A BRIEF HISTORY OF UNLV FOOTBALL IN THE DESERT

UNLV Football began on September 14th, 1968. Bill Ireland would be the program’s first head coach. The Rebels played the first game of their inaugural season against the St. Mary’s Gaels at Cashman Field. The Rebels defeated the Gaels 27–20 in front of 8,000 fans. In 1999, the Rebels left the WAC with seven other schools to form the Mountain West Conference, but also by announcing that the program had hired legendary collegiate and professional coach John Robinson as their eighth head coach.

Fast forward to today. The former coach of Las Vegas high school powerhouse Bishop Gorman, Tony Sanchez, is now the head coach of the Rebels and great expectations have arrived with him. QB Armani Rogers has another year in the offense under his belt and the Rebels are ready to ball out for the last year at Sam Boyd Stadium.
