UNLV officials react to the news that the Oakland Raiders will be relocating to Las Vegas after NFL owners voted 31-1 Monday in favor of the move.
With the Oakland Raiders moving to Las Vegas, what does that mean for UNLV football? Head coach Tony Sanchez thinks so.
“Playing in a world-class facility is another thing that allows us to recruit at a high level. With that and the practice facility, the energy around the program right now, it has a chance to take it to a whole new level, a level a lot of people thought UNLV football could never reach.”
The Oakland Raiders will no longer be the Oakland Raiders by either 2019 or 2020. NFL owners voted 31-1 to allow the Raiders to relocate to Las Vegas, where the team will play in either two or three years, depending on exactly when its new stadium is ready .
