Texas A&M and Arkansas will be calling Cowboys Stadium home a lot more in coming seasons. According to Sports Business Daily, the two schools announced Wednesday that they will hold their annual rivalry game at Cowboys Stadium from 2014 through 2024.
The two schools played three times at the Arlington, Texas facility from 2009 through 2011, generating big crowds, and was part of a 10-year contract. However, when Texas A&M joined the Southeast Conference, the game was moved back to contests at each campus for 2012 and 2013.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who built the palatial Cowboys Stadium, apparently played intermediary to make the deal happen, according to a report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
