RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada and UNLV spent less on their NCAA football programs during 2011-12 than any other schools in the Mountain West Conference.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that Nevada ranked last in spending on both football at $5 million and basketball at about $1.5 million.
The $3.7 million UNLV spent on basketball last season was the third most in the league behind New Mexico ($4.5 million) and San Diego State ($4.4 million). UNLV spent slightly less than $7 million on football.
San Diego State spent the most on football in the league, nearly $11.8 million. That's nearly twice as much as Nevada spent on basketball and football combined.
