  • This event has passed.

November 16, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Prior to Sept. 2, 2023, Nevada Wolf Pack football had last played USC 94 years ago on November 9, 1929 at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The University of Nevada had captured national attention before the game by announcing that the football team would fly in airplanes to southern California. The team’s novel method of travel at the time earned them the nickname “The Flying Wolves” by the media.
