TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - An injury-riddled Wolf Pack got blown out 62-7 by 10th ranked Florida State on Saturday.

Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo missed the game with a knee sprain, and both running backs Don Jackson and Kendall Brock sat out with injuries.

Combs completed 6-of-9 passes for 39 yards and a touchdown pass to Brandon Wimberly. Stewart was 7-of-15 for 49 yards and an interception.

The Wolf Pack hung tough for most of the first half, leading it 7-3 with under four minutes to go.

That's when Florida State woke up. The Seminoles scored two quick touchdowns to end the half, taking a 17-7 lead into halftime.

They scored 31 points in the third quarter alone, including three touchdowns within the first five minutes.

Jameis Winston passed for 214 yards and two touchdowns. He did throw an interception; picked off by Nevada's Bryson Keeton in the second quarter.

Florida State ran for 377 yards against Nevada. Karlos Williams led the way with 110 yards and a score. Devonta Freeman added 109 yards and a touchdown.

Chris Solomon had a solid day for the Wolf Pack, gaining a career-high 108 yards on 26 carries.
