Hail to our sturdy team,
Loyal and true,
March, march on down the field,
Oh silver and blue,
We'll give a long cheer for Nevada's team,
See them break through again,
Fighting for our own U of N, to victory!
N-E-V-A-D-A (you say) NEVADA!
Right before kickoff
As the kicking team gets ready to kick the ball off, we start by screaming "BATTLE READYYYYYYYYYYY". Once the kicker makes contact with the ball, yell "BOOM!". Pause for a moment and then yell "BATTLE BORN!".
Between the 3rd and 4th Quarter
Last Spring, Coach Polian wanted the students to choose the song that will be played between the 3rd and 4th quarter of football games. The winning song was "Jump Around" by House of Pain. It is very simple... Make noise and JUMP!
Where the Truckee's snowfed waters,
Drop from mountain's crest,
And the meadows meet the sagebrush,
by the sun caressed.
Cradled by the silver mountains,
'Neath the western blue,
Stands our noble Alma Mater,
Our Nevada U.
As the miner, on the desert,
Prospects ev'ry place,
So Nevada seeks the future
With an upturned face.
Ev'rywhere she gathers knowledge,
All that's good and true,
Gives she to her sons and daughters,
Of Nevada U.
We will ever live to serve her,
Live to give our best,
Live to make our Alma Mater
Pride of all the West.
Let her praises wake the echoes,
While we pledge anew,
Hearts and minds and hands and voices
To Nevada U.
