In 2018, the second year under head coach Jay Norvell, Nevada won eight games for the first time in its Mountain West history, and captured the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl in thrilling fashion with an overtime victory. Coming off a second place finish in the West Division of the Mountain West, the Pack's 2019 recruiting class has been ranked as high as second in the conference by national publications. Fall camp for the Pack opens on Aug. 1.

Nevada opens the 2019 season on Labor Day weekend when it plays host to Purdue on Aug. 30 at Mackay Stadium. The game is the back-end of a two-game series between the schools as Nevada went to Purdue in 2016. The Boilermakers will be just the second Big Ten team to travel to Mackay Stadium and the first since Nevada beat Northwestern in 2006. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. at Mackay.

The Wolf Pack will then play its second game against a Power 5 team in as many weeks as it travel to Oregon to play the Ducks on Sept. 7, before returning home to take on an old rival in Weber State on Sept. 14 at Mackay with kickoff at 4 p.m. The non-conference slate concludes on Sept. 21 with a trip to take on UTEP in El Paso.

Conference play opens Sept. 28 as Hawai`i comes to Mackay Stadium. The Pack has won two of its last eight games against the Rainbow Warriors. With five games in the books, Nevada will enjoy the first of two bye weeks on the schedule during the Oct. 5 weekend.

Nevada returns to action Oct. 12 when it plays host to San José State at Mackay at 1 p.m.. The Pack then hits the road for a pair of games against Mountain Division foes – Oct. 19 at Utah State and Oct. 26 at Wyoming – before coming home to play host to New Mexico on Nov. 2.

The Pack returns to West Division play on Nov. 9 with a trip to San Diego State to take on the Aztecs. Nevada will be looking for its second win in a row over SDSU after winning 28-24 this past season in Reno.

The second bye week is positioned the weekend of Nov. 16, giving Nevada a break before the final two regular season games. First is a showdown with West Division champion Fresno State at Bulldog Stadium in Fresno on Nov. 23.

The Battle for the Fremont Cannon against UNLV represents the regular-season finale on Nov. 30 at Mackay Stadium with kickoff at high noon.

All games listed with "ESPN Networks" as the televising entity are generally subject to the networks' 12-day selection timeline, with the kickoff time and specific broadcast network being determined 12 days before gameday.
