Nevada received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 RB Toa Taua.

Taua (5'10/190) made his commitment during the Polynesian Bowl on Saturday. He strutted his stuff nicely in the contest, rushing for 41 yards -- tops in the contest -- and a pair of scores. While he's not a blink-and-you-miss him speedster, Taua is a bear to bring down in the open field and plays with a hard-charging downhill style. No dancing or hemming and hawing after taking the hand-off, here. While Taua currently projects as a running back for the collegiate level, he also has some upside as a safety or linebacker.

Nevada has hired Tommy Perry to be the 10th member of the coaching staff.

Perry will serve as the special teams coordinator. Prior to that, he was a senior special teams analyst. Before working for the Wolf Pack, he was at North Texas as both a running backs coach and special teams coordinator.

Nevada redshirt sophomore RB Kelton Moore rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Saturday's 23-16 win over UNLV.

Most importantly, Moore's touchdown, with 7:34 left, was the game-winning score. The sophomore flashed some potential when given an opportunity this year. Sporadically used in the first five games, Moore (5'10/220) ended up exceeding 100-yards rushing in four of Nevada's last seven games. He'll compete for the starting running back job in camp next summer.

Nevada redshirt senior OL Austin Corbett accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Corbett (6'4/305) has been a mainstay on the Nevada offensive line, and has started every game for the Wolf Pack since his redshirt freshman season. He was second-team All-Mountain West last year as a junior, and was on the Outland Trophy watch list this summer. A strong showing at the Senior Bowl could boost his late Day Three stock and see him go in the middle rounds thanks to his size and durability.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
