  An impressive bowl win helped Nevada to finish the 2020 football season ranked among the best teams in the country. The Wolf Pack (7-2) finished just shy of the top 25 in both the USA Today coaches' poll and the Associated Press Top 25 media poll, the two most prestigious national polls in college football. Nevada's season ended with a 38-27 win over Tulane in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in December. The Pack received 17 voting points in the USA Today poll, finishing seventh in the "others receiving votes" designation. Mountain West champion San Jose State (7-1) finished No. 24 in the poll, with 100 points. Boise State, which lost the Mountain West championship game to SJSU, received six points in the final balloting. In the final AP Top 25 poll, Nevada received seven points. San Jose State, the only other MW team to receive a vote, matched its coaches' poll finish by coming in at No. 24 in the AP balloting. - Reno Gazette Journal

  Carson Strong threw for 271 yards and five touchdowns, Devonte Lee and Toa Taua each rushed for over 100 yards, and Nevada beat Tulane 38-27 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Tuesday. Nevada (7-2) finished 2020 the same way it started the year - by playing in the same bowl game, which the Wolf Pack lost 30-21 to Ohio on Jan. 3. This year's Potato Bowl allowed Nevada to end with a win after losing its regular-season finale to San Jose State, which cost the Wolf Pack a spot in the Mountain West title game. Cameron Carroll rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown for Tulane (6-6), which was one of 19 schools to play 11 regular-season games amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Green Wave failed in their bid to win three consecutive bowl games for the first time in program history. Nevada built a 19-0 lead early in the second quarter, but the Green Wave rallied, pulling within 26-20 midway through the third quarter. - AP College Football

  Norvell raves about the three roommates, who all pace the MW in their respective statistical categories. Strong is first in the conference in passing yards (2,327) and passing touchdowns (21); Doubs is first in receptions (44), receiving yards (885) and receiving touchdowns (nine). And Turner is second in receptions (40) and receiving scores (six) and third in receiving yards (496), each pacing MW tight ends. "It's fun to coach this group of guys," Norvell said. "It really is. I mentioned Cole Turner and Romeo Doubs and Carson Strong are all roommates, and I kind of call them The Three Amigos. But they all have the same personality. They don't say much. They just love to practice and love to play and have great chemistry together. It's fun to see those guys all kind of mature together."

Norvell said Nevada's offensive improvement is a result of his players having more experience together. Strong, Doubs and Turner were each members of Norvell's second recruiting class and worked out every day together during the summer as the COVID-19 pandemic raged on. They'd sneak out to the field to run routes and grow their on-field chemistry. The bond has been formed over three years of living together and has fully blossomed in 2020. "It 100 percent helps," Turner said of being roommates. "We've all been super close friends. We've always lived together. Always being around each other, we know each other and each other's personalities. We've always gelled. None of us are ever getting mad at each other. We're always on the same page." - Nevada Sports Net

  Carson Strong threw three of his career-high five touchdown passes to Tory Horton and Nevada beat Fresno State 37-26 on Saturday night in a key Mountain West Conference matchup. Nevada (6-1, 6-1) kept pace with San Jose State (5-0, 5-0), which beat Hawaii 35-24 earlier Saturday. Horton, a freshman from Fresno, California, caught a 17-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter and an 85-yarder early in the fourth. On third-and-10, he beat and then jumped over a defender in the end zone for a 32-yard score with 5:32 to play. Strong completed 23 of 39 passes for 354 yards. Horton finished with five catches for 148 yards. Fresno State's Jake Haener threw a program-high 65 passes, completing 41 including a pair of touchdown passes. He surpassed Brian Burrell, who had 59 pass attempts against Nebraska on Nov. 13, 2014. - Nevada/AP College Football

  Since Nov. 1 of last year, Strong has been nothing short of one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. With the sophomore from Vacaville, Calif., playing pretty much every down, Nevada has gone 6-2 in that time, including a 3-0 start to this season. What jumps out is the accuracy, not only in terms of completion percentage - a statistic that can be heavily influenced by short passes - but TD/interception ratio. Strong is both taking care of the ball and coming up with big plays. Strong enters the New Mexico game having not thrown an interception in his last 282 attempts, the best such streak in the country by an even 100 attempts. His last pick came in the Wolf Pack's road win at San Diego State last season. "I haven't really been thinking too much about the streak," Strong said last week. "I'm just trying to read the defense and take what they give me every single play. I just want to hit the open man; I don't care who it is. "Seventy-five percent (completion percentage this season) is good, but we could be even better." - Reno Gazette Journal

