this week. they've got central michigan in a battle that will bring the two together for the 5th time in school history and 2nd time in mount pleasant. it's not going to be easy, the chippawas are coming off a win over nationally ranked oklahoma state. but looking at the history between these two schools it kinda makes a wish unlv could play em every week.

((chris maathuis)) the rebels are 1-1 on the young season...
since unlv football first starting taking snaps in 1968... they've gone to four bowl games, winning three. so if there's a message... it comes from the past... they won and celebrated... henry bailey/former rebel;' "the rebels are for real, rebel football is here to stay, rebel football is here to stay." ((chris maathuis)) but since you know the history... nothing can be taking for a mike hughes/tackle;"we've got to get in there and get with the guys and make that our mindset, our backs against the wall, lets go now." david greene/rb;"i'm kind of still living in the moment, but i know i have to let that be in the past."
