Hello Rebel fans! I hope you're all enjoying the college football season as much as I am. The UNLV Rebels are 1-2 after playing Minnesota, Arizona and Central Michigan. The Rebels lost the first 2 games of the season and it was looking pretty sad for UNLV football fans. Coincidentally, it had been raining for a couple weeks in Las Vegas -- pretty dark & dreary.
Things changed last Saturday. We woke up to a sunny, hot day. I had to go out to Sam Boyd Stadium at 10 a.m. for my daughter to practice for her half-time performance with the RebelStarzz cheer/dance group. I had a feeling when I left the stadium around 11 a.m. that I would be leaving happy later again that evening.
We got our there to tailgate at 4 p.m. We were lucky to get featured in this Reb Zone show (around the 15 minute mark) http://youtu.be/M9cvADaj9Yo
After Central Michigan scored the first 3 touchdowns of the game, it wasn't looking too great for Rebel fans. But right before the first half ended, the Rebels scored a TD. Then they came out of the locker room for the second half on fire. They scored the next 24 points and the defense was incredible including 2 interceptions. So those who stayed to the end, were able to enjoy their first Rebel win in what seemed like FOREVER!
This Saturday night the Rebs play at 6 p.m. at Sam Boyd Stadium vs. Western Illinois. Tickets are 2 for 1 so get to the T&M box office this week to get yours!!
This will be the first home football game I'm missing in a long time. I am heading to upstate NY for a wedding but I will surely be watching the game via twitter during the reception! If you know where the tailgate spot is, there will still be people out there tailgating so feel free to join them!
I'm including some pictures of the last few weekends. See you all on October 12 at the UNLV vs. Hawaii football game.
