UNR quarterback Cody Fajardo is exactly the type of quarterback the Rebels don’t want to see. They will try to keep him from making big plays on the ground and in the air when the teams meet Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Five players to watch when UNLV’s football team plays UNR at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium.
I would think fairness should matter to all athletic conferences across the country when it comes to membership and ensuring everyone within the framework has an equal opportunity at success. In this sense, the Mountain West and its TV contract for football has failed miserably for many schools, particularly UNLV.
This week, of course, is the big one against Reno, and it’s going to be a great day.
The Las Vegas Bowl likely will get Boise State or Colorado State out of the Mountain West, a team that should be ranked at the time of the Dec. 20 kickoff. The field is wide open in the Pac-12 Conference.
Five key questions as UNLV’s football team prepares for Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. game against UNR at Sam Boyd Stadium.
Hall of Fame basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian was released from Valley Hospital Medical Center on Monday night after spending almost a week at the facility.
UNLV’s football team is putting Saturday’s 37-35 loss at Hawaii in the past. The Rebels have enough to think about with UNR coming to town this weekend.
The clock didn’t work in UNLV’s favor on Saturday at Hawaii. Now time is about to run out on the Rebels’ season, and they have to quickly bounce back from the tough loss with UNR coming to town.
There are different kinds of wins in sports. Ones when you outplay an opponent. Ones when you don’t and still succeed. Ones when you make your owns breaks. Ones when the other guys break down. UNLV’s basketball team had another kind Saturday. “This was a character win,” Rebels coach Dave Rice said.
A furious rally by quarterback Blake Decker couldn’t survive the magic of a touchdown pass with no time on the clock, and Hawaii defeated UNLV, 37-35, on Saturday night in Honolulu.
Chris Wood and Goodluck Okonoboh played well for the Rebels Saturday night against Temple, and Dave Rice righted the ship after a bad loss on Friday.
UNLV is a 3.5-point underdog against Temple in the consolation game of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at the Barclays Center today at 4 p.m.
Chris Wood scored 16 of his career-high 18 points in the second half to carry UNLV to a 57-50 victory over Temple in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic third-place game at the Barclays Center. Wood, a 6-foot-11-inch sophomore forward, also tied his career high with 13 rebounds.
The football season became a lost cause weeks ago, the coach’s job is anything but secure, and the stability of the program is again in question. So if UNLV’s players were going to check out on what little remains of the season, it wouldn’t be a big surprise. Except the Rebels finish against opponents that should get their full attention.
The UNLV women’s basketball team shot only 31 percent from the field in a 79-60 loss to Missouri on Friday night in the Rainbow Wahine Classic at Honolulu.
After all the difficulty UNLV had with Stanford on Friday night, it’s probably fortunate the Rebels will not be playing a top-10 opponent like Duke on Saturday. Not that Temple is an easy draw.
Is there such a thing as a season-defining moment for a college basketball team in just its fourth game? For UNLV, it will find out Saturday.
This is going to be a team that begins and ends with the backcourt performance. Friday night’s debacle is a prime example.
Anthony Brown and Chasson Randle, a pair of senior guards, took UNLV’s highly touted freshmen to school and introduced them to big-time college basketball. It was a rude introduction.
UNLV is a 7.5-point underdog when they face Stanford in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at the Barclays Center today at 4 p.m.
It’s a story Goodluck Okonoboh has told countless times. He is fortunate to tell it, though, so he never tires of it.
Winds of change could be gusting in Honolulu on Saturday night, when Bobby Hauck, a beleaguered football coach on the hot seat, guides UNLV into one of his biggest games of the season.
