unlv3857 Rebels Fall Again

The UNLV football team remains winless on the season after a disappointing performance at Idaho over the weekend. The Rebels were nearly shut out, falling to Idaho 30-7 at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow, Idaho. UNLV fell to 0-3, and is still seeking its first win under first-year head coach Bobby Hauck. The Rebel offense did next to nothing for most of the night, failing to dent the scoreboard until backup quarterback Caleb Herring threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to receiver Philip Payne with 1:19 left in the game. UNLV managed just 187 yards in total offense, including just 59 on the ground. Starting quarterback Omar Clayton completed just 3-of-8 passes for 41 yards before giving way to Herring early in the second half. Herring was 4-of-7 for 87 yards and the TD. But Hauck said Clayton will start again next week. Channing Trotter led the Rebels on the ground with 62 yards on 15 carries. The Rebels will go for their first win this Saturday night when 0-3 New Mexico comes to Sam Boyd Stadium. UNLV is already a 10-point favorite. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
