Even though the Rebels played a FCS school they took care of business, not like the Falcons earlier today but this was a solid victory. The Rebels have a repeat starter under center in Omar Clayton for the first time since Kurt Nantkes in 2003-04.
This game was unexpectedly close heading into the fourth quarter before UNLV broke out with 21 points to put the game away. RB Channing Trotter lead the way with two scores within seven minutes of each other in fourth and lead the way with 101 yards on the ground, and it looks like Trotter is the replacement back to take over from Frank Summers.
Breakout candidate QB Omar Clayton had a solid game with 213 yards and a score, nothing special but ran an efficient offense. The defense was the key for UNLV tonight, by shutting down Sacramento State to under 100 yards passing and 100 yards rushing.
For UNLV's sake this win is as good as any because the history of UNLV football has not been good the past decade, so any win is a good win.
