Reno, Nev. - Dwight Lowery tied a San Jose State record and added to his national lead with his eighth interception, but the Nevada Wolf Pack prevailed over the Spartans, 23-7, at Mackay Stadium on Saturday, October 21.

Trailing 10-0 with the Wolf Pack driving and less than a minute remaining in the first half, Lowery stepped in front of Travis Moore's pass and returned the pick down the right sideline to the Nevada 13-yard line.

One play later, Adam Tafralis connected with James Jones for his ninth touchdown pass of the season. Jones' 13-yard reception was his team-leading fifth touchdown of the season.

Yonus Davis rushed for 100 yards on just 11 carries, including a 48-yard run late in the second quarter. It marked his second 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Waylon Prather added two career-high punts, with 68-yard and 72-yard efforts. The 72-yarder was the seventh longest punt in school history. He put four of his six punts on the night inside the Wolf Pack 20-yard line. Defensively, Matt Castelo was credited with 16 combined tackles, giving the junior middle linebacker a total of 36 over the past two games.

Quarterback Myles Eden saw action late in the fourth quarter for the Spartans. His first play from scrimmage was a 16-yard run, which was followed by a nine-yard pass completion to Jeff Clark on his first pass attempt. It was the second appearance of the season for the redshirt freshman.
