UNLV Hold off the Irish UNLV came out trying to expose a weak Notre Dame team with an easy schedule. "We knew their defense wasn't anything special. Stats are just numbers. Their film showed as much" Says Brent Williams. UNLV showed a lot of grit today. They were on fire and were playing with a passion. But it took a hold off of the Irish comeback to win. "When they were lining up for two pointer to tie, I knew we needed to make a big play and we did." Says Adam Smith. "I wasn't confident in the call to be honest. I just called a safe defense and told them to play for the win. We got a bat down and a then the ensuing onside kick." Says coach Beardown. "It was a great win." UNLV travels to Wyoming for a date with the Cowboys.
