Nevada 42, Louisiana Tech 0

RUSTON, La. (AP) -- Luke Lippincott ran for 122 yards and scored three of Nevada's touchdowns as the Wolf Pack shut out Louisiana Tech, 42-0, on Saturday.

Robert Hubbard added two scores on the ground for Nevada (8-3, 5-2 Western Athletic Conference) and gained 53 yards rushing.

Tech (3-8, 1-5 WAC) had four turnovers and 331 yards of total offense compared to Nevada's 409.

Nevada's Jeff Rowe completed 11-of-19 passes for 138 yards and one interception and backup Travis Moore went 2-of-3 for 58 yards.

Patrick Jackson led Louisiana Tech with 89 yards rushing and 55 yards receiving. Quarterback Zac Champion completed 12-of-22 passes for 137 yards and threw two interceptions.

Nevada set the tone early, forcing a 3-and-out on Tech's first possession to start the game. The Wolf Pack proceeded to move down the field and eat more than six minutes off the clock before Lippincott got his first score, a four-yard touchdown run.

Marko Mitchell also scored a touchdown on a five-yard pass from Rowe at the 12:27 mark of the second quarter.
