against jackson state. they've never played a better season opening game known for their band, the sonic boom of the south, then their football team. the band is awesome, the football team -- not so much. prior to the game, unlv unveiled a red painted patch on the south end of the field... in honor of rich abaijan, who passed away. he was a huge unlf football supporter. he would've really enjoyed tonight's game.. .the fireworks and run out onto the field was nothing compared to the fireworks on the field. on its third play from scrimmage, unlv scores... johnny stanton connects with
