Nevada 35, Rice 10

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Jeff Rowe passed for 168 yards and a touchdown, and B.J. Mitchell made three short scoring runs in Nevada's 35-10 victory over Rice on Saturday.

Nichiren Flowers had eight catches for 90 yards and one touchdown as the Wolf Pack (3-4, 1-2 WAC) won their homecoming game. Mitchell had touchdown runs of 9, 2 and 7 yards, while Rowe rushed for 75 yards.

Joel Armstrong rushed for 98 yards and a touchdown for the Owls (3-3, 2-2).

Rice had 268 yards rushing, but didn't score a touchdown until Armstrong ran in from 13 yards out with 4:36 left. The Owls' wishbone offense had only 57 yards passing.

The Wolf Pack took a 7-0 lead on a 17-yard TD run by Chance Kretschmer, then regained possession when Ed Bailey fumbled the ensuing kickoff. Three plays later, Rowe hit Flowers with a short screen pass over the middle, and Flowers raced 20 yards for a score.
