                     === Carr, Fresno State crush UNLV ===
 Fresno,  CA (SportsNetwork.com)  - Derek Carr threw four touchdown passes, all
 to  Davante Adams,  as No. 17 Fresno State  rolled to a 38-14 win over UNLV on
 Carr  finished  33-for-46 for 412 yards  and Adams caught eight passes for 221
 yards  for the  Bulldogs (6-0, 3-0 MWC),  who matched the best start in school
 history with the win.
 "He's  good.  We had  no allusions about  who they were  on offense. They made
 their plays," UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck said of Carr.
 In 2001, Carr's brother, David, also led the team to a 6-0 start.
 "When  the best quarterback  to ever play here is your big brother and you can
 have both your names in a book someday that says you have records together, it
 means a tremendous deal to me," Carr said.
 Caleb  Herring  completed 27-of-42  passes for  161 yards  and a touchdown and
 Shaquille  Murray-Lawrence  carried the  ball three  times for  79 yards and a
 score  for the  Rebels  (4-3, 2-1),  who had  their  four-game winning  streak
 It  was the school's longest streak since Randall Cunningham led the Rebels to
 seven straight wins in 1984.
 Fresno  State scored  the first three touchdowns  of the game to jump out to a
 21-0  lead.  On  the  first  play  from  scrimmage,  Carr  found  Adams  along
 the right sideline for a 75-yard touchdown.
 Carr  went  back to  Adams later in  the frame with  a 28-yard touchdown pass,
 capping a 14-play, 79-yard trek.
 Josh Quezada's 2-yard TD plunge early in the second made it 21-0.
 The Rebels got on the board when Murray-Lawrence broke off a 73-yard touchdown
 run,  but Carr  and the Bulldogs answered  just under two minutes later as the
 senior  signal caller connected  with Adams for the third time -- a 36-yard TD
 Herring's  13-yard touchdown  completion to Marcus Sullivan cut UNLV's deficit
 to 28-14 at the break.
 Carr  went back to  his favorite weapon for a 37-yard touchdown just over five
 minutes into the second half and Colin McGuire added a 36-yard field goal with
 3:00 left in the third to account for the final margin.
