The Rebels are the first Mountain West team to schedule BYU after its departure from the conference following the 2010 season. The two teams have a lot of history, with BYU holding a 15-3 overall record against UNLV.
“It’s good to have UNLV on our football schedule again,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “We have a very large fan base in Las Vegas who was incredibly supportive of our football team during the five-straight years we played in the Las Vegas Bowl, and all the conference games we played at UNLV. I appreciate our relationship with UNLV and look forward to this series.”
