Here’s a look at the top performers from UNLV’s win over San Diego State.
The Rebels thrashed San Diego State University on Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium, thanks in large part to Devante Davis and Caleb Herring. Twitter was excited, but also found time to attack UNLV’s choice of uniform.
It never will, and shouldn’t, reach the level of intensity that is UNLV-UNR each fall, but perhaps by borrowing a page from their basketball programs, UNLV and San Diego State football also can discover a happy medium of disgust that only a true rivalry can offer.
With six Mountain West teams — and potentially more — eligible for six conference-affiliated bowl slots, UNLV would make itself more attractive to a bowl with a win over an aggressive San Diego State team that has won seven of its past eight games and has had plenty of previous success against the Rebels.
The most successful Rebels football team in 13 years could be ending the season the way so many others have if not for a key play Sept. 14 at Sam Boyd Stadium against Central Michigan.
UNLV has its own share of comebacks this football season, but the Rebels are getting ready to face the masters of finding ways to turn losses into victories.
UNLV football coach Bobby Hauck agreed to a new three-year contract, the school announced Wednesday afternoon.
Now that it’s official and Bobby Hauck will return for a fifth season and beyond as football coach at UNLV, it seems a good time to evaluate significant parts of his tenure.
Tim Hough didn’t get as many touches as the other top wide receivers in the area. But the senior at Desert Pines still caught the eye of UNLV’s coaching staff.
The bowl pairings throughout the country will be announced Dec. 8, and a lot still can happen with one week left in the regular season, but the Bowl Championship Series standings could bring Fresno State to the Las Vegas Bowl.
