  Charles Williams rushed for a career-high 266 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead UNLV to a 27-13 win over Hawaii on Saturday. Williams, already UNLV's career rushing leader, had a school-record 38 carries and rushed for 200 yards for the second time in his career. He became the fourth UNLV player to go over 1,000 in a season twice. In the process, he passed Boise State's Jay Ajayi to move into fourth place on the Mountain West Conference career rushing list with 4,035 yards. He has rushed for 32 career touchdowns, including a personal-best 13 this season.

Williams' 7-yard score gave the Rebels a 17-10 lead early in the second half. Matthew Shipley's 43-yard field goal got the Rainbow Warriors within 20-13 early in the fourth quarter before Williams added his final touchdown on a 47-yard run with under two minutes to go.

  The demands of being a football player at UNLV and a young father collided on Tuesday for senior running back Charles Williams. It meant he couldn't accompany his four-month-old daughter, Kamiyah, to her doctor's appointment. She was due for a round of booster shots and Williams didn't want to miss out on the milestone. So when he finally had his first break of the day, he FaceTimed his girlfriend, Mika, with the hope of comforting his baby girl: "Hey, you're going to be OK. … These shots are going to go well," he told her. "That was something to me like 'Yeah, this dude gets it,'" said David Wedley, who works with the football team as a director of student-athlete academic services. "He understands. He's mature. It's the final stamp of approval for this young man and what everybody thinks of him."

Williams is back at UNLV for his sixth and final season as one of the most productive players in school history. He's the program's first academic All-American. He'll juggle graduate courses this fall with his family and football as he approaches the school's career rushing record. Duties befit for one of the program's leaders "He's mature. He's got a good voice in the locker room...Those are culture things that are going to resonate," said Rebels coach Marcus Arroyo. "I'm excited to see him healthy in our system." - Las Vegas Review Journal

  Tate Martell did not suit up on the first day of UNLV training camp, but it's only a matter of time before the high-profile transfer jumps into the team's quarterback battle. UNLV opened camp on Wednesday with a two-hour practice session, and the addition of Martell has instilled some hope around the program, even coming off an 0-6 campaign in 2020. The team kept him out of sight during the portion of Wednesday's practice that was open to the media, but he later joined the team on the field as a nonparticipant.

Head coach Marcus Arroyo said Martell, who has enrolled as a walk-on, has not yet been cleared to practice. "We had a conversation over summer a few times, and over the time we got a chance to know each other," Arroyo said. "About our backgrounds and what we were both looking for, what our culture stands for, trying to get a feel for where he's at, what he's looking for, if there was a fit." Arroyo said there is no timeline for when Martell will be cleared to play, but when it happens the fifth-year transfer should immediately enter the team's quarterback battle as a heavy favorite to win the job. Junior Justin Rogers and sophomore Doug Brumfield are currently listed as co-No. 1 QBs, with freshman Cameron Friel also competing for snaps. Martell, a former state champion and Gatorade National Player of the Year at Bishop Gorman, committed to UNLV two weeks ago after spending his first three years at Ohio State and Miami. - Las Vegas Sun

  Former Bishop Gorman star quarterback Tate Martell will play football at UNLV this season. Martell announced his decision commitment through an interview with Franchise Sports Media. A person with knowledge of the situation said that he's walking on to the team as an "athlete," though the 23-year-old told Franchise Sports Media that he had other opportunities to play elsewhere on scholarship. "Honestly, this is where I want to be and who I want to play for," Martell told Franchise Sports Media. "UNLV checked off all the boxes for me on and off of the field. But I just want to come in, grind and compete. Just put my head down and work and be a leader and a person Coach (Marcus) Arroyo, the coaching staff, and my teammates can trust and count on."

