stop the Wolf Pack's rushing attack, led by Taua's 188 yards. Nevada scored five touchdowns on the ground on 374 total rushing yards -- and never punted.

Here is Ed Graney's column on Sunday about the game. He writes for the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

This was a 14-point game until the final minute of the third quarter, when the torrent that was UNR's run game finally broke the dam that was UNLV's conceding defense.

Sports Illustrated had a recap as well.

The prize for the Silver State victory is a 545-pound model of the howitzer explorer John C. Fremont brought when he came west to Nevada in 1843. The trophy cost $10,000 to build 40 years ago. The winning team gets to decorate the trophy in its school colors.

"I've never seen the cannon any other color," said Kaepernick, who had 97 yards rushing with a touchdown, and 124 yards passing with one touchdown and an interception.
