Expensive NFL venues can go a long way toward paying for themselves by hosting events other than NFL games. In so-called Sin City, the Raiders new stadium will attract a couple of universities with ironic religious connections.

Via Mark Anderson of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Notre Dame (a Catholic university) and BYU (a Mormon institution) will play at Allegiant Stadium in October 2022

Vegas hopes to bring more big-time college games to town in the coming years. Per Anderson, LSU and USC will play there in 2024. With more than 80 percent of Saturday’s crowd partial to BYU, Las Vegas could become a second home of sorts for the private university sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Indeed, BYU attracted an announced crowd of more than 54,000 for a game on Saturday against Arizona at Allegiant Stadium.

So, in other words, Las Vegas could soon be a destination more preferred than Orlando for budding Mormon missionaries.

  1. Someday on PFT there’ll be a new post: All future Super Bowls to be played at Allegiant Stadium. You just know the league and every player and coach and owner and media member and fan would applaud that decision.

  2. Vegas and organized religion are all about parting suckers from their money…this is a perfect marriage of the two!

  3. this sounds like fun. Couple years ago daughter won a raffle to buy tickets to Navy Notre Dame in San Diego. It was end of October during day of the dead festival, what a riot. I may have to look into this one.

    Yes, but they’ll stick Vegas with the Pro Bowl first and it still will draw 50,000 to the game.

    The stadium… well, it’s an incredible venue (once they figure out the parking or bring in Elon Musk to build the tunnel under the freeway) and will become one of the most successful public/private investments of all time.
