Apparently, UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck believes in the mantra, “Let’s play for 60 minutes.”
Trailing 38-10 on the road at Utah, Hauck attempted a fake field goal from the Utah 1-yard line with under a minute remaining in the game.
On the fake field goal attempt, freshman kicker Nolan Kohorst received a flip of the ball from the hold, but was tackled in the backfield by a host of Utah defenders.
Following the game, Hauck said, “Why not try something. Nothing else was working.”
“We sign up to play for 60 minutes, so we’re going to play for 60 minutes,” Hauck said. “We weren’t in position to take a knee. If we were in the position to take a knee, we would have taken a knee.”
UNLV travels to Idaho next Saturday. Kick-off is set for 10:30 EST.
