Future Games in Las Vegas?

4. Don’t forget about BYU, one of Vegas’ favorite teams!

The Cougars are a Las Vegas Bowl staple. Before the Raiders announced their relocation, BYU and Arizona were already on the books for a 2021 game at UNLV’s Sam Boyd Stadium. That game is now going to the new facility, and in the opinion of some, it could be the start of a regular feature for the school.

“I wouldn’t be shocked if BYU uses the Raiders’ stadium to set up an annual game,” a Pac 12 A.D. told SB Nation. “Their fan base travels extremely well to that city, and a game in a brand new NFL stadium could be the difference between grabbing a Power 5 or another Mountain West team [as an opponent].”

I support a BYU - P5 team game in the LV NFL stadium, but we can't give away H-N series to just any team. For the majority of P5 teams it has to be H-H-N.

I'd like to end up with seven home games a year plus a neutral game In Las Vegas. Six plus a neutral game in Vegas starting in 2020. But BYU needs seven home games a year of they want to get back to regular ten win seasons.
If ye love the tranquility of servitude better than the contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
