Mike Sanford has coached UNLV to its best start in five years, but one major hole remains on his resume.
The latest UNLV football loss to UNR is over, which means Wolf Pack coach Chris Ault is somewhere dancing on a couch wearing a lampshade and the Rebels now can just have nightmares about tackling Frankie Albert rather than looking pathetic trying to do so.
UNLV senior wide receiver Casey Flair inched closer to the Rebels’ career records for receptions and receiving yards Saturday, and he also closed in on the school mark for consecutive games with a catch.
The telephone rang a few Saturday evenings ago, and Glenn Carano answered. A cowboy was calling, his old wide receiver Mike Haverty.
Four games into the season, UNLV’s football team has taken some giant steps.
Note: The Review-Journal and Reno Gazette-Journal exchanged previews of tonight’s game to print in each other’s Saturday Sports section. The following is from the Gazette-Journal:
UNLV tailback David Peeples has been waiting to get back on a football field, and waiting for this weekend for his final shot at those despised neighbors from the north.
UNLV football coach Mike Sanford expects some surprises from Chris Ault on Saturday after the UNR coach had an extra week to prepare.
As far as the UNLV football team is concerned, Rudy Carpenter has nothing on Diondre Borel or Austen Arnaud.
