Big 12 title game to stay in Arlington?

June, 2, 2010
It looks like the Big 12 football title game could be calling Cowboys Stadium home for the next three years, according to Big 12 blogger David Ubben, who is in Kansas City for the Big 12 meetings:

There's been no definitive decision on the future site of the Big 12 title game, but commissioner Dan Beebe did little to dispel rumors that an official decision to move the game to Cowboys Stadium for the next three years is a formality.

"With the best facility in the world in our backyard, I don't care where it was located. It could be in Oklahoma City, it could be in Omaha, it could be in Lincoln," Beebe said. "We would be foolish not to take advantage of that for all sorts of reasons. For fan experience, for student-athlete experience, for recruiting of players everywhere, it's at least one more recruiting pitch you can make. You come here, and we play, we're going to play in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium. Those kids' jaws dropped when they walked in. For all of those reasons, I think we need to take advantage of that facility and that's what I've expressed. The board will finalize what direction we'll go for the next three years after this year, and that'll come up, we'll have a report on that later."
