GROUP SEEKS DOME FOR THE COTTON BOWL
Published August 24, 1995
An citizens group in Dallas, headed by attorney Darrel Jordan, is discussing a plan that could dome the Cotton Bowl, increase seating capacity to 90,000, and add as many as 40 luxury suites. Cost of the project is said to be "in the millions" and Jordan said promised full private financing (Steve Richardson, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 8/24). The group hopes a dome "can lure" the football championship game for the Big 12 Conference, which begins play in '96, and that the Cotton Bowl game "can become part of the bowl alliance and play host to a potential national title game" (Wendell Barnhouse, FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 8/24).
