UNLV-West Virginia Time, TV Set
July 1, 2010
LAS VEGAS - UNLV's football game at West Virginia on Oct. 9 will begin at 12:30 p.m. PT and be shown live in Las Vegas on KVVU-TV Fox 5, the school announced Thursday.
The non-conference clash will be televised by ESPN Regional's BIG EAST Network and be picked up here by the Fox affiliate.
The Rebels will be making a rare cross-country trip for a first-ever meeting with the traditionally powerful Mountaineers and mark the first time the program will play a team from the Big East Conference. UNLV football last played in the Eastern Time Zone on Sept. 5, 2004, at Tennessee.
With the announcement, the time and television plans remain to be determined for only one game of the 2010 season - UNLV's visit to Hawaii on Dec. 4.
The Rebels open their season under new head coach Bobby Hauck by hosting Wisconsin on Sept. 4 at 8 p.m. PT.
