Fans of University of Nevada, Las Vegas football can expect home-and-home series with BYU and Northern Illinois, as well as a tilt with University of Michigan, in the next two seasons.

The school's athletic department announced the completion of its non-conference schedule for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

UNLV said it recently reached a deal with Bowl Championship Series "buster" Northern Illinois. The Huskies, which the Rebels will host on Sept. 13, 2014, faced Florida State University in this past Orange Bowl.

UNLV scheduled six home games for each of the upcoming seasons.

The Rebels are in the midst of a four-game win streak, with a battle against nationally-ranked Fresno State coming on Saturday. In its next home game, UNLV faces San Jose State on Nov. 2.
