A 35-point second half from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas propelled the Rebels to 58-27 victory over football on Saturday.'The biggest thing was execution today on all three phases,' head coach Seth Littrell said. 'When we have critical situations offensively — whether it's on short yardage or in the red zone — we've got to be able to convert and make sure we score touchdowns. Defensively we missed way too many tackles.'Nevada-Las Vegas (2-1, 0-0 Mountain West Conference) scored on the opening drive of the game with a 23-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Doug Brumfield after converting on fourth and five from midfield.
