"As we've done it, it s almost like a Friday," Fulmer said. "It's been funny watching all the college football today and not having a chance to come out here and play tonight."
Keeping giveaways to a minimum is something Fulmer pointed to as a key to victory.
"Coach (John) Robinson has proven he can coach," Fulmer said. "Last year they beat Wisconsin with five turnovers. "We've got to take care of the football and help those youngsters have success."
In addition to Robinson walking the sidelines for the Runnin‚ Rebels, UNLV carries plenty of experience with them, too. However, Fulmer knows that the more he focuses on his team, the better the chances are of opening up the season with a victory.
"They're a very well coached football team," Fulmer said. "They have 25 seniors. Right now we're worried about taking care of Tennessee."
