Last week UNLV athletic director Jim Livengood said there was a good chance his school's home game on Sept. 7 against the Arizona Wildcats would be moved to Glendale.

Tonight, Arizona Wildcats AD Greg Byrne said the same.

In his Wildcat Wednesday e-mail, Byrne said "we haven't signed a contract yet but we wanted you to know that it is a good possibility that it will happen."

Byrne said Livengood reached out to the Wildcats AD "a few months ago" to see if the UA would be interested in moving the game to University of Phoenix Stadium-home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals. Byrne and the Wildcats obviously jumped at the chance to have another in-state game.

Livengood, who previously served in the same role at the UA, announced his retirement from UNLV earlier today, so there's a good chance his decision to move the game to Glendale could be his final major act as the school's AD.

If the game this season is moved to U of P Stadium, it means eight of the team's 12 games will be played within state limits. The only out-of-state road trips would be Cal, Washington, USC and Colorado.
