Friday, September 19, 2014
No intra-conference games this week and it’s the last time that will happen this season, so soak it in. The weekend starts with Hawaii trying to get the Mountain West to 2-0 against Colorado this year (Colorado State) and the marquee game is probably the one involving another Pac-12 team.

Reminders of Devante Davis’ past will pop up all over the stands and field Saturday at Houston’s TDECU Stadium. If he’s not careful that past might collide with his present in the form of Cougars senior linebacker and childhood friend Derrick Mathews.

Rebels not getting necessary results this season on most important down
UNLV football:
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
It’s the most important down in football, according to many folks, and UNLV coach Bobby Hauck happens to be one of them. What a team accomplishes during third down on both sides of the ball often dictates who wins the game, and when you’re so bad during those plays on one side it might negate whatever you accomplish the other way.

Rebels’ comeback comes up short in 48-34 loss to Northern Illinois
UNLV Football:
Saturday, September 13, 2014
There’s plenty for UNLV and its followers to dwell on if they so choose after tonight’s 48-34 loss to Northern Illinois at Sam Boyd Stadium. Most would probably start with the Rebels’ third-down defense, which allowed the Huskies to convert on 15-of-19 attempts. That sustained many of their long, methodical scoring drives ...

There was finally reason to believe, at least for a moment, that UNLV was going to be able to dig out of its 23-point hole. The Rebels stormed back and tied the game, fell back behind, and then got into position to tie the game again. But it wasn't enough.

Rebels football:
Friday, September 12, 2014
Once a ball is kicked off, the kicker’s job is often perceived to be done. The coverage team is tasked with tracking down the returner, and if that ball carrier breaks through to that last line of defense — the guy who gave him the ball in the first place — it’s usually a cringe-worthy moment ...

Tuesday, September 9, 2014
Bobby Hauck was trying to explain the sustained success of another program and couldn’t quite find the words. There’s nuance in individual games or even seasons, but when the UNLV coach tried to step back and look at the bigger picture of a program that’s been to a bowl game in eight of the last 10 years spanning three different coaching tenures, the most obvious answer felt the most appropriate.
