Fight Breaks Out After Nevada, UNLV Game
Things get ugly after Rebels overtime win.
Dirty hits and pulled off helmets.
UNLV took home the Fremont Canon and it will be painted red after its 33-30 overtime win over Nevada. However, the game will be marred with what happened after the final score.
A fight broke out after the game-winning score when Steve Jenkins caught a 19-yard pass from Kenyon Oblad.
This also was Tony Sanchez’s last game as head coach for UNLV as he has been relieved of his duties earlier this week.
It does seem that Oblad did turn his head back at Austin Arnold and may have appeared to say something which might have sparked the fight with Arnold knocking over Oblad.
The fight had many, many, many instances where things went crazy after that sucker punch.
These two images are after that blindside hit as the teams converge on each other.
Below is UNLV tight end Noah Bean throwing a Nevada player into the wall just below some fans. It is hard to tell what Wolf Pack player that is, but Bean then proceeds to go after the player he threw into the wall. That part is not clear in the video outside of him charging.
These next stills show the teams running to behind the end zone and start scuffling. The second image, hard to tell in the still, but someone from the stands rips off a UNLV players helmet.
Finally, there are Rebel players taunting the crowd. There is a glove being thrown, one doing the loser dance from Fortnite and then one waving bye. Those three can be seen more clear in the video at the end of this post.
Here is the full video of the fight from a fan and also the TV broadcast.
