RENO — Single-game tickets for the 2018 Nevada football schedule are on sale.

Tickets are available online at NevadaWolfPack.com, in person at the main ticket office on the lower level of Lawlor Events Center and over the phone at 775-348-PACK (7225).

This year's home schedule is highlighted by a visit from Pac-12 foe Oregon State and the first trip to Mackay Stadium by Boise State in the past four seasons. The home schedule features five games at Mackay before the end of October and four home games against teams that went to a bowl game last season: Fresno State, Boise State, San Diego State and Colorado State.

The Wolf Pack, under second-year coach Jay Norvell, features 16 returning starters, including the top returning passer in the conference in senior quarterback Ty Gangi, Freshman All-American receiver McLane Mannix and all-conference defensive stars Malik Reed and Dameon Baber. Mannix, Reed and Baber were all named to the preseason All-Mountain West team as Nevada was second in the conference for having the most players on the team.

The Wolf Pack bolstered its efforts on both sides of the ball with one of the top recruiting classes in the Mountain West this year.

The Wolf Pack opens the season Aug. 31 against Portland State at Mackay Stadium. It will mark the first meeting between the schools since 1976. Nevada owns a 6-2 all-time record in the series, which dates back to 1960.
