Chicago Cubs give shoutout to UNLV Football

They used the same gigantic flag.

Saturday afternoon at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, the UNLV Rebels observed Veteran’s Day prior to their Mountain West Conference matchup with the Wyoming Cowboys. The presentation was nothing short of spectacular.

An impressive sight, for sure. That’s no ordinary gigantic football field sized flag. The flag unfurled Saturday has been featured at 12 World Series meetings and most recently it was used during the Chicago Cubs championship run.

The Cubs Twitter account responded to the shoutout.

The flag has been good luck so far. The upset-minded Rebels continue to hang with the Cowboys, up 37-31 late in the third.
