TCU, Oregon State to open season at JerryWorld

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to land big events for his new stadium.

After putting just over 50,000 fans in the seats for the March 13 Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey title fight, reports have surfaced that Cowboys Stadium will host the September 4 college football showdown between TCU and Oregon State, according to ESPN.com.

Both teams will open their season in Dallas at 7:45pm eastern on ESPN.

The announcement once again shows that Jones is serious about putting his spectacular $1.2 billion facility on display for the world to see. In addition to the TCU-Oregon State game and Pacquiao-Clottey fight, Cowboys Stadium hosted the 2010 NBA All-Star game, which drew and astounding attendance of 108,713.

The showdown between the Horned Frogs and Beavers will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

TCU is coming off an outstanding 12-1 season that ended with a close loss to undefeated Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. Oregon State went 8-5 in 2009 with a season-ending 44-20 loss to BYU in the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas.
