Football schedule addition

UCLA has added a three-game series with Nevada. The series starts with a game at the Rose Bowl in 2013.
Here’s the release from UCLA:

UCLA will host the Wolf Pack at the Rose Bowl on August 31, 2013 and Sept. 19, 2015. The Bruins will travel to Reno on Sept. 17, 2016.

“Nevada is one of the top programs in the Western Athletic Conference,” said head coach Rick Neuheisel. “In addition, two of the three games are at the Rose Bowl. Reno is an easy trip from Los Angeles, so hopefully, a lot of Bruin fans will go to support us.”

Other schools scheduled to play at Nevada in the next few seasons include Missouri, Oregon and Arizona.

UCLA’s future non-conference schedules include San Diego State (Sept. 5 at home), Tennessee (Sept. 12) and Kansas State (Sept. 19 at home) in 2009; Kansas State (Sept. 4), Houston (Sept. 11 at home) and Texas (Sept. 18) in 2010; Houston (Sept. 3), San Jose State (Sept. 10 at home) and Texas (Sept. 17 at home) in 2011; Rice (Sept. 1), Nebraska (Sept. 8 at home) and Houston (Sept. 15 at home) in 2012; and Nevada (August 31) and Nebraska (Sept. 14) in 2013.

    Pretty formidable schedule. That being said, I subscribe to the philosophy of scheduling cup cakes out of conference with the occasional ‘glamorous’ match-up.

    Playing in the Pac 10, we play a hard enough schedule year in and year out.

    I do however see how playing in nationally televised games can help recruiting, although, I do question just how many of these big game do you have to play to lock up elite local talent in California, talent that can watch our games on TV whether on ESPN or FSN.

    I still maintain that UCLA’s top priority should be recruiting southern California before extending our hands to prospects from other states, prospects whose reasonable probability of actually attending UCLA are far less then local kids.

    Just my opinion though.

    If’n ye want the best meat you gotta prowl the open range. They rear some big buffalo in the Mid-west and down Texas way. Deer fast as blazes in the Southeast. Cain’t be satisfied pluckin’ local roosters. Not if ye want to be top dog in the kennel.

    Nevada? Why not schedule Wyoming?

    I thought Kansas State dropped Ucla in 2010!

    I guess we can probably beat Nevada and we’re getting two home games out of it, but this is hardly an exciting match-up.
