AP Sports Writer

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Carson Strong threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns to lead Nevada to a 22-17 victory over California in the season opener for both teams. Strong connected on TDs to Romeo Doubs and Elijah Cooks for a happy homecoming to Northern California. Strong grew up about an hour away from Memorial Stadium, attending Cal games and camps.

Cal lost its first regular-season nonconference under fifth-year coach Justin Wilcox.
