    Baylor-Tech to play in Dallas the next 2 years

    Tech-Baylor moving to Dallas-Fort Worth for next two years - Big 12 - ESPN
    Texas Tech and Baylor announced today they will be moving their 2009 and 2010 games to Dallas-Fort Worth-area stadiums.
    Baylor will move its 2009 home game against the Red Raiders to the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington on Nov. 28.


    Texas Tech will move its home game in the Baylor series to the historic Cotton Bowl on Oct. 9, 2010.


    The move makes sense in one standpoint, giving both programs exposure in the biggest recruiting area in the conference. It means that every Big 12 South team, except for Oklahoma State, will be playing a game in the Dallas area this season. And all but Texas and Oklahoma State will be playing at the Cowboys' new stadium.
    I guess Dallas is the place to be. OU is even playing there twice...

    Only three Big 12 teams don't have a neutral site game next year.

    The upside for a neutral site game for Baylor and Tech is the chance to play in the nicest football stadium on the planet. The new Texas Stadium is supposed to be unbelievably nice.

    The OP wasn't saying that. The bit about giving alumni in Dallas a game was the legitimate cover for the real reason of lining Jerry's pockets. Of course Waco is an hour or so from Dallas, so I doubt that's keeping Baylor alums away.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    They do it for the money just like ISU playing in KC, they get money from both years instead of just the year it is at thier place. The only reason to give up a home game is money, and a lot of money.

    is there a reason anyone would care where they play? or did I miss something?
