RENO, Nev. -- Ty Gangi accounted for five touchdowns, Kelton Moore became the first Nevada player to rush for over 200 yards in a game since 2012 and the Wolfpack beat Hawaii 35-21 Saturday night for their first win of the season -- and the first career win for coach Jay Norvell.
Moore had 19 carries for 216 yards -- the first 100-yard rusher for Nevada (1-5, 1-1 Mountain West) this season -- and added five receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown. Gangi was 25-of-32 passing for 278 yards and four scores and had a 17-yard TD run.
Hawaii (2-4, 0-3) took a 14-7 lead when Dru Brown connected with Kade Greeley on a 42-yard touchdown pass with 3:55 left in the first half but, on the first play of Nevada's next offensive possession, Moore ran 43 yards to the 28, setting up Gangi's TD run . The Rainbow Warriors were called for three penalties and lost 9 yards on their ensuing possession and then were called for two more -- including targeting on linebacker Penei Pavihi -- as the Wolfpack went 66 yards in 26 seconds to take a 21-14 lead when Gangi hit Wyatt Demps for a 2-yard score with 18 seconds left in the half.
Moore added a 22-yard touchdown reception and, after a 75-yard scoring run by Hawaii's Diocemy Saint Juste, Demps scored on a 32-yard catch in the second half. Demps finished with seven receptions for 111 yards.
Saint Juste finished with 24 carries for a career-high 241 yards for Hawaii, which has lost four in a row. The senior moved into third on the program's career rushing list with 2,484 yards, moving past Travis Sims (2,311).
