The biggest boxing match of the century is Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena where Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will duke it out. Come Dec. 22, 2015, however, the arena will play host to a neutral site basketball game between ASU and St. John's according to Jon Rothstein of CBSsports.com.

Bottom line, hopefully you're ready to channel your inner Clark Griswold and take the family on a Vegas vacation for some wholesome family fun. The game against St. John's will be the second time the Sun Devils make the trip to Las Vegas next season. They also have a game scheduled there against UNLV on Dec. 16.

The maroon and gold will return to Sin City again in March 2016 for the Pac-12 Tournament. As Rothstein notes, it will be a matchup of two coaches at new programs in Bobby Hurley and Chris Mullin. Mullin got the job after the Red Storm and Steve Lavin agreed to part ways this offseason. He was on the 1992 Barcelona Olympics dream team with one of Hurley's Duke teammates, Christian Laettner.
