Aggies Fall 52-6 To No. 18 Nevada

The Aggie football team fell 52-6 to No. 18 Nevada on Saturday afternoon. Tyler Stampler hit two of three field goal attempts to account for the Aggies' only scoring.

Nevada received the ball to start the game and drove 75 yards on 14 plays for a touchdown taking a 7-0 lead. The Aggies' first drive started at their own 21 yard line and on the first play from scrimmage Andrew Manley hit Taveon Rogers for a 44-yard completion down to the Nevada 35 yard line. Manley would complete a pass to Marcus Allen for seven yards but the Aggies' drive would stall after back-to-back incompletions. Tyler Stampler would miss a 46 yard field goal just his third miss of the season.

The Wolf Pack would take over and drive 53 yards on seven plays settling for a 36-yard field goal to take a 10-0 lead. Following the field goal the Wolf Pack would score touchdowns on three of their next four possessions while the Aggies would get a second quarter field goal, a 47-yarder from Tyler Stampler as the Wolf Pack held a 31-3 lead at halftime.

The Aggies would get a 39 yard field goal from Tyler Stampler on their second drive of the third quarter to cut the deficit to 31-6 but the Wolf Pack would add a third quarter touchdown and two fourth quarter touchdowns to make the score 52-6. The Aggie would have three drives end in Wolf Pack territory in the fourth quarter as an Andrew Manley pass was intercepted at the Nevada 10 yard line and returned 90 yards for a touchdown and the Aggies' Robert Clay would fumble on the Nevada 14 yard line.

The Aggies finished with 309 yards of total offense while Nevada recorded 494 yards of offense.

The loss drops the Aggies to 2-9 on the season and 1-6 in WAC play. The Aggies close out the season next Saturday against Hawai'i on Senior Day at Aggie Memorial Stadium.
