RUSTON, La. -- Vai Taua ran for a 22-yard touchdown with 3:15 left to cap Nevada's 35-31 comeback victory over Louisiana Tech on Saturday.
Taua's rush capped a 21-0 run that washed away Louisiana Tech's 31-14 lead with 4:48 left in the third. Nevada's three-touchdown turnaround started late in the third with Colin Kaepernick's 18-yard touchdown connection with Marko Mitchell, continued with Kaepernick's 27-yard toss to Mike McCoy to start the fourth and ended with Taua's game-winner.
Kaepernick completed 23 of 39 passes for 378 yards with four touchdowns and one interception for the Wolf Pack (7-5, 5-3 Western Athletic Conference). Taua finished with 57 yards on the ground. Marko Mitchell had 134 yards and two touchdowns on five catches, and Mike McCoy had 109 yards and a score on six receptions.

After Kaepernick hit Mitchell on a 62-yard score, Jenkins hit Phillip Livas on a 44-yard score and Patrick Johnson's 4-yard run made it 31-14. The Bulldogs didn't score again.
