After not getting a single carry the last two games, El Diamante-grad and Nevada sophomore Stefphon Jefferson went off for the first triple-digit rushing game of his career against in-state rival UNLV on Saturday in Reno, Nev.
Jefferson rushed for 100 yards on 17 carries. Although he didn’t score a touchdown, a solid running game, helped the Wolf Pack route the Rebels, 37-0.
The Wolf Pack passing game was particularly dominant, as quarterback Tyler Lantrip completed 18-of-29 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
The Wolf Pack’s leading receiver was Rishard Matthews with 10 catches for 220 yards and a touchdown. Jefferson caught three passes for 28 yards.
Clovis West-grad Kendall Brock saw some action also, returning the opening kick 35 yards. UNLV wouldn’t score again, so that would be the only return he had in the game.
