04:35 PM ET 05.09 | The Arizona Wildcats and the UNLV Runnin' Rebels have a game scheduled for September 7th in Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, but that game appears to be on the move toward a neutral site. The Rebels seem to be interested in moving the game to Glendale, Arizona in University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Cardinals. The neutral site contest would ensure a greater payday for UNLV, which would be up to one million dollars.

They are playing the Arizona Wildcats and moving the game to Arizona and calling it a neutral site. Ok by me, just give'em the money.

Like RRSO....is in Dallas Texas, but neutral site....

Just checked and it is a LITTLE different. At the RRSO the distance is about equal..this one, for UNLV it is a travel of about 270 miles, while for UA it will be 7 miles...so not so "neutral"

U of A is in Tuscon not Phoenix (Arizona State is in Phoenix) so the trip to Glendale (Fiesta Bowl Site) is about 120 miles.

Not suprised they want to move it, Sept. at Sam Boyd Stadium will be about 100 degrees or more at 8:PM, Glendale at least is indoors.

At least it's in a different state. And Arlington, Texas isn't exactly a hot bed of LSU supporters this would be like the Georgia Bulldogs playing UAB ,then moving the game to Atlanta and calling it a neutral site.Hammered has the most logical answer(other than more money for UNLV), it's indoors, during the summer, in the desert.

JD, what does a "different state" have to do with anything??? A neutral site is a neutral site", right???

So is LSU the home team agaIsnt TCU since the game is in Arlington and only 8hrs away?? If the game was in Nola or Houston i might agree Uf v Ga fits your argument better...

I'm saying a neutral site is a neutral site, regardless of state!!!! :-)

And i am saying LSU playing in Jerry World is neutrAl site.. we just travel well.. We had between 10-15k at UDub

I agree!!! IMO miles traveled don't mean a thing, if both teams play at a neutral site, but LSU playing UDub was not a neutral site for the Huskies!! Didn't they play at Baton Rouge last year??

WLOCP in Jacksonville is similar deal, but most UGaly fans still love the trip.

At the 12PAC border?

Neutral site infers an even split in tickets available to the schools.
