UNLV football honors victims, local heroes of Las Vegas tragedy

College Football, UNLV Rebels, San Diego State Aztecs

The UNLV football team is rallying together in support of its local community after the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip took the lives of 58 people and injured more than 500.

Rebels head coach Tony Sanchez told ESPN's Coley Harvey that his charge ahead of Saturday's home game versus San Diego State was for his players to realize they can be a unifying force for the city.

A pregame ceremony was held at Sam Boyd Stadium, and both the Rebels and Aztecs had red-ribbon decals affixed to their helmets. All visitors in attendance also received a wearable ribbon.

This weekend, ESPN provided ongoing coverage of UNLV's tribute to the victims of the tragedy.
