LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Paradise Bowl is moving from St. George, Utah, to Las Vegas and getting a new name.

The Las Vegas All-American Classic will be played Jan. 24, 2004, at Sam Boyd Stadium and will be televised on Fox Sports Net, organizers of the college all-star football game said Friday.

The game has featured lesser-known players from the Mountain West, Western Athletic and Big Sky conferences.

Darry Alton, the game's executive director, said the move takes what was a regional contest and makes it a national game. After two years at Dixie College, Alton said the time was right to upgrade the game's locale and talent.
