Highlights from UNLV football coach Bobby Hauck’s portion of the Mountain West Conference teleconference. His Rebels (0-2) play at Idaho (1-1) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
On whether he has seen improvement in games against two ranked teams to open the season: "It comes down to wins and losses. When you play top-20 teams, it’s hard to win. So, yeah, it’s difficult. … All you get out of it is a loss."
On Idaho coach Robb Akey: "Their head coach is a fired-up guy, and that’s the way they play."
On Vandals quarterback Nathan Enderle: "Their quarterback is an NFL prospect."
