LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV football team will travel to play Big Ten Conference member Northwestern Sept. 14, 2019, Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois announced Tuesday.
UNLV will receive a guarantee of $1.2 million for the game at Ryan Field.
The two programs have met only twice before in football as the Wildcats won games played in Evanston, Illinois, in 1998 and then in Las Vegas in 2001.
The 2019 matchup will mark the third time UNLV head coach Tony Sanchez will face a Big Ten opponent as his Rebels traveled to Michigan on Sept. 19, 2015, and will head to Ohio State September 13.
"A trip to face a perennial Big Ten Conference bowl team such as Northwestern is a perfect addition to our 2019 schedule," said Reed-Francois. "We look forward to taking our program back to Evanston for the first time in more than two decades."
UNLV's 2019 non-conference schedule also includes a previously announced home game against Arkansas State September 7.

UNLV also announced that its season-opening game at Sam Boyd Stadium September 2 vs. Howard University will kick off at 6 p.m. PT.
