Football Time Set; Basketball Time Changed
Nov. 18, 2013
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV football's Nov. 30 regular-season finale against San Diego State at Sam Boyd Stadium has been selected to be televised by ESPNU, which set the kickoff time for 7:30 p.m. PT, the Mountain West Conference announced Monday.
The time chosen by ESPNU created a conflict with a previously scheduled UNLV men's basketball game. However, the Runnin' Rebels will now host UT Martin at the Thomas & Mack Center three hours earlier, tipping off at 4:00 p.m. PT. The game will still be televised locally by Cox 96.
The UNLV women's basketball team will start off the day's action that Saturday by hosting Fordham as part of the Lady Rebel Round-Up at the Cox Pavilion. Tipoff is set for 1:00 p.m.
"I want to thank Head Coach Dave Rice and everyone involved in helping us move around some things so UNLV fans won't have to choose between watching their Runnin' Rebels or their Rebel football team," said UNLV Interim Director of Athletics Tina Kunzer-Murphy. "Both UT Martin and our TV partners over at Cox Communications were very helpful in making the change on what will be the busiest day of the year for our department."
The Rebel football team (5-5/3-3) continues its drive toward becoming bowl eligible when it plays at Air Force this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. PT. That game will also be televised by ESPNU.
Tickets to all three UNLV events on Nov. 30 are available by calling (702) 739-FANS (3267) or visiting unlvtickets.com.