Martell guided the Gaels to three consecutive mythical national championships and concluded his high school career in 2016 with one of the most impressive resumes in prep football history. He committed verbally to Washington and Texas A&M before signing with Ohio State as one of the top quarterback recruits in the class of 2017. He redshirted in 2017 and backed up future NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins the following season. He transferred to Miami in 2019 and played sparingly behind quaterbacks Jarren Williams and N'Kosi Perry. He did not play in 2020. - Las Vegas Review Journal

  The Mountain West released its preseason football poll Thursday ahead of its annual media days at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and UNLV is in a familiar place. At the bottom. The Rebels were picked to finish last in the conference's West Division by a panel of the league's media, garnering a total of 26 points - the fewest among the 12 teams in the league. Rival UNR was picked first in the West, earning 19 votes and a total of 141 points. Boise State was picked to win the Mountain Division for the ninth consecutive season. UNLV coach Marcus Arroyo said the Rebels "pay very little attention" to the preseason poll, but noted that "if we start worrying about that stuff, we're worried about the wrong stuff." "What anybody decides where you get picked has nothing to do with your football team. We don't control that," he said. "The only thing we control is how we play and how we work together." - Las Vegas Review Journal

  One day after UNLV football was picked to finish last in the Mountain West preseason poll, the scarlet and gray were shut out of the MWC All-Conference team. The league released its All-MWC teams on Thursday, with 11 players on offense and 11 on defense (plus four special teams selections), and no UNLV players were deemed worthy of inclusion. UNLV running back Charles Williams made the preseason All-MWC team last year, but after a season in which he posted 495 yards and four touchdowns in six games, he was beaten out by Fresno State's Ronnie Rivers and Wyoming's Xazavian Valladay. The two UNLV players with the best cases were wide receiver Kyle Williams and linebacker Jacoby Windmon. Williams won Freshman of the Year honors in 2020 by catching 35 passes for 426 yards and two touchdowns, while Windmon enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign in which he logged 39 tackles, 5.0 and 6.5 tackles for loss. - Las Vegas Sun

  Charles Williams has done a lot during his time at UNLV. The sixth-year running back has a 1,000-yard season, 19 career touchdowns and an All-Mountain West selection to his name. But his biggest accomplishment came last week, when he welcomed his daughter into the world. The first-time father said his daughter, Kamiyah, weighed in at six pounds, six ounces and measured 20 inches (she got her height from her mom, the 5-foot-9 Williams said). "It was a great experience watching her come into the world," Williams said. "I was speechless … She makes me happy every day I come home. I'm glad I've got her in my life now." The sure-handed back said that handling a newborn is not all that different from securing the football. "Basically the same: Don't drop it," Williams said. - Las Vegas Sun

  UNLV added to its 2020-21 football recruiting class with the announcement of three midyear transfers on Wednesday's national signing day. The Rebels brought in two transfers from Power Five schools, Indiana wide receiver Jordan Jakes and Oregon running back Jayvaun Wilson, and one junior college transfer, Cerritos College (California) offensive lineman Brandon Logan. Jakes is a 6-foot-5-inch, 215-pound receiver who gives the Rebels the tall threat they lost with the departure of Randal Grimes. They hope Jakes, whose father, Van, played cornerback for six seasons in the NFL, will be a strong complement to Mountain West Freshman of the Year Kyle Williams. - Review Journal

  It appears quarterback Tate Martell's football career is not over. Martell, the 2016 Gatorade Player of the Year and former wildly popular Ohio State Buckeye before he transferred to Miami in January 2019, entered the NCAA transfer portal Wednesday. The news was first reported by 247Sports, which later reported that redshirt junior running back Robert Burns, who had only 16 carries in 2020, has also entered the portal. Martell had opted out of the 2020 football season after the NCAA allowed it because of the coronavirus pandemic. - Miami Herald

  UNLV quarterback Kenyon Oblad announced Tuesday afternoon on Twitter he has entered the NCAA's transfer portal. Oblad, a Liberty High School product, has three years of eligibility remaining. He said there were a lot of factors that went into his decision to leave the Rebels. The 6-foot-3-inch, 195-pounder was 167-for-308 (54.2 percent) passing for 2,081 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions while leading UNLV to a 3-5 record as a redshirt freshman. That record included a 33-30 overtime win over UNR in the Battle for the Fremont Cannon, in which he tossed a 19-yard touchdown to Steve Jenkins for the game-winner. - Las Vegas Review
