RENO, Nev. -- Colin Kaepernick threw two touchdown passes and rushed for a pair of scores to lead Nevada to a 31-21 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.

Vai Taua added 127 yards on the ground and caught a touchdown pass for Nevada (5-3, 4-0 WAC). Kaepernick passed for 184 yards and ran for 114 more for the nation's top running game, which gained 312 yards.

Kaepernick became only the sixth player in FBS history to score 200 points and throw for 200 points in a career.

Nevada fell behind 14-0 early but scored 28 unanswered points to win its fifth consecutive game after starting the season with three straight losses.

Hawaii's Bryant Moniz hit Kealoha Pilares with an 18-yard touchdown strike and Jovonte Taylor took a short pass from Moniz for a 71-yard score to give the Rainbow Warriors an advantage just seven minutes into the game.

But Nevada answered with three touchdowns before intermission to take a 21-14 lead into halftime. Tray Session's 40-yard reception from Kaepernick and Richard Drake's field goal completed Nevada's scoring.

Moniz completed 29 of 49 passes for 374 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions for Hawaii (2-6, 0-5), which dropped its sixth straight.
