Nevada holds off Oregon State comeback, 37-35

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Jordan Choukair missed a 33-yard field goal as time expired and Nevada held off a furious Oregon State comeback to win 37-35 on Saturday night.

Nevada (2-1) led 30-7 lead with 10:16 left in the second quarter after Asauni Rufus forced Conor Blount to fumble the ball, and Malik Reed picked it up and ran 48 yards for a touchdown.

After the defensive touchdown, Oregon State (1-2) replaced Blount at quarterback with Jake Luton, who left the season opener two weeks ago with a concussion against No. 4 Ohio State.

Oregon State outscored Nevada 28-7 the rest of the way.

Luton finished 23 of 35 for 284 yards passing with one touchdown and one interception.

Nevada’s Ty Gangi was 17-of-35 passing for 195 yards and threw two touchdown passes.

The Beavers dominated Nevada through the air, passing for 459 yards compared to Nevada’s 201. But the Wolf Pack’s defensive front frustrated the Beavers’ offense. Nevada recorded five sacks to Oregon State’s one and held the Beavers to two yards rushing per carry.

THE TAKEAWAY

Oregon State: The Beavers’ extended their road losing streak to 21 games in a heartbreaking loss at Nevada.

Nevada: The Wolf Pack grabbed a rare win against a Power Five team and held on late against Oregon State.

UP NEXT
