Nearly 8,000 basketball fans during Wednesday night's Wolf Pack game against San Diego State at Lawlor Events Center paid tribute to former Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick by striking a group pose known as "Kaepernicking" - a kiss of one's bicep.
Kaepernick, a starter at quarterback at Nevada from 2007-2010, has quarterbacked the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. Pack fans, along with football aficionados from throughout the country, have taken to the "Kaepernicking" pose in tribute to the 25-year-old University graduate.
Wednesday's 'Kaepernicking' event was part of a "whiteout" promotion - all Wolf Pack fans wearing white T-shirts - by Wolf Pack athletics.
