Nevada junior QB Ty Gangi completed 33-of-54 passes for 414 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in a 42-23 loss to San Diego State on Saturday.

It's back-to-back three-score games for Gangi, who quietly has put together a solid season despite Nevada's 2-9 record. All three of his touchdowns came to unheralded wideout Brendan O'Leary Orange, but he spread the ball around to nine different Wolf Pack receivers. Gangi has played well enough that he should have a firm grasp on the quarterback job next season, and things should go better for the Wolf Pack, if only because they can't get much worse. They finish the year with UNLV.

Nevada sophomore Brendan O'Leary-Orange caught 11 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-23 loss to San Diego State on Saturday.

O'Leary-Orange (6'4/205) has become a bigger part of the offense for the Wolf Pack over the last month, but calling this the best game of the season is an understatement. He and Nevada quarterback Ty Gangi destroyed the Aztec secondary, and they connected on touchdown passes from 48, 9, and two-yards out, respectively. It's entirely possible with his size and speed that O'Leary-Orange could be a breakout star in 2018. Nevada closes out their season against UNLV.
Nov 19 - 10:41 AM

Nevada senior WR Wyatt Demps racked up seven receptions for 115 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 59-14 victory against San Jose State.

The 115 yards represented a season best, and he is wrapping up his college career with a bang. Demps has scored at least one touchdown in seven of his 10 outings, and he has visited the end zone on 10 different occasions this season. He'll look to keep up the good work next Saturday at San Diego State.
Nov 11 - 8:13 PM

Nevada junior QB Ty Gangi completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 232 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 59-14 rout of San Jose State.

Gangi also added a rushing touchdown in the victory. The junior signal caller has tossed at least one touchdown in all eight of his appearances, and two or more TD strikes in seven outings while also rushing for four scores. He'll look to carry over the momentum in next Saturday's road game at San Diego State.
Nov 11 - 8:11 PM

Nevada redshirt sophomore RB Kelton Moore rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 41-14 loss to Boise State.

Moore (5'10/220) worked as Nevada's most effective offensive weapon in the loss. This performance was not beyond the pale for the redshirt sophomore, either, as he's now surpassed 100 yards on the ground in three of his last four games, this after failing to hit that mark in any of his first five contests this year.
Nov 4 - 10:38 PM

Nevada redshirt sophomore RB Kelton Moore rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries in the school's 45-42 loss to Air Force.

This was Moore's second 100-plus yard performance of the season and just his second touchdown. His long run went for 32 yards. Moore has really emerged this season after doing very little in 2016.

Nevada sophomore QB Griffin Dahn had surgery on his ankle last week and will miss the remainder of the season.

According to Nevada head coach Jay Norvell, Dahn broke his ankle in high school and had a plate inserted. The ankle had been bothering him, so the player and team opted for surgery. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Dahn only appeared in one game this year. Because of that, he should be eligible for a medical redshirt waiver. If that's the case, he'll still have three years of eligibility remaining starting next year.

Nevada HC Jay Norvell says sophomore RB Jaxson Kincaide (knee) is making progress.

Kincaide missed last week’s game against Colorado State with a knee strain. Unfortunately for the Wolf Pack, all three of Kincaide's backups are also injured. "He’s coming around," Norvell said of Kincaide. "We’re really banged up at running back with Jaxson and Blake [Wright], and Kelton [Moore] wasn’t healthy. Some of those short-yardage plays were tough because Kelton wasn’t really healthy. He made that big third-down conversion late in the game, but it was tough." Nevada takes on Air Force this week.
Oct 17 - 1:35 PM

Nevada junior QB Ty Gangi threw for four scores and 428 yards on 23-for-40 passing in a 44-42 loss to Colorado State on Saturday.

Gangi (6'2/205) now has eight touchdown passes in his last two games, which is good. It almost seems silly to think that there was a quarterback competition at this point, as Gangi was/is clearly the best option for the Wolf Pack. The only complaint is a 23-for-40 completion percentage leaves a bit to be desired. He'll look to improve that number while still putting up the touchdowns next week against Air Force.
Oct 15 - 2:45 AM

Nevada sophomore RB Jaxson Kincaide (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against Colorado State.

Kincaide (5'9/180) was limited to just three carries last week in the victory over Hawaii. Fellow sophomore runner Kelton Moore had a breakout game (216 yards) in that victory, and should get the majority of the carries even if Kincaide is able to go against the Rams on Saturday.
Oct 12 - 9:08 PM

Nevada junior QB Ty Gangi threw for four scores and 278 yards on 25-for-32 passing in a 35-21 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.

Gangi also ran for a score, giving him five touchdowns on the day. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound quarterback showed flashes of this against Fresno State last week, but was much better on Saturday, albeit against a much worse defense in Hawaii. It should earn Gangi at least a few more starts as the Wolf Pack quarterback in a rebuilding year, which is probably complimenting with fake praise. Nevada gets Colorado State next.
Oct 8 - 2:32 AM

Nevada senior WR Wyatt Demps caught seven passes for 111 yards and two scores in a 35-21 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.

Even as the Wolf Pack remained without a win coming into the game, Demps (6'4/200) has still been able to produce solid numbers as the Wolf Pack's top wideout. This time, Demps was able to put up his numbers while leading Nevada to a victory. It's the second time he's caught two touchdowns in a game, and you can only imagine how much better his numbers would be without the erratic quarterback play he's played with. He'll get his again next week against Colorado State.
Oct 8 - 2:28 AM

Nevada redshirt sophomore RB Kelton Moore ran for 216 yards on 19 carries in a 35-21 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.

Moore (5'10/220) also caught five passes for 46 yards in the victory. Since filling in for Jaxson Kincaide (concussion) the sophomore has shown the ability to make plays as a runner and as a pass-catcher. Nevada just hasn't shown the ability to get him the ball enough. He should continue to see these kind of touches as the year progresses, including next week against Colorado State.
Oct 8 - 2:24 AM

Nevada senior WR Wyatt Demps caught 10 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in a 41-21 loss to Fresno State on Saturday.

Demps (6'4/200) was basically the only bright spot for Nevada on Saturday. This, unfortunately, is becoming routine for Nevada, who might be one of the worst teams in all of the FBS. The touchdown was a 17-yarder from quarterback Ty Gangi that made it 31-7 Fresno State late in the second quarter.
Oct 1 - 1:27 AM

Nevada announced that redshirt junior QB David Cornwell will transfer.

It's a short stay for Cornwell, who just transferred from Alabama to Nevada in December. The six-foot-five, 235-pound quarterback made his debut with the Wolf Pack on Saturday, but struggled mightily, completing 52 percent of his passes and throwing three interceptions against Washington State. The poor outing caused Nevada HC Jay Norvell to name Ty Gangi the starter again, and now Cornwell will look to continue his collegiate career elsewhere.
