The Prairie View A&M Panthers will play at the UNLV Rebels in 2018, the school announced on Wednesday.
PVAMU will travel to take on UNLV at Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018. The game will be only the second-ever meeting between the two schools following a 63-28 UNLV victory back in 1974.
Prairie View A&M is a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Panthers finished the 2017 season 6-5 overall and 4-3 in SWAC play.
The addition of PVAMU completes the non-conference portion of UNLV’s 2018 football schedule. The Rebels are scheduled to open the season at USC on Sept. 1, host UTEP on Sept. 8, and travel to Arkansas State on Sept. 22.
In Mountain West play in 2018, the UNLV Rebels will host Air Force, Fresno State, Nevada, and New Mexico and will travel to Hawaii, San Diego State, San Jose State, and Utah State.
