Cougars make adjustments heading into Nevada game

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada's seniors set out to spread a unified message to younger teammates in a shortened week leading up to Friday night's matchup with Washington State: Don't fear the big boys.

Maybe easier said than done given the scary numbers Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday and his fleet of speedy receivers put up week in and week out.

Halliday was 40-of-56 for 532 yards and five touchdowns in last week's 41-38 season-opening loss to Rutgers in Seattle.

Nevada counters with quarterback Cody Fajardo, who passed for 303 yards and ran for 68 in Saturday's 29-19 season-opening win over Southern Utah.
