Nevada vs. UCLA 2013 final score: Bruins maul Wolf Pack in opener, 58-20

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Sophomore quarterback Brett Hundley accounted for three touchdowns while leading UCLA to an easy win in its home opener against Nevada.

Brett Hundley ran for two scores and passed two more, leading the UCLA Bruins to a 58-20 win in their home opener over the Nevada Wolf Pack at the Rose Bowl on Saturday night.

Hundley, a sophomore, completed 22-of-33 passes for 274 yards and two touchdowns, including a five-yard pass to Shaquelle Evans in the second quarter. Hundley also ran for 61 yards on eight carries and two touchdowns, including a 37-yard scamper to tally the game's first score.

UCLA rolled up 647 yards of total offense, 345 of those yards coming on the ground. The Bruins scored three touchdowns in the third quarter,turning a 17-13 halftime into a blowout as UCLA outscored Nevada 41-7 in the second half.

Cody Fajardo passed for 164 yards, but was bettter on the ground as he rushed for 106 yards and two scores on 22 carries for Nevada in defeat.

Box Score Hero: It won't be easy replacing Johnathan Franklin, who left UCLA as the all-time leading rusher in Bruins history. Junior tailback Jordon James got off to a smashing start for UCLA, however, totaling 155 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown.

Rankings Ramifications: UCLA entered the week at No. 21 in both the AP and Coaches Poll. They'll likely rise a few spots after their opening win, especially with losses by No. 19 Boise State and No. 20 TCU.

But Did They Cover? UCLA was favored by 20.5 points and easily covered. The Bruins would have covered with the second-half alone.
