Report:

Cowboys Stadium may host four basketball games at once

The SportsXchange

Officials with Cowboys Stadium are in talks to host four college basketball games simultaneously played next fall, according to multiple reports.

The Irving, Texas, facility would house four courts on the football field with tipoffs staggered 15 minutes apart, according to SI.com. The games would be played on Veterans' Day weekend and would serve as the tipoff of college basketball season.

"We are intrigued by the idea and are in the early stages of exploring many details that would go into making an event like this a reality," Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Charlotte Anderson told ESPN.com.

The games are the brainchild of Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis, who also conceived the college basketball games that have been played on aircraft carriers the past two seasons. He also is a member of the NCAA men's basketball committee.

No schools have been announced as participants for the event.

The stadium will host an NCAA men's regional final this March. It has hosted an announced crowd of 38,052 for a Texas-North Carolina game in 2009 and was home to the NBA All-Star Game in 2010.
