Nevada redshirt sophomore RB Kelton Moore will start in Saturday's game against Washington State.

Moore is filling in for Jaxson Kincaide, who is dealing with a concussion. The 5-foot-10, 220-pounder rushed for 96 yards on 21 carries while spelling Kincaide against Idaho State last weekend.

Nevada sophomore RB Jaxson Kincaide (concussion) did not travel to Pullman for Saturday's game against Washington State.

It's not quite clear when Kincaide sustained the concussion, but he'll rest up on Saturday. Kelton Moore is expected to see starting carries versus the Cougars with Kincaide no longer an option in the backfield.
Sep 23 - 6:09 PM

Nevada freshman QB Kaymen Cureton completed 19-of-33 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns with an interception in a 30-28 loss to Idaho State.

Cureton (6'2/205) was making his first start of his career, and things didn't go terribly well. He did throw three touchdowns, but that completion percentage and 6.2 yard-per-attempt against and FCS defense isn't ideal. He'll likely get another start next week against Washington State, but he'll have to play much better if they have any chance of keeping that game close.
Sep 17 - 2:52 AM

Nevada coach Jay Norvell announced that true freshman QB Kaymen Cureton will start on Saturday against Idaho State.

This is something of a stunner, as it had been assumed that the Wolf Pack would turn to Alabama transfer David Cornwell when it inevitably pulled the plug on Ty Gangi. Gangi proved unfit for the job in two early starts completing 47.3-percent of his passes for 476 yards and a 4/2 TD/INT rate. "We need to be more productive in the passing game," Norvell said. "We're not throwing for a very high percentage, which affects our ability to continue to play fast, to keep drives alive and to be good on third down." The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Cureton is a three-star prospect who reportedly held early offers from Alabama and LSU as an athlete but wanted to play quarterback in college. He's a nephew of Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn.

Nevada freshman WR McLane Mannix caught six passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 37-24 loss to Toledo.

Mannix (5'10/175) has looked remarkably comfortable in the first two games of his collegiate career. He caught two passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in a season-opening loss to Northwestern, then came right back for even bigger and better things on Saturday (albeit, in another loss). With Kaleb Fossum expected to miss several weeks while recovering from a dislocated kneecap, Mannix has a true chance to carve out a niche in OC Matt Mumme's Air Raid.
Sep 9 - 11:09 PM

Nevada junior WR Kaleb Fossum is "likely to miss at least a couple of weeks," according to the Reno Gazette Journal.

As expected. Fossum was carted off the field after going down with the knee dislocation late in the third quarter of last Saturday's loss to Northwestern. The 5-foot-10, 187-pound Washington State transfer caught four passes for 36 yards against the Wildcats. McLane Mannix, a youngster the coaching staff likes, is in line for more targets so long as Fossum is out.
Sep 9 - 11:28 AM

Nevada junior WR Kaleb Fossum has been diagnosed with a dislocated kneecap.

Fossum required a cart after going down with the knee dislocation late in the third quarter of Saturday's game against Northwestern. While HC Jay Norvell is hopeful that the 5-foot-10, 187-pound Washington State transfer will be able to play again this season, no recovery timetable can realistically be placed on him given the recency of the injury. Expect that to clarify in the coming days and weeks. Fossum's injury leaves Nevada with several holes to fill -- he was going to serve as a starting wide receiver, punt returner, kick returner and holder this season.
Sep 2 - 7:49 PM

Nevada junior QB Ty Gangi went 16-for-37 for 199 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 31-20 loss against Northwestern on Saturday.

The Wolf Pack showed a bit better than expected on Saturday afternoon, but their new Air Raid offense wasn't the reason why. Gangi was subpar in the pocket, completing less than 50-percent of his passes while failing to reach 200 yards passing. The dual-threat quarterback also didn't use his legs much, running for a mere 16 yards. We're surprised Nevada didn't use David Cornwell today. This quarterback race has not been decided just yet.
Sep 2 - 7:12 PM

Nevada junior WR Kaleb Fossum was carted off the field with a knee injury in Saturday's game against Northwestern.

Fossum was injured late in the third quarter. A transfer from Washington State this offseason, the 5-foot-10, 187-pounder's loss for an extended amount of time would be killer for the Wolf Pack. Not only is he one of the team's starting receivers, he also serves as a punt returner, kick returner and holder. We'll provide further updates on his status as they become available.
Sep 2 - 6:20 PM

Pro Football Weekly's Eric Edholm reports that Nevada redshirt junior QB David Cornwell will open the year as Ty Gangi's backup.

That report comes with a big caveat: Edholm says Cornwell will likely see snaps against Northwestern on Saturday. The Wolf Pack appear no closer to naming a true starting quarterback than they did in July.
Sep 1 - 4:17 PM

Pro Football Weekly's Eric Edholm reports that Nevada plans to start junior QB Ty Gangi versus Northwestern on Saturday.

"Both QBs could play, however," Edholm added. The other quarterback, of course, is David Cornwell, the Alabama transfer who we considered the heavy favorite to emerge with this job. It doesn't sound like the Wolfpack have settled on a definitive starter yet. They seem intent to give both Gangi and Cornwell a look against Northwestern's strong defense. In that game, the Wolf Pack will unveil their brand-new Air Raid offense. For his part, Gangi is a dual-threat who went 99-of-172 passing for 1,301 yards and an 8/6 TD/INT rate last year.
Sep 1 - 1:46 PM

Nevada HC Jay Norvell indicated that the Wolf Pack could use more than one quarterback this season.

Heading into preseason camp, Norvell said that Cornwell was the starter "right now." He has not officially named his gunslinger for the coming campaign. Said Norvell on Monday, "Whoever starts, whether it’s David or Ty [Gangi], I just think that the other guy is going to play at some point and they have to both be ready." Gangi started four games last season, while Cornwell is fresh off a transfer from Alabama. Our money remains on Cornwell to ultimately land the gig.
Aug 21 - 5:01 PM

Nevada HC Jay Norvell named redshirt junior QB David Cornwell the starting quarterback.

"David’s the starting quarterback right now and he’ll have to compete and earn that spot throughout training camp and if there’s reason for him not to be we’ll address (it)," Norvell said. He cited Cornwell's performance in the spring as one reason he currently sits at the top of the depth chart -- the Alabama transfer completed 22-of-32 passes for 302 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's spring game (all in the first half at that). He has yet to make a start at the collegiate level, but if he can take advantage of his opportunity, he could potentially post big numbers during the coming season in OC Matt Mumme's Air Raid.
Jul 27 - 4:41 PM

Over the offseason, Nevada transitioned to the Air Raid offense under new OC Matt Mumme.

Mumme, the son of Air Raid architect Hal Mumme, runs a base set that includes four wideouts. The best of them is the 6-foot-4, 200-pound senior WR Wyatt Demps, who posted a 53-686-9 line last season. He's in line for a major breakout this fall, especially because star RB James Butler's July 4 transfer to Iowa will probably encourage even more throws.
Jul 11 - 3:57 PM

The Reno Gazette-Journal's Chris Murray writes that Nevada redshirt junior WR Andrew Celis' "hands and IQ are elite."

Murray does offer the caveat that Celis is "not quite as fast as you’d like in the slot," but likes his versatility as both a receiver and a weapon in the return game. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder caught 23 passes for 318 yards last season while racking up 101 yards on nine punt returns. Athlon Sports named has named him to the preseason All-Mountain West team as a punt return ace. Now working in OC Matt Mumme's Air Raid, his receiving output has plenty of room to expand during the coming campaign.
