GOVERNOR'S SERIES PRESENTED BY NV ENERGY: This weekend's three-game MW series with UNLV is part of the Governor's Series Presented by NV Energy. Three points will be awarded to the winner of the season series with the Rebels. On October 8, 2012 Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval announced the launch of the Governor's Series, presented by NV Energy. This historic, new competition establishes a formal head-to-head athletic and academic challenge between longtime rivals -- the UNLV Rebels and the Nevada Wolf Pack. The all-encompassing competition will annually crown one school the winner of the Governor's Series. UNLV currently leads 28.5 to 10.5 and has clinched the inaugural cup. Just two sports remain to determine the final score, baseball and outdoor track & field. Three points will be awarded for sport-by-sport comparison of APR scores (school with the most "wins" by sport in the head-to-head comparisons will be awarded 3 points).

NEVADA ON RADIO: Nevada baseball can be heard on ESPN Radio 1450 AM with Hall of Fame announcer Don Marchand calling the action. Pregame starts 15 minutes prior to first pitch.
