Iowa State University, in cooperation with the University of Nevada – Las Vegas (UNLV) have announced that the football game scheduled between the schools for September 19th of this year at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, has been moved to September 14, 2030. The Mountain West and Big 12 Conferences amended their respective schedules this week as the coronavirus continues to surge across the country. Iowa State is scheduled to play UNLV at the new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas in 2021.
The schools have played five teams previously, with ISU winning four of the games, although the Rebels won the last matchup, 34-31 in overtime at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas in 2008.
On Wednesday, the Mountain West Conference, a 12 school group that includes UNLV, announced that fall sports could not begin until September 26th at the earliest, giving the Rebels eight conference and up to two non-conference games.
