Hundley Sharp In Season Opener, Leads UCLA Past Nevada 58-20
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Brett Hundley passed for 274 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for two more scores, leading No. 21 UCLA’s second-half surge to a 58-20 victory over Nevada on Saturday night.
Jordon James rushed for 155 yards and a touchdown, and Phillip Ruhl returned a blocked punt for a short touchdown as UCLA thoroughly spoiled the debut of Nevada coach Brian Polian with a 41-point second half.
Shaq Evans had six receptions for 81 yards and a score, and Malcolm Jones caught a late TD pass during a dominant effort by the UCLA offense, which piled up 647 total yards.
Cody Fajardo passed for 164 yards and rushed for two TDs, but the Wolf Pack couldn’t keep up in their debut under Polian, the 38-year-old picked to replace Hall of Fame coach Chris Ault.
