The UNLV football team will be honoring victims from Sunday night’s Las Vegas shooting and the first responders who were quick to arrive on the scene and usher concertgoers to safety.
UNLV will hold its special tribute before Saturday’s game against San Diego State.
According to the official release, “the pregame ceremony will honor the victims and recognize representatives from first-responder organizations, medical personnel and other local heroes. It will also include a full-field, 100-yard American Flag during the national anthem.”
Along with the pre-game ceremony, the Rebels will be wearing a special helmet for the game.
UNLV provided a first look at their new helmet on social media.

It’s a classy gesture from the program as the Las Vegas community continues to rally together after such a horrible tragedy.
Kickoff between UNLV and San Diego State is set for 10:45 p.m. ET at Sam Boyd Stadium.
The game will air live on ESPN2.
