NIU and UNLV will make a final determination on the date of their scheduled 2014 game at UNLV “very shortly,” Huskie Athletics Director Sean T. Frazier says.

Despite reports that the game had been moved to the evening of Friday, Sept. 12, to accommodate a CBS Sports Network broadcast, neither school has announced a change from the Sept. 13 contract.

NIU has already finalized team hotel and charter arrangements, and a large group of Huskie fans and alumni have planned to follow the team to Las Vegas based on the Saturday kickoff.

“We regret any confusion the announcement regarding a change in the game date has caused our fans,” Frazier says. “We are working diligently to bring this matter to a conclusion as soon as possible and are in daily communication with UNLV. Know that we will make the best decision for NIU as we continue to move the program forward. We appreciate your support of the Huskies!”
