We’re all down to the Fremont Cannon game tonight. The Nevada vs UNLV game is up for 9:30 PM EST later tonight. The game is going to be happening at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Whitney, Nevada. The Fremont Cannon is basically the trophy that the winner of the Battle for Nevada gets. The Battle for Nevada is a rivalry game between the Nevada Wolf Pack and the UNLV Rebels. This is a good time for the Wolf Pack to get their win for reasons I’ll make clear later on. For now, make sure that you can catch the Fremont Cannon winner game. If not by being in Nevada, then my tuning into your TV set, or better yet, watching the game online using your internet connection.

The Nevada Wolf Pack are 7-4 so far into the season. For many seasons, they have been a 7-win team. This time, although they never publicly announced it, the aim was to have 8 wins. The players and staff of the Nevada team had it down to a simple math trick: win two games per quarter. It will add up to a total of eight games.
How fortunate (or unfortunate, depending on the outcome tonight) for them that their rivalry game will clash with their aim! It is known nationwide that the Nevada Wolf Pack’s biggest rival remains to be the UNLV Rebels. Going through the Rebels to attain their goal will be a treat in itself.
The series is also in their favor. They have won two games in a row in head-to-head all-time series of this rivalry.
A good performance from players such as Max Gilliam, Lexington Thomas, and Tyleek Collins will be crucial if the UNLV Rebels want to score a win. They have been on the losing side for last two seasons. They want to get back.
Coming off a 35-28 loss at the hands of the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, the Rebels are not in good shape. But let’s see how they handle the pressure of rivalry.
