Nevada Spoils Cal’s Memorial Stadium Reopening Day Party With 31-24 Victory
BERKELEY (CBS/AP) — Stefphon Jefferson ran for 141 yards and scored his third touchdown with 36 seconds remaining as Nevada spoiled the reopening of Memorial Stadium by beating California 31-24 on Saturday.
Cody Fajardo completed 25 of 32 passes for 230 yards and added 101 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Wolf Pack (1-0), who put a damper on what was supposed to be a celebratory day for the Golden Bears in their first on-campus game in 21 months.
Fajardo engineered the winning drive by throw a 14-yard pass to Zach Sudfeld on third-and-4 from the Cal 38 and a 19-yarder to Brandon Wimberly that set up Jefferson’s winning score.
