As a huge fan of college football and a Las Vegas enthusiast, I’m 100% all for any game that takes place in Sin City.
Vegas is a playground for people who love sports, gambling and enjoying a few ice cold light beers.
What’s it like when a blue-collar working class man buys a penthouse in Vegas? I found out!

As for the football side of the equation, fans want to see great programs play each other. While BYU isn’t a superpower, their brand carries a ton of name recognition.
Obviously, you don’t need to say much about the Fighting Irish. They’re one of the most historic programs in the sport and they’ll now be in Las Vegas next October to play the Cougars.
I have no doubt the fans will get up and be excited about it!
