Bulldogs Lose to Nevada 52-14

November 14, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
There's no such thing as a one-man team in division-one college football. But having to rely on a Ryan Colburn aerial assault isn't what got the Bulldogs the five-game winning streak they took into Reno. Colburn did throw for a career-high 362 yards and two scores; one of them to Jamel Hamler for 57-yards and a 7-0 lead.

The Bulldogs would lead 14-10 after the 1st Quarter, but the good times would stop there.

The nation's leading rusher, Ryan Mathews, would be knocked out of the game after a hard hit from Nevada safety Jonathan Amaya. Mathews suffered a concussion of which the severity won't be known for another 48 hours.

After that, it would be all Wolf Pack.

Nevada quarterback Colin Kapernick is a quarterback name only; 95-yards and two scores for him.

And on Senior Day, Luke Lippincott would shine. First from a yard out, then a 27-yarder to make it 38-14, and a final four-yard run for 149-yards and three scores.

It was 45-14 at that point with Nevada in the lead, and it wasn't over.

Following a Colburn fumble, Turlock-native Kaepernick capped off the scoring with a 21-yard run.

The nation's top rushing team rolled up 461 on a Bulldog defense that looked like swiss cheese in the second half.

52-14 is the final. Bulldogs fall to 6-4 ahead of Saturday's home contest against Louisiana Tech.

Nevada stayed undefeated in WAC play and so did Boise State.

On the smurf turf hosting in-state rivals Idaho, Kellan Moore finds Austin Pettis for one the duo's four scoring hookups on the game.

Later in the second quarter the Broncos put the game to bed. Titus Young took the kickoff from deep inside the end zone, found a hole up the right side and flew down the sideline all the way for the touchdown.

Boise would also return an interception for a score to win big; 63-25.
