The Wolfpack defeated Louisiana Tech last night. From AP-
Chris Ault never dreamed when he was Nevada’s quarterback four decades ago that he’d end up coaching the Wolf Pack to 200 victories.
He became only the sixth active coach in the NCAA’s Football Subdivision to accomplish the feat Friday night when Colin Kaepernick passed for three touchdowns and ran for two more to lead Nevada past Louisiana Tech, 37-14.
“The special thing to me is that it was done all at one university and it represents every single player who has put on the silver and blue. That’s pretty special,” said the 62-year-old Ault, Nevada’s quarterback from 1965-67 who has a record of 200-94-1 in 25 seasons as the coach.
Kaepernick finished with 166 yards passing and 89 yards rushing — including a 67-yard TD run — and Vai Taua added 107 yards on the ground for Nevada (2-3, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) in its fifth straight victory over the Bulldogs (2-3, 1-1).
Ault becomes the 54th NCAA football coach to get to 200 career victories. He ranks 6th among active coaches. Honestly, I never knew of Ault before today. Nevada football rarely gets mentioned here in South Florida.
