UNLV football team defeats UNR 27-22 in rivalry game

CREATED Oct. 27, 2013

Reno, NV (KTNV) -- The University of Nevada, Las Vegas just picked up a huge win over fellow Nevada rival University of Nevada, Reno.

The Rebels upset the Wolfpack in Reno, for the possession of the Fremont cannon.

Reno has had it for the past 8 years, UNLV hasn't defeated them since 2004.

Saturday night that all changed when UNLV picked up a 27-22 win.

The cannon is now being painted scarlet red, before heading down to Las Vegas.

That win also puts the Rebels within one game of bowl eligibility.

The team hasn't been to a bowl game since 2000.
