#1 Lamar to Host Rivalry Game vs. Nevada


The top-ranked Lamar Tigers will host the Nevada Tigers Friday night in the two teams' first meeting in 13 years.

Lamar is trying to stay undefeated in the "Silver Tiger" game, entering the game with a 7-0 record. Nevada is 1-6 through their first 7 games playing in the Big 8 league. Lamar hasn't lost a game since 2014, but they know that when it comes to rivalry games, you never know.

"It's a trophy game," says Lamar head coach Scott Bailey, "We talked to our kids, records don't really mean anything. Whoever score the most points gets to keep the trophy, and I think that adds a sense of excitement and a little bit of pressure to it."

"We're preparing for them like they're the best team we could ever play," adds Lamar QB Duncan Gepner, "Anyone could beat anyone on any given day, so we just go into it preparing for the worst."

Friday's game will kickoff at 7 pm. You can catch the highlights Friday night at 10 pm on KOAM and 11 pm on FOX 14.
