2018’s edition of the Fremont Cannon game will be remembered as an epic collapse by the Wolf Pack, who blew a 23-0 first quarter lead to UNLV. And the Rebels completed an astonishing comeback and won 34-29.
2019 was almost a replay of 2018, but with the roles reversed. Almost.
UNLV sprinted out to a 17-0 lead and held a 24-13 halftime advantage, but UNR came thundering back to force the game to overtime tied at 27-27. But the Rebels came up clutch in overtime, holding the Wolf Pack to a field goal and then scoring a touchdown to win 33-30 and keep the Fremont Cannon scarlet and grey.
