LAS VEGAS (AP) -

James Butler ran for a career-best 196 yards and three touchdowns and caught a pass for another score to lead Nevada to a 45-10 victory over UNLV on Saturday.

Butler, a junior, eclipsed his previous best of 189 yards to end the season with 3,313 career yards rushing. He scored on a 33-yard run and a 14-yard pass from Ty Gangi as the Wolf Pack (5-7, 3-5 Mountain West) took a 27-10 halftime lead. He added scoring runs of 3 and 13 yards in the fourth quarter.

Spencer Pettit kicked three field goals and Gangi, who had 193 yards passing and 99 rushing, ran 19 yards for a score.

Kurt Palandech rushed for 98 yards, scoring once, and passed for 121 for the Rebels (4-8, 3-5).

By winning, Nevada reclaimed the Fremont Cannon, said to be the heaviest and most expensive trophy in college football. It is a replica of the cannon explorer John C. Fremont brought into Nevada in the mid-19th century.
