    The Las Vegas Bowl is Saturday, December 21 at 12:30 at Sam Boyd Stadium. The teams are Fresno State & USC. It appears that Sam Boyd Stadium is at UNLV. I'll be in town for the game. I'm thinking about going. Is the stadium far from The Strip?

    UNLV is about 2.5 miles from the Strip ... between Flamingo and Tropicana.
    I would just grab a cab.

    Really?!? I was thinking it would be further away. Like the other side of town. I was thinking about taking a cab to & from. It being so close means the cab rides won't cost a lot.... unless I get long hauled!!!!

    I googled Sam Boyd Stadium and it's not on campus, it's on the outskirts of the city. Better re-check you plans.

    Right you are, John. Looks like the stadium is east of Boulder Highway, about 9 or 10 miles from the Strip.

    I just did a 'Google directions' from the MGM Grand. The three options that I was given have the distance as 9.3, 9.4, & 9.7 miles. Not a deal breaker.
