Mayor Goodman Proclaims Saturday Rebel Red Day|
Nov. 27, 2013
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -- Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman has proclaimed Saturday, Nov. 30, Rebel Red Day in the city of Las Vegas as the UNLV football team goes for its seventh win in its final home game against San Diego State. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. at Sam Boyd Stadium.
"Our Rebels and Coach Bobby Hauck are already bowl eligible, and I'm inviting everyone to put on your UNLV colors and root the team on to a regular season-ending victory against the San Diego State Aztecs," Mayor Goodman said. "I'm so proud that the team brought the Fremont Cannon back to Las Vegas and I'm excited to see the team end the season on a high note."
Mayor Goodman has annually bet with Reno Mayor Bob Cashell on the outcome of the annual game between UNLV and the University of Nevada, Reno Wolf Pack. This year's bet required the loser to wear the jersey of the winning team to two City Council meetings. Mayor Goodman also attempted to bet Mayor Cashell the Truckee River, and is waiting to hear if that part of the wager will be paid off.
The football game will cap off a triple header for the athletic department. The day will start at 1:00 p.m. as the women's basketball team takes on Fordham in the Cox Pavilion in the first game of the Lady Rebel Round-Up. At 4:00 p.m. the men's basketball team will host UT Martin at 4:00 p.m. It will be the last time to see the Runnin' Rebels in Las Vegas until December 18, as they will be on the road to accommodate the National Finals Rodeo. Finally the football team will host the Aztecs.
