During New Mexico head coach Craig Neal's weekly radio show this week, the Lobos coach brought up an interesting possibility. Apparently New Mexico and Arizona are in talks to play a men's basketball game in 2015 in Arizona Stadium, which is, of course, a football stadium.

The game at Arizona Stadium would be the first of a two-year deal, with Arizona heading to Albuquerque to play in The Pit in 2016.

A BASKETBALL/FOOTBALL DOUBLEHEADER IN THE SAME BUILDING! OMG!

Arizona's been trying to shine a spotlight on its football program, and this is certainly one way to do that. New Mexico benefits by getting Arizona to travel to Albuqerque.

What do you think about a college basketball game being played in an open-air college football stadium?

UPDATE:

It appears Arizona is looking into playing a basketball game in Arizona Stadium, but it will not be against New Mexico
