Nevada's Home Opener Set for Noon August 30

By  | 

RENO, NV - The Nevada football team’s home opener against Southern Utah will kickoff at noon Aug. 30, the school announced Friday.

Nevada and Southern Utah played the first-ever night game at Mackay Stadium 11 years ago. On Aug. 30, 2003, the Thunderbirds came to Mackay and Nevada pulled out a 24-23 victory in the only meeting between the teams.

Kickoff times are now set for eight of Nevada’s 12 games in 2014.

This year’s game between Nevada and Southern Utah will be broadcast at NevadaWolfPack.TV on the Mountain West Network. Nevada has nine other games slated for television broadcast and is awaiting television into on two remaining games.
