PROVO — BYU and UNLV have agreed on a home-and-home series to be played in 2014 and in 2015. BYU will host UNLV at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Nov. 15, 2014, and then play at UNLV on Nov. 14, 2015.

The Rebels are the first Mountain West team to schedule BYU after its departure from the conference following the 2010 season. The two teams have a lot of history, with BYU holding a 15-3 overall record against UNLV.

“It’s good to have UNLV on our football schedule again,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “We have a very large fan base in Las Vegas who was incredibly supportive of our football team during the five-straight years we played in the Las Vegas Bowl, and all the conference games we played at UNLV. I appreciate our relationship with UNLV and look forward to this series.”
