game day comes you go our and apply your trade." surprisingly this isn't the first time the schools have played football. they last met in 1975, here in las vegas. unlv won that game 39-2. this isn't that game, but this is what the team looked like back then. interesting fact, one of their quarterbacks this season-- jarin more-a-cow-ee is fighting for a starting nod, was once a walk-on at unlv. powerful bat, quick legs but otherwise shaky skills in a workout today for dozens of major league scouts. the former university of florida and nfl quarterback hit several long home runs and completed the 60-yard dash in about 6.7 seconds. however, the 29-year-old tebow appeared hesitant in the outfield and was repeatedly fooled by off-speed pitches we're already into our second week of our "fan's choice game of the week." this is for 'you' the fans... so go to our 8 news now facebook page. here's a look at the three
