LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – The UNLV football team placed an eye-popping 70 players on the 2020 Fall Academic All-Mountain West Team, the conference announced Friday. That total, which ranked second in the league, shattered the program’s previous record.

“’Being-a-REBEL’ is not a four-year decision but really a lifetime commitment — that is why we take tremendous pride in getting the job done both on and off the field,” said UNLV head coach Marcus Arroyo. “Our director of student-athlete academic services David Wedley and his staff work relentlessly to ensure our players have every resource and opportunity to succeed in the classroom as we continue to raise the academic standard and graduation rate.”

To be eligible for 2020 Fall Academic All-Conference honors, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the member institution while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. The athletic contribution/participation requirement was omitted for this award this year due to the impact of COVID-19.
