  Nevada's whirlwind month as vagabonds ended with a very satisfying win. Carson Strong threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Wolf Pack to a 22-17 victory over California on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams. Nevada has been forced to adapt because of smoke from wildfires that made it impossible to practice outdoors on campus. That forced the Wolf Pack to travel nearly 2,000 miles and practice on basketball courts, conventions centers and even a hotel parking garage. "What we've had to go through this last month just to prepare to play was something - seven different fields we practiced on, we traveled 1,953 miles to be exact to different places to practice," coach Jay Norvell said. "We never cheated the kids on their preparation. We did everything we needed to do to get ready for this game. We didn't cut any corners. Boy did they respond." Strong connected on TDs to Romeo Doubs and Elijah Cooks for a happy homecoming to Northern California.

Strong grew up about an hour away from Memorial Stadium, attending Cal games and camps. But after a knee injury his senior year in high school in Vacaville the Bears didn't recruit him and he has turned into a star at Nevada. "I always want to win no matter what but this one is pretty sweet," Strong said. "This is probably my favorite one." Cal scored TDs on its first two drives but then stalled, going three-and-out on the next four drives. While the Bears couldn't move the ball, Nevada scored 22 straight points. The Wolf Pack cut the deficit to 14-13 at the half on a pair of field goals from Brandon Talton and Strong's 43-yard TD pass to Dobbs. Strong then put together an impressive drive to open the second half to give the Wolf Pack the lead for good. He completed a 17-yard pass to Cole Turner on third and 17, a 46-yarder to Tory Horton on third-and-9 and then a 16-yard TD to Cooks on the next play to make it 19-14. - Nevada/AP College Football
