UNLV vs. Nevada
Appropriately named The Battle For Nevada, this is the biggest football rivalry in the State of Nevada. Since 1970 the winner of the game has been awarded the Fremont Cannon, which is one of the biggest and most iconic trophies in college football. The wheels and base of the trophy are painted in the winning team’s colors, adding to the incentive to bring the trophy home. This game has it all, with division and conference implications, massive impact on in-state recruiting, and major state bragging rights on the line.
UNLV vs. BYU
This series has been played over 17 times since the teams first met in 1978. The game was contested as a conference rivalry when both the Rebels and Cougars were members of the WAC, and later the MWC. The future of the rivalry was put into question when the Cougars left the MWC to become an independent, but the willingness of both programs to contest the game in the non-conference has delighted fans that hope this great rivalry continues.
2011 UNLV Football Preview
UNLV stumbled to a 2-11 record in 2010, often struggling to put up points against even the softest Mountain West defenses. That was in head coach Bobby Hauck's first year as coach, so for his sophomore campaign he has some pieces in place to make a marked improvement. The rebuilding process is a long one, but UNLV is taking the right steps.
The offense will be led by sophomore quarterback Caleb Herring, who saw time in eight games last season and has a great deal of athletic ability. However, he'll have to learn on the go, but he'll have to reliable targets to throw to in senior receivers Phillip Payne and Michael Johnson, both of whom started on last year's team.
Though the offense has a few talented weapons in its arsenal, such is not the case on the defense. With only three starters returning, it may be tough for the Rebels to find a cohesive unit. Still, they have the talent to be competitive with the likes of senior B.J. Bell up front and senior Will Chandler anchoring the secondary. They will have to make their veteran status known and challenge the rest of the young defense if they want to improve on last year’s abysmal record.
2010 UNLV Football Preview
The beauty of college football is that a lengthy offseason and constant personnel changes give every single team the chance for a fresh start. Entering 2010, the UNLV Rebels are looking to turn a page in their program's history by hiring former Montana coach Bobby Hauck as its new head coach. After several years in the basement of the Mountain West Conference followed by back-to-back 5-7 seasons, the Rebels are coming into the new season hoping to infuse a new winning culture to the program.
Joining Huack will be former Utah State coach Brent Guy as the new linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator. UNLV can only hope that the new addition will improve upon its 115th national ranking in total defense last year and get them to a bowl game for the first time since 2000. The Rebels will field returning quarterback Omar Clayton, who compiled a solid 123.38 passer rating last season, while throwing for more than 2,200 yards and 13 touchdowns.
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas will kick off its season at home against Wisconsin on September 4th, and play its first conference game on September 11th against Utah.
2009 UNLV Football Preview
Last season was the best season yet for the UNLV Rebels under Head Coach Mike Sanford. UNLV doubled their win total from previous seasons and barely missed becoming bowl eligible. 2009 should be an even better season for the Rebels, one that many UNLV fans are hoping will be capped with a bowl berth.
2008 UNLV Football Preview
The University of Nevada at Las Vegas Rebel football program has certainly struggled in recent years to compete in the Mountain West Conference (MWC), but things look like they may be turning around for the team. Rebels coach Mike Sanford is making some coaching changes and shaking things up in Las Vegas. He looks to use the experience he gained at Utah under coach Urban Meyer, before Meyer left to coach Florida to a national championship. Sam Boyd Stadium will rock this season as UNLV fans look for a big turnaround.
