What you need to know about UNLV
The Rebels gave Fresno State all they could handle last week despite falling by a touchdown at home. Running back Aidan Robbins was the star for UNLV, rushing 26 times for 144 yards and a touchdown. Robbins' 66 yard touchdown run on fourth down tied the score at 27 before the Bulldogs took over in the final nine minutes. On the season, the Rebels' leading rusher has 850 yards and nine scores on 172 attempts.
The UNLV offense is led by dual threat QB Doug Brumfield, who threw for 172 yards and rushed for 60 more and a touchdown against the Bulldogs last week. Brumfield has completed nearly 66% of his passes this season for 1,610 yards with nine touchdowns and four interceptions. He's also added 202 yards and six scores on the ground. Against a Hawaii defense which ranks fifth worst in the nation against the run, Brumfield and Robbins are likely to pose major problems for the Rainbow Warriors.
