LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The Rebel baseball program, which is off the second-best start in program history, entered the week ranked No. 23 in Collegiate Baseball's NCAA Division I Poll. UNLV returns to Las Vegas and Earl E. Wilson Stadium for four straight, nonconference games, three of which are against the Big Ten's Iowa Hawkeyes and one more versus the Pac-12's Utah Utes.

The Scarlet & Gray enters this weekend's action after it split a pair of midweek, nonconference affairs in the Golden State. The Rebels opened the defense of their national ranking with a 4-0 loss to CSU Bakersfield Tuesday night, but rebounded with a come-from-behind win at CSUN Wednesday afternoon.

Iowa (8-2) heads to Southern Nevada after a it went 2-1 in Birmingham, Alabama, against the UAB Blazers. The Hawkeyes won the first two games (4-1 and 11-3), but lost the third contest (4-0), which snapped a four-game win streak that included victories over New Orleans and Cornell College. Overall, the team has gone 4-1 and 4-1 in a pair of five-game stretches.

Utah (0-11) will make its way to Las Vegas Monday afternoon after it plays three straight in Riverside, California, against UC Riverside - a team UNLV defeated in Riverside, 6-1, one week ago. The Utes have played all 11 games, thus far, on the road with three in Tulsa, Oklahoma (Oral Roberts), four in Surprise, Arizona (two each vs. Ohio State and Nebraska) and four more in the Bay Area (three at Santa Clara and one at San Jose State).
