Runnin' Rebels vs. BYU Cougars: Is it still a rivalry?
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Once fierce rivals, the Runnin’ Rebels and BYU Cougars will meet for the first time in nearly eight years at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday.
Their last meeting was in 2011.
It was BYU’s last season in the Mountain West Conference.
At the time, UNLV and BYU were two of the top teams in the conference, and BYU’s Jimmer Fredette was destroying defenses.
