Horrible location but the possibility of some solid opponents.
you can stay at a riverboat casino if you’re into that sort of thing. Remember staying at Sam’s Boat on more than one occasion on my way to my parent’s house for Christmas or Thanksgiving. One night Plavich went off on Syracuse before Thanksgiving, got the surprise result when I arrived at the hotel and checked the score. Another year we were in the hotel with both football teams playing in the bowl for Christmas. Not a big fan of the hotels though, but they were cheap at the time and a good option for stopping on the way through.
It appears BYU is locked as the opponent, that can be pretty strong depending upon the year.
