Rivalry Week for UNLV vs. Nevada

This week is rivalry week for UNLV vs. Nevada, or as I like to refer to it as Southern Nevada vs. Nevada.  This is one of my favorite games of the year.  I have traveled to Las Vegas for many years where we play on their ugly turf (not as ugly as Boise State though).  We have had the cannon for 8 years strong, and hopefully Saturday night will make it 9 years.

During this time it is always brought up about proper etiquette for how we say our name.  I know, pretty lame.  But as evidenced several times on facebook this week, it is Nevada vs. UNLV, not UNR vs. UNLV.

I am pretty excited for this game as it is always brings a sell out crowd and friends of mine who live in Las Vegas always come up for it.  Even if they are Rebel fans.  I just try to ignore it.  Now UNLV has us beat in basketball usually, but football the cannon will always bleed blue.

Are you excited for the game this weekend?
