The Nevada Wolf Pack football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Nevada Wolf Pack football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Wolf Pack represent the University of Nevada, Reno in the NCAA's Mountain West Conference (MW).

Although Nevada began competing in intercollegiate football in 1896,[1] the school's official record book does not include many statistics from before the 1940s, because records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since the 1940s, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
    • Additionally, Nevada has been grouped in the same MW football division as Hawaii since divisional play began in 2013, meaning that it plays at Hawaii every other year. This is relevant because the NCAA allows teams that play at Hawaii in a given season to schedule 13 regular-season games instead of the normal 12. However, Nevada has not chosen to play a 13-game schedule in any season since 2013, even though it has had the option to do so twice.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Wolf Pack have played in 10 bowl games since the decision, giving players in those seasons an extra game to accumulate statistics.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.

Total touchdownsEdit

The 2014 Nevada Wolf Pack Media Guide does not have any lists for total touchdowns responsible for,[1] and since the Wolf Pack did not play in the FBS (formerly I-A) until 1992, most Internet statistical listing do not list the full history of Nevada's statistics. However, as Colin Kaepernick is the school leader in both passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns, it is safe to say his 141 total touchdowns are the school record.
