UNLV at Nevada

Herring shines as UNLV holds off Nevada 27-22


  •  

RENO, Nev. (AP) Caleb Herring passed for 335 yards and three touchdowns and UNLV defeated upstate rival Nevada 27-22 on Saturday.

Tim Cornett rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown and Devante Davis had eight catches for 121 yards for the Rebels (5-3 overall, 3-1 Mountain West Conference).

Herring completed 29 of 42 passes and his 11-yard strike to Davis with 5:54 left in the game put the Rebels up 27-16.

Cody Fajardo passed for 357 yards and two touchdowns (3-5 overall, 2-3 MWC). His 11-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Bradley pulled Nevada to within 27-22 with 3:25 to play.

Nevada forced UNLV to punt, but the Wolf Pack could not convert a fourth-and-4 play with 1:28 left and UNLV ran out the clock.

The victory gave the Rebels possession of the Fremont Cannon - the most expensive trophy in college football - for the first time since 2004.
