Cougs Roll Over Wolfpack Featured


In a warm up game of sorts before the fourth ranked USC Trojans come to town, Luke Falk threw for 478 yards on 36 of 47 passing and 5 touchdowns as the Cougs dominate the lowly Nevada Wolf pack 45-7.


The Nevada Wolfpack came into Saturday’s game losing their previous 3 contests including last week to FCS team Idaho State.  They have had a quarterback carousel and started their third string quarterback against the Cougs.  David Cornwell is a graduate transfer from Alabama and was supposed to right the ship for the Nevada Wolfpack but a bad fall camp put him third in the depth chart.  His first action was Saturday and he went 13 of 25 with 97 yards and 3 interceptions as the Cougar defense dominated their front all day.


After turning the ball over on downs in their first drive, Luke Falk connected with Jamal Morrow for a 12 yard touchdown pass and the Cougs led 7-0 early.  Next drive, Falk found James Williams who broke some tackles on his way to 6 points.


The Cougar defense shut down all aspects of the Wolfpack offense.  Nevada had only 75 yards of total offense in the first half with only 41 yards of passing.  The second quarter was more of the same for the Cougs, with Falk passing for 2 more touchdowns.  Falk hit Tavares Martin Jr. for a 40 yard touchdown pass early in the 2nd Wuarter.    Then connect with Jamire Calvin from 6 yards out to give the Cougs a 35-0 lead at halftime.  The Cougs added 10 more points in the 2nd half and allowed a touchdown late, but by that time the Cougs were rotating in guys quite a bit. 


The Cougs played an overall good game having 2 receivers with over 100 yards in Martin Jr. and Renard Bell and also added 131 yards on the ground.  This was a good tune up for Friday night where we will see the 4th rank USC Trojans come to Pullman.  WAZZU hasn’t played their best game yet, but have put together some pieces from their first 2 games that should help them.  The Trojans are a different animal, and if the Cougs start out slow like they did against Boise State, it could be a long night.
