LAS VEGAS – The UNLV football team will be playing in a New Year’s Day bowl game. The Rebels will face North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on January 1, 2014 in the Cotton Bowl.
The game will air on ESPNU at 9 a.m. Las Vegas time.
This will mark just the fourth bowl game in UNLV history and the first since the 2000 Las Vegas Bowl. It will be the Rebels’ first bowl game outside of Las Vegas since the 1984 California Bowl. UNLV is 7-5, while North Texas is 8-4.
An interesting note to the matchup, UNLV’s outgoing President Neal Smatresk will be taking over the same position at North Texas.
