An old rival in a familiar setting — a “neutral” game in Las Vegas.

The BYU basketball non-conference schedule is shaping up nicely.

Another announcement about the Cougar hoops schedule was reported by Jon Rothstein:

According to Rothstein’s report, the game will be played at the “neutral site” of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 15. The Runnin’ Rebels and the Cougars are, of course, old foes from when they shared a conference. This will be the 35th meeting between the two programs. UNLV hold the advantage over the Cougars taking 18 games. The last time the two teams met was on February 5, 2011 when BYU won 78-64 as Jimmer Fredette scored 29 points on Tre’Von Willis.

Here is a quick video to relive that game:

BYU has also schedule a road game at Mississippi State and a home game against Dave Rose’s alma mater the Houston Cougars.
