Nevada rallies for 35-28 win over Wyoming in OT
NEVADA 35, WYOMING 28
RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Backup quarterback Devin Combs hit Aaron
Bradley with a 24-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Nevada
came from behind to beat Wyoming 35-28 on Saturday.
In a strange game that saw both teams lose their starting
quarterbacks, the Wolf Pack tied the game in the final seconds
of regulation as Combs connected with Richie Turner from 44
yards out to tie the score at 28.
Nevada (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West) led 21-7 in the second quarter
when starting quarterback Cody Fajardo went down with back
spasms with 5:04 left to play. He did not return.
Nevada coach Chris Ault praised Combs, a sophomore who finished
11 of 19 for 217 yards and two touchdowns.
"It took Devin some time to find himself, but he did and I'm
proud of him," Ault said. "To bring this team back in the fourth
quarter and then win this thing, that was pretty special."
Fajardo was 19 of 26 for 221 yards and two touchdowns and an
interception. His 20-yard scoring pass to Kendall Brock put
Nevada ahead 21-7 with 9:50 left in the first half.
Wyoming (1-4, 0-1) came back behind quarterback Brett Smith, who
was ejected with 8:16 left in the fourth quarter after receiving
a second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Smith's 8-yard touchdown run with 13:07 left in the game had
given the Cowboys a 28-21 lead. He received his first
unsportsmanlike penalty after the touchdown for taunting.
The second came on the Cowboys' next drive when Smith protested
a Nevada defensive holding penalty that was waved off by the
Wyoming coach Dave Christensen was critical of the call.
"Guy's running off the field, 3 yards from the sidelines running
off the field, takes his helmet off and you're going to throw a
flag on him," Christensen said. "Kick him out of the game?
Smith was 21 of 34 for 197 yards and three touchdowns. His
replacement, Jason Thompson, was 1 of 6 for 10 yards.
Nevada had the ball first in overtime, starting at the 25. After
rushing for 1 yard on the first play, Combs hit Bradley cutting
across the middle from 24 yards out.
Wyoming then took over at the 25 and after Thompson rushed for 1
yard on the first play, he threw three consecutive incomplete
passes to end the game.
The Cowboys held Wolf Pack running back Stefphon Jefferson, the
nation's leading rusher entering the game, to 78 yards on 23
carries, nearly 100 yards fewer than his season average of 174.
"I think our guys did a nice job stepping up against the run,
but gave up far too many passing yards," Christensen said."
