25, 1969, which marked just the second year of existence for the Rebel program.The schools have faced each other 26 times with the Rainbow Warriors leading the all-time series 15-11 but with UNLV winning the last two meetings."The Rebels and Rainbow Warriors have been playing memorable games against each other in front of spirited crowds in both Las Vegas and Honolulu for five decades so it is fitting for a trophy to become part of the matchup," UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois said."The Cal is proud to provide an official trophy for a nearly 50-year-old rivalry between UNLV and the University of Hawai'i - the ultimate face-off between the Hawaiian Islands and the Ninth Island," David Lebby, Vice President/General Manager of The California Hotel said."The Cal and Boyd Gaming have decades-long ties to both UNLV and UH, making our sponsorship of the Island Showdown Trophy a perfect fit for us.If you’re a female you basically sit down and have 10-15 males rotate around you every 5 minutes.5 minutes can go very quickly if you’re having a great conversation or it can feel like an eternity if the conversation is going south from the start.I felt more comfortable at this point because I met another girl there who never tried speed dating before, she wasn’t looking for anything serious and didn’t expect much from it. As we entered the bar some of the servers asked why there were so many pretty girls and not so handsome guys. As the event began the host explained to us how it works.
The winner of the game will take home the "Island Showdown Trophy" each year UNLV announced Tuesday.
The Mountain West conference teams face off Saturday at 3 p.m. The trophy, sponsored by The California Hotel, features a "Vegas-style gold pineapple" and a variation of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign.
Las Vegas has been nicknamed "The Ninth Island" for it's popularity with Hawaiian visitors and transplants, UNLV said.
Part of what makes it better than just meeting some dude at a bar is you don’t have to guess if the other person is single or what they want; everyone there should just be there because they want to date.
It also clears up any missed connections since at the end of the round you can decide to match if you want to get in contact with them (but it has to be mutual.) Needless to say I’m a hopeless romantic and I truly feel that if you want something out of life you have to put yourself out there. I’ve been putting myself out there for a few months since I’ve been single and I thought why not speed dating?
