Nevada opened the scoring with an 8-yard run by Chance Kretschmer in the first quarter, but was unable to hit paydirt again. Senior Cougar receiver Jerome Riley took a Jason Gesser pass 44-yards in the second quarter to start the Wazzu run of 31 unanswered points.
Derting's 98-yard interception runback broke the 93-yard record set by Lionel Thomas in 1969 against UCLA.
