Countdown To Kickoff - UNLV


By W.G. Ramirez, Special to


  • Predicted Finish - Fourth in the West Division
  • Retuning/Lost Lettermen - 50/20
  • Returning Starters - 14/10
  • Key Returner - Senior WR Devante Davis

The Skinny – UNLV made it first trip to a bowl game last season since 2000. Now the Rebels are looking at back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 1983-84. That goal seems attainable with a solid core of player returning, including thee preseason all-league selection in wide receiver Davante Davis and offensive lineman Brett Boyko and Robert Waterman.

Says Davis, on the team's success vs. his own - "I don't really get involved in numbers. My whole thing is if our team is doing great, then I figure the numbers will come. If we're winning games, then obviously I'll have a few touchdowns and a few yards. I don't get caught up in the individual numbers.
