REBEL FOOTBALL QUICK FACTS
- Last season, UNLV played 14 true freshmen, the fifth-highest number in college football. No less than 23 total freshmen played at least one game last fall, which ranked seventh in the nation. And the young talent is starting to show (see the next two bullets):
- The Rebels placed four players on the Rivals.com Freshman All-MW Team in 2010 – all of whom were true freshmen: CB Sidney Hodge, DE Ian Bobak, PK Nolan Kohorst and KOR Marcus Sullivan.
- UNLV rookie running back Tim Cornett became the first freshman to ever lead the Rebels in rushing in a season in 2010. Cornett also tied the freshmen school record for touchdowns in a season with eight.
- Last season, UNLV faced the 19th-toughest schedule in the nation… The Rebels faced nine bowl squads, five ranked teams and five schools that won at least a share of their respective conference championship.
SEASON TICKETS AS LOW AS $75
We wanted to give more people access to becoming a season ticket holder this season so we introduced a new entry level Value Zone season ticket package for just $75. There is nothing like owning season tickets for a team and being able to take your buddies out to a game or spending time with your family. It’s the best value in town… We also have our great Endzone season ticket package for just $100 and Sideline season tickets are $185… Many of the sideline season tickets also include Rebel Athletic Fund scholarship donations, but we even lowered many of these this year to make Rebel Football more accessible for fans… Remember, money spent on tickets for UNLV Football goes to help our department grow our student-athletes and we appreciate that support more than you know… For ticket information, call (702) 739-FANS or visit unlvtickets.com today.

KICK-OFF THE SEASON ON ESPN – THURSDAY, SEPT. 1
Last year we had one of the Top 20 schedules in the nation and one of the toughest ever for a non-BCS team. This season starts off with a huge challenge as well, but we are excited about the opportunity as we open the year at Wisconsin on Thursday, Sept. 1 at 5 p.m. PT on ESPN. The following week, we will be at Washington State out of the Pac-12… Obviously, our guys will be challenged early with two difficult road games. But with great challenge comes the chance for great opportunity. After the two road games to start the season, we are hoping our fans will give our guys tremendous support at our first two home games on Sept. 17 (Hawaii) and 24 (Southern Utah).
“QUICK HITS” WITH BOBBY HAUCK
Throughout the season, we’ll be giving fans a unique look into play design from Coach Hauck through short “Quick Hits” videos on RebelTV, which is hosted on UNLVRebels.com… Click here for a sample of “Quick Hits.”
