The 2000 edition to the Las Vegas Bowl was the 9th edition of that annual game. It featured the Arkansas Razorbacks, and the hometown UNLV Rebels.

Arkansas scored first on a 7-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Robby Hampton to wide receiver Rod Stinson for a 7-0 Razorback lead. In the second quarter, UNLV tied the score at 7, following a 19-yard touchdown pass from Jason Thomas to Nate Turner. Arkansas answered with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Hampton to Boo Williams, giving the Razorbacks a 14-7 lead. But with Thomas and Turner connecting for their second score, the game became a 14-14 tie at intermission.

In the third quarter, Jason Thomas notched his third passing touchdown of the game, a 54 yarder to Troy Mason, giving UNLV a 21-14 lead it wouldn't relinquish. In the fourth quarter, Dillon Pieffer kicked a 26-yard field goal to increase the Rebels lead to 24-14. Kevin Brown's 14 yard touchdown run made the final margin 31-14.
