Nevada just did what it needed to do -- put the ball in the end zone (for the first time).
Quarterback Cody Fajardo dove in from a yard out, culminating a march in which he did a little of everything.
Fajardo passed for 36 yards and ran for 23 on the 82-yard drive.
He had a 14-yard run that was ruled a 15-yard touchdown on the field before being overturned by video review. He hurdled UCLA linebacker Jordan Zumwalt on that one.
UCLA 17, Nevada 6, 2:15 left in second quarter
Nevada is going to have to start scoring touchdowns instead of field goals. Otherwise this game is going to start quickly slipping away.
UCLA's offense -- in combination with a questionable Nevada defense -- is just too potent.
The Bruins drove 73 yards in 10 plays, and looked sharp doing it.
Jordon James had a 14-yard run; Steven Manfro added a nifty 20-yard gain; and the touchdown came on a five-yard pass from Brett Hundley to Shaquelle Evans.
The pass was to Evans' back shoulder, and he turned and made a nice catch.
UCLA 10, Nevada 6, 5:51 left in second quarter
An impressive drive engineered by quarterback Cody Fajardo bogged down inside the UCLA 10 and the Wolf Pack had to settle for a 21-yard field goal by Brent Zuzo.
Actually, it looked like Nevada wasn't going to settle, it was going to fake a kick and run. But a lineman started early and officials called a false start penalty.
Fajardo gained 35 yards rushing on what was a 12-play, 79-yard drive.
UCLA 10, Nevada 3, 11:23 left in second quarter
A 40-yard field goal by Ka'imi Fairbairn capped a 15-play, 72-yard drive for the Bruins.
Jordon James ran for 25 yards in four carries on the possession. He already has 76 yards in 10 carries.
