Maybe it was last year's sell out performance of BYU over the Oregon Ducks (can you tell I'm a BYU fan?). Or, maybe the Las Vegas bowl is just that cool. It is some 2 months before the bowl and supposedly it is already sold out. People love to come to town to take advantage of the many great things to do. Catch a game, eat at fine restaurants, hit the casino floors, visit family, etc.
More and more events are scheduling here. And many of them are selling out consistently. It is truly the entertainment capital of the world.
It'll be interesting to see who the top ranked WMC team is. They'll play the 4th or 5th team from the PAC-10 in the packed Sam Boyd Stadium.