  Along with his character to lead a potent Wolf Pack offense, Strong has showcased a much-improved arm. He's averaging 9.7 yards per attempt, a drastic increase from just 6.2 a year ago. His downfield throws have opened up Nevada's scheme with large chunk plays that puts opposing defenses on its heels. Strong credits his vigorous offseason routine to improve his deep ball accuracy, and it's paid off handsomely to this point. Nevada has three plays of 50-plus yards this season, all of them courtesy of Strong's ability to stretch the field with accurate deep throws. "It's the number one thing I've been working on in quarantine with my dad," he said. "It was something I wanted to improve upon. I love making big plays, and I left a lot of yards on the field out there last year...I'm just going to get better at it, we can start hitting those consistently." - The Nevada Sagebrush

  Carson Strong and Romeo Doubs connected for three first-half touchdowns and Nevada defeated Utah State 34-9 on Thursday night for the Wolf Pack's third straight win to start their season. Strong was 36-of-52 passing for 411 yards, 9 yards shy of his career high and his fifth straight 300-yard passing game. He has 282 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, the top active streak in the FBS. Doubs made seven catches for 137 yards after a 219-yard receiving day against UNLV last week.

Trailing 9-0, Nevada (3-0, 3-0 Mountain West) rallied behind Strong and Doubs. Strong extended a play before finding Doubs for a 42-yard score, hit Doubs again on a fourth-and-goal for a 3-yard TD and then tossed a 54-yarder to Doubs on a post pattern for a 21-9 halftime lead. Toa Taua ran for a 15-yard TD and his 60-yard run set up Brandon Talton's 36-yard field goal to lead 31-9 after three quarters. Tua finished with 107 yards on 12 carries. The Wolf Pack outgained the Aggies 542-210. Nevada is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2010 when they began 6-0. - AP College Football

  There's no sugar coating it, Carson Strong is the Wolf Pack's QB1 for the 2020 season. And with the type of freshman campaign he put together in 2019, it's hard to argue against it. Strong joined the Wolf Pack out of Vacaville, Calif. and Wood High School as a true freshman in 2018 and made a brief appearance in the tail end of Nevada's 2018 season opener against Portland State. With just that one appearance, Strong redshirted in his true freshman season and picked things up in 2019 as a redshirt freshman ready to lead the Wolf Pack. He won the starting quarterback job in fall camp and helped lead Nevada to a come-from-behind win over Purdue in his first collegiate start. In that game, Strong threw for 295 yards and tossed three touchdowns to no interceptions to aid in the Pack's 34-31 victory over the Power 5 opponent. All-in-all, Strong totaled 2,335 passing yards in his 10 games in 2019, added 11 touchdowns and completed 63.4 percent of his passes. He averaged 233.5 passing yards per game, which ranked fifth in the Mountain West. - Nevada Football

  2020 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD WATCH LIST: QB Carson Strong, Nevada,...In his redshirt freshman season in 2019, Strong served as Nevada's primary starting quarterback, appearing and starting in 10 contests. He threw for 2,335 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year, completing 63.4 percent of his passes. Strong averaged 233.5 passing yards per game, good for fifth in the Mountain West. In his first-ever collegiate start, he helped Nevada knock off Purdue to start the season in a come-from-behind effort where he tossed three touchdowns, no interceptions and 295 yards. Strong threw a career-best 402 passing yards in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Ohio, where along with his 31 completions, were Nevada bowl game records. - Nevada Football

  After trailing 24-7 at halftime, Carson Strong, the first freshman quarterback to start a season opener for Nevada since 1998, led the Wolf Pack to a 34-31 victory Friday against Purdue for the second win against a Big Ten team in program history. Nevada capped the comeback on a 56-yard field goal from freshman kicker Brandon Talton as time expired. The 17-point Nevada comeback tied the second largest comeback for the program since 1996. With the game tied and 32 seconds remaining, Purdue quarterback Elijah Sindelar threw an interception to defensive back Daniel Brown. Nevada tied the game with 52 seconds left on Strong's 20-yard pass to Elijah Cooks.

Strong hadn't started a football game since 2017. He sat out his senior year at Wood High in Vacaville, California and again last year as a redshirt. He completed 30 of 51 passes for 295 yards and 3 touchdowns. Purdue looked in control most of the game, and led 31-17 at the beginning of the third quarter. Sindelar recorded a career high 423 passing yards four touchdowns, but Purdue lost the turnover battle, 5-0, and two of those turnovers were Sindelar interceptions. - AP College Football
