June 7, 2012

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Television information and kickoff times announced Thursday by ESPN as part of the Western Athletic Conference's broadcast package involved two UNLV football games.

The Rebels' first road date of the 2012 season, at Utah State on Saturday, Sept. 29, will be available online via ESPN3 and start at 5 p.m. PT. The very next week, UNLV's game at Louisiana Tech (Saturday, Oct. 6) will kick off at 4 p.m. PT and be shown on ESPN3 as well as in syndication by ESPN Regional Television (ERT).

Thursday's news means five of UNLV's 13 games have now been assigned a start time and broadcast entity. Last month, the Mountain West announced that the Rebels will open the league's slate of national TV games by hosting Minnesota on Thursday, Aug. 30. The game will kick off at 8 p.m. PT and appear on CBS Sports Network.

Two weeks later, head coach Bobby Hauck's squad will host Washington State on Friday, Sept. 14 in a game that will be shown live on ESPN beginning at 6 p.m. PT. It will mark the Rebels' first time hosting a game on ESPN since it downed Toledo in 2003.

Finally, UNLV's trip to play at Boise State on Saturday, Oct. 20, will kick off at 12:30 p.m. PT and be televised by NBC Sports Network.

More information about regional and local telecasts for Mountain West games is expected to be released by the conference in the coming weeks.

Kickoff times for UNLV's five other home games are still to be determined.
