Staff Report

Single-game tickets for Nevada’s six home football games in 2015 — five of which are slated for day-time kickoffs — went on sale Wednesday. The Wolf Pack’s home slate for the upcoming season consists of two nonconference games, four Mountain West contests and five day games.

Tickets will be available for purchase at http://www.NevadaWolfPack.com or by calling the ticket office at 775-348-PACK. Single-game ticket prices start at $23 for general seating, plaza reserved and the family section at Mackay Stadium.

Nevada opens the season Sept. 3 against UC Davis in the lone night game of the home schedule. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.

This will be the 54th meeting between the two nearby programs, as the Wolf Pack leads the series history 29-21-3.

The Wolf Pack return to Mackay the following week, hosting Pac-12 foe Arizona on Sept. 19 at 4 p.m. The Wildcats won 10 games last season and played in the Fiesta Bowl. Last year’s meeting between Nevada and Arizona resulted in fireworks, but the Wildcats slipped past the Pack 35-28 in Tucson despite a strong effort from Nevada.

Nevada opens Mountain West play at Mackay Stadium with the annual Battle for Nevada against UNLV on Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. The Wolf Pack look to keep the Fremont Cannon in Reno for the 10th time in the past 11 years. Nevada holds the series advantage against its rivals to the south, 24-16.

New Mexico comes to town the following week as the Wolf Pack host the Lobos on Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. This will be the first meeting between the two programs since 2012 — a 31-24 Wolf Pack victory in Albuquerque.

The homecoming game is scheduled for Oct. 24 when Nevada hosts Hawaii at 1 p.m. The Wolf Pack is 6-1 all-time against Hawaii at Mackay Stadium. Nevada rushed for 299 yards in a 26-18 victory last season in Honolulu.

The Wolf Pack’s final home game will be Nov. 14 against San José State at 1 p.m. Nevada is scheduled to honor 12 seniors that day with senior day ceremonies prior to kickoff. The Pack lead the series history with the Spartans, 18-8-2.

The best way to watch all the action at Mackay Stadium this year is with season tickets, which start at $99. Contact the Wolf Pack ticket office for information.
