UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck talks to his team after the Rebels spring football game Friday, April 20, 2012.

Two more UNLV football games will be on the ESPN family of networks, it was announced Thursday.

When the Rebels hit the road for the first time this season on Sept. 29 at Utah State, the game will stream on ESPN3.com at 5 p.m. The following week, UNLV’s 4 p.m. game at Louisiana Tech will also be available on ESPN3.com. The latter will also be made available in syndication by ESPN Regional Television, which means a local station such as KTUD may be able to pick it up. Last year KTUD had airing rights to the WAC game of the week.

UNLV’s other televised games so far include: Minnesota (8/30 at 8 p.m. on CBSSN), Washington State (9/14 at 6 p.m. on ESPN) and at Boise State (10/20 at 12:30 p.m. on NBCSN).

Regional and local telecasts for Mountain West games are expected to be released in the coming weeks while UNLV is still working on setting kickoff times for its five other home games in 2012.

  1. Already we are doing better than we were with the mtn. ESPN3 can be streamed to your TV via XBOX and other devices, and I am pretty certain the picture and production value will still blow the mtn out of the water. Also, many ESPN3 games are available as ESPN Xtra games that you can purchase and watch on TV. And as expected, regional and local broadcasts will fill in most of the rest of the blanks. Even with the mtn. in place, I was streaming games online 2x year (hawaii, reno), I don't see this year being much different. The mtn. did not broadcast any of our OOC games and especially screwed things up with the Reno game. Regardless, the bottom line is that if we win games, we will get more and more games on ESPN2 and the flagship channel. So glad the mtn is dead!

  2. In agreement JahReb...Rebs national exposure is on the upswing big time especially considering how bad we performed in the past. I've always said Las Vegas is an easy sell its almost like the powers that be are saying hurry up already and get your sh_t together so we can get out to Vegas and cover you guys.......
