LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — When the UNLV football team plays Arizona State (ASU) in Las Vegas for the first time ever on Sept. 12, it will be inside its new home at Allegiant Stadium, UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois announced.

“We are extremely appreciative of the Raiders organization for working with us on hosting the Arizona State game at Allegiant Stadium,” said Reed-Francois. “Our community is energized behind new head coach Marcus Arroyo and his team as they move into one of the greatest sports facilities in the world and getting to host two Pac-12 Conference opponents there this fall will make it an even better experience for our fans and student-athletes.”

The Rebels will play six of their seven home games of the 2020 season at Allegiant Stadium.
