CODY FAJARDO, NEVADA
Sophomore, Quarterback, Brea, Calif./Servite HS
Cody Fajardo compiled 405 yards of total offense and accounted for three touchdowns in Nevada's 32-31 loss to USF. The sophomore quarterback completed 27-of-38 pass attempts for 271 yards and a touchdown, and rushed 18 times for 134 yards, including TD runs of one and 14 yards. The Brea, Calif., product hit nine different receivers during the game and did not throw an interception for the second straight contest. Fajardo's 100-yard rushing performance was the third of his career at Nevada, while his 134 yards on the ground marked the second-highest tally of his career.
