Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Battle of Nevada

Rival Team: UNLV Rebels

There is no love lost between Nevada and instate rivals UNLV, as these two teams have had a profound hatred for each other since they first met in 1969. Each time these teams have met since 1970 the winner of the game has walked away with the Fremont Cannon, which was introduced by Nevada alum and UNLV’s first football coach Bill Ireland. Over the years this rivalry has taken a bit of a backseat to others due to the two teams not being in the same conference. However since Nevada joined the Mountain West in 2012, the rivalry has picked up again.

Nevada vs Boise State

Rival Team: Boise State Broncos

Nevada’s rivalry with Boise State is one of their longest-running rivalries, as the two schools have met every year since 1971 with few exceptions. The rivalry goes back all the way to when both of these schools were D1-AA meaning there is a lot of history between these two teams. One of Nevada’s biggest wins in the series occurred in 2010 when the Wolf Pack knocked off the Broncos 34-31 costing them a bid to the Rose Bowl. There have been many fierce battles between these two teams, so you should expect a good game when these two foes clash.
