I liked the fake punt down 21-6 late in the second quarter from the 47-yard line of Texas Christian. I like trickery on Halloween Eve.
Anson Kelton didn’t get the night off after all.
HOW THEY SCORED
This time, at least, UNLV made it past Texas Christian’s 34-yard line. And even scored. But the Rebels couldn’t point to much else positive in Saturday’s 48-6 loss to the nation’s fourth-ranked team, the highest-rated school to ever play at Sam Boyd Stadium.
A troubling offseason for UNLV senior Tre’Von Willis did bring something positive. He had knee surgery, and he could not be happier about it.
Only the first 100 spectators attending Saturday’s “Rise ‘n’ Shine with the Lady Rebels” fanfest at Cox Pavilion were promised a free continental breakfast. But everyone went home with a powdered-sugar-and-milk mustache.
