Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels

The Rebels' main rival is the University of Nevada, Reno (Nevada) Wolf Pack, who are also in the Mountain West Conference. As the two major universities located in the state of Nevada, the schools celebrate a heated rivalry in several sports. The most well-known of these games is the Battle for Nevada, a football game held each year in which the winner takes home the Fremont Cannon, a refurbished 19th century howitzer that is the largest and most expensive trophy in collegiate football.[citation needed] Many of the Rebels teams have variations of the team name, such as the Runnin' Rebels for men's basketball; Hustlin' Rebels was an unofficial nickname for the baseball team, but it's not used any longer.
