You won’t see many familiar faces on this season’s UNLV squad as only Bryce Hamilton and Marvin Coleman return from last year’s team.

If you plan on attending the game you’ll have to show proof of full Covid vaccination and that policy will be in effect for all UNLV home games this season. Of the Runnin’ Rebels first six games, five will be at the Thomas & Mack and one will be at T-Mobile Arena where UNLV will play Michigan on Friday, Nov. 19 at 9:30pm in a nationally televised game.

After tonight’s game, UNLV will play California on Saturday, Nov. 13 at 5pm at the Thomas & Mack.
