Posted: Updated:

From the University of Nevada, Reno: 

The Nevada football team will play at least two day games at home in the upcoming season as the Wolf Pack announced a pair of daytime kickoffs for Jay Norvell’s first season as the head coach.

The Wolf Pack’s game against Idaho State on Sept. 16 will kick-off at 4 p.m. at Mackay Stadium as the Bengals visit Reno for the first time since 1991. The Wolf Pack leads the all-time series against the Bengals 18-11.

Nevada’s game against UNLV on Nov. 25 will begin at 1 p.m. at Mackay as the Rebels and Wolf Pack will play a Governor’s Series matchup to close out the regular season. Nevada won last year’s game 45-10 in Las Vegas, earning three points in the series and the honor of the tie-breaker with proved to be the difference as Nevada won this year’s Governor’s Series championship.

Nevada owns a 25-17 lead in the all-time rivalry series in football and the Pack is 13-8 all-time at Mackay Stadium against UNLV. This year’s game, on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, marks the latest Nevada has played UNLV in a year at Mackay.

The two games were not selected for national television broadcasts via the Mountain West’s partnerships with ESPN and CBS Sports. Game times are subject to change, per the conference’s television contracts.
