The 48th battle for the Fremont Cannon will take place this Saturday as the Nevada Wolf Pack head south to meet the UNLV Rebels at 6 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and will air locally on the Silver State Sports & Entertainment Network.
Nevada (2-9, 0-7 MWC) will look for their first conference win of a rebuilding campaign. The Wolfpack are 125th out of 131 teams in SP+, and fell 41-14 to a resurgent Fresno State on Saturday.
UNLV (4-7, 2-5 MWC) lost their chance at a bowl bid with their unexpected 31-25 loss at Hawai’i on Saturday night. Quarterback Doug Brumfield returned and was 23-37 for 288 yards and a touchdown with an interception, but it wasn’t enough as the defense allowed the Rainbows to go 7-of-14 on third down.
