The Nevada Football team dropped it's first game of the season Saturday on the road 41-10 to Vanderbilt.

The Wolf Pack were able to keep the game within striking distance in the first half keeping the game scoreless after the 1st quarter then trailing the Commodores by only seven at the half.

However Nevada would be held scoreless in the second half while Vanderbilt would score 24 unanswered points.

The Nevada defense was stingy early as Hausia Sekona would force a fumble recovered by Dom Peterson. Then the Pack defense would force a turnover on downs inside the Nevada five yard line.

Late in the second quarter the Wolf Pack would score it's only touchdown of the game as Ty Gangi would connect with Brendan O'Leary-Orange on a nine yard score to make it 17-10.

The second half the Nevada offense would stub it's toe going three and out and then Vanderbilt would intercept a Gangi pass on third down. 

After putting up 72 points in it's season opener the Wolf Pack could not get it going on offense rushing for only 34 yards and throwing for just 216 yards.

The defense did force and recover a pair of fumbles but still lost the turnover battle as the Vandals recovered two fumbles and picked off Gangi twice.

The loss moves the Wolf Pack's record to (1-1). 

Next up they will host Oregon State on Saturday September 15th, with kickoff at Mackay Stadium set for 4pm.
