LAS VEGAS - Research this week revealed that UNLV sophomore quarterback Omar Clayton has broken the school record for consecutive pass attempts without throwing an interception with 118.

Clayton has no picks in 90 attempts this fall and his last interception came on the final play of the first half at Wyoming on Oct. 27, 2007. His active streak of 118 currently ranks fourth in the nation and broke the previous Rebel record of 109 by Jared Brown in 1994.

UNLV is the only FBS team in the nation to not have turned the ball over through three games. Florida and Tulsa, both of whom have played two games, are the only other squads that have not turned the ball over.

Clayton and the Rebels' turnover perfection will be challenged on Saturday as they host Iowa State of the Big 12 Conference. The Cyclones lead the nation with 12 takeaways in 2008, including seven interceptions.

Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. PT. Tickets are available by calling (702) 739-FANS or logging on to
