Posted: Updated:

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Cody Fajardo threw efficiently, completing 18 of 21 passes for 239 yards, and Nevada rolled over UC Davis 36-7 on Saturday night.

Nevada (1-1) avenged a season-opening loss at No. 21 UCLA with a commanding win over UC Davis (0-2) in its home opener. Brian Polian won his first game as coach of the Wolf Pack.

Fajardo scored the first touchdown of the game on a 7-yard run and later completed a 40-yard TD pass to Richy Turner to help Nevada build an early lead.

Kendall Brock gained 116 yards on the ground and scored the first two rushing touchdowns of his career to help the Wolf Pack offense.

The Aggies lone TD came on a Tom Hemmingsen reception from Jimmy Laughrea late in the first half to make the score 20-7.

The Nevada defense intercepted Hemmingsen twice and held the Aggies to 3 of 12 on third-down conversions.
