COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The Mountain West Conference has suspended four UNLV football players and reprimanded another for their involvement in an altercation following a game against rival Nevada.
The conference announced Monday that Evan Austrie, Noah Bean, Giovanni Fauolo Sr. and Justin Polu were issued suspensions and Steve Jenkins a public reprimand for the postgame fight on Nov. 30.
Fauolo will be suspended for the first two games of the 2020 season, Bean will miss the season opener and Polu will be suspended for half a game.
Four Nevada players were suspended last week for their involvement in the fight.
UNLV beat Nevada 33-30 in overtime when freshman quarterback Kenyon Oblad hooked up with freshman receiver Steve Jenkins for a 19-yard touchdown. Right after the winning score, players from both sides began feuding in the end zone and near the stands.
