FABRIC OF FOOTBALL: In Dallas, Liz Farmer notes maintenance crews yesterday "were putting the finishing touches on the newly renovated Cotton Bowl." Fans will notice "several improvements since last year, including shiny new floors decorated with the Cotton Bowl logo in the entrances to the stadium." New banners inside "highlight the 21 Heisman Trophy winners who have played at the Cotton Bowl." The stadium "added 336 club-level seats with larger aisles, cup holders and stadium seating, as opposed to the bleachers that most fans populate." The conversion "cost the stadium about 300 seats, which brings the total occupancy down to 92,200" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 9/25).
