NEVADA WOLFPACK RUMORS & GOSSIP
Nevada's Brock Hekking was named the FWAA/Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week, but we're really impressed by his all-world mullet.
Cody Fajardo threw efficiently, completing 18 of 21 passes for 239 yards, and Nevada rolled over UC Davis 36-7 on Saturday night.
Nevada (1-1) avenged a season-opening loss at No. 21 UCLA with a commanding win over UC Davis (0-2) in its home opener. Brian Polian won his first game as coach of the Wolf Pack.
Fajardo scored the first touchdown of the game on a 7-yard run and later...

I am 100% certain that a QB will win this year’s Heisman so start placing your bets on every RB and WR you can think of because I’m pretty much never right.

Since...

Nevada junior quarterback Cody Fajardo is quietly following NFL sensation and former Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s footsteps as an offensive threat, leader, and winner.

Given former Wolfpack quarterback's Colin Kaepernick's meteoric rise to stardom, the University of Nevada is attempting to capitalize on his popularity to sell tickets.
Tempers flared on the Arizona sideline as one Arizona player punched another Arizona player in the face after a defensive breakdown. The Nevada Wolfpack was up 21 to 7 over the Arizona Wildcats and then this happened. Tevin Hood punched Cody Ippolito and Ippolito retaliated. These guys were pulled apart and brought back into the locker room.

For Nevada middle linebacker James-Michael Johnson, known to his friends simply by the catchy JMJ abbreviation, this is the time to separate himself from the pack.
At the Senior Bowl this week, Johnson lined up at Mike linebacker.
A team captain and all-conference selection, Johnson recorded 100 tackles, 1 2/2 sacks, one forced fumble and one interception for the Wolfpack last season.
