RENO, Nev. -

University of Nevada head football coach Brian Polian and his wife Laura Polian will host the inaugural “Football 101” event for women Friday, Aug. 2 in Mackay Stadium at 5 p.m. Joining the Polian’s will be additional Wolf Pack football coaches and their wives.

“Laura and I are thrilled to host the Football 101 event for women,” head Nevada football coach Brian Polian said. “It gives us a great opportunity to connect with our female Wolf Pack football fan base and provides us a way to offer support to a great organization in Moms on the Run. We are looking forward to Aug. 2 and have no doubt that this event will be a lot of fun for all involved.”

Admission to the event is $75 per person, or a table of 10 can be purchased for $650. Proceeds from the event will benefit Nevada football and Moms on the Run. Guests will learn about each player position, football vocabulary and experience hands-on game-day preparation that a Wolf Pack football student-athlete receives.  

“I am really excited about hosting the event with Brian,” Laura Polian said. “I think this will be a great event for the women in our community. Not only can they have a great girls' night out and learn some more about football, but they can do it while supporting two great causes in our community. I am looking forward to continue to add to my football IQ while having a fun evening out with some girlfriends.”

The event will be broken into four quarters and a halftime period. 1st quarter (player check-in), 2nd quarter (silent auction and hosted cocktails), halftime (dinner provided by Pinocchio’s), 3rd quarter (pregame preparation) and 4th quarter (on-field playing time).

Participants are asked to dress in their favorite Wolf Pack attire and wear comfortable athletic shoes. Complimentary parking is available in the West Stadium parking garage.  To register for the event visit or call 775-682-6901.
