Sam Boyd Stadium provides one of the best atmospheres among all mid-major schools in the FBS, as the fans here come out in strong numbers and the crowd is very loud. You’ll also find that the excellent in-game atmosphere is a direct translation of the strong tailgating tradition at UNLV.
On game days Sam Boyd Stadium is filled with diehard Rebels fans cheer loud and hard for their team. The fan base at UNLV is also very knowledgeable about the game and their team. Although, as compared to other schools, one unique thing about Rebels fans is that there tends to be much more discussion about the betting line and point spread in the stands.
It’s not just the fans that make a trip to Sam Boyd Stadium a memorable experience, but the excellent view also does a great job of making a trip well worth your time. From the stadium, you’ll have a great view of the nearby mountains, and you can even see the lights of the Las Vegas Strip if you’re seated in the right location.
You’ll have a great time taking in a Rebels game at Sam Boyd Stadium as the fans and beautiful view make the trip an unforgettable one.
