Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Dallas officials unveil Cotton Bowl renovations: Today, city officials are set to reveal the biggest transformation in the Cotton Bowl's 78-year history, a $57 million upgrade that added more than 16,000 seats to its end zones, finishing out the ends of its oval bowl with upper-level decks and bringing its total capacity to 92,200. It's a change Cotton Bowl backers hope will mean a brighter future for a facility that many have dismissed as having its best days behind it. "I don't think there is a bad seat in the stadium anymore," said Fair Park's general manager Daniel Huerta as he looked out over the field from the top of the north end-zone seats.
