Games would be played at same time

IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys Stadium could become a major home for college basketball in the next 15 months.

The stadium will host an NCAA men's basketball tournament regional in March and the 2014 Final Four, and there are conversations for it to host four games to be played simultaneously on Veterans Day weekend next year.

SI.com earlier reported the concept.

"We are intrigued by the idea and are in the early stages of exploring many details that would go into making an event like this a reality," said Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Charlotte Anderson, who is also a member of the North Texas Final Four Local Organizing Committee.

The discussions about the event started last month at the unveiling of the Final Four logo with Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis, who is also a member of the NCAA men's basketball committee. Among the remaining details to be worked out are the schools that will be involved, the set up of the courts inside the stadium and television rights.

Cowboys Stadium hosted its first college basketball game on Dec. 19,
2009, when Texas beat North Carolina 103-90 in front of 38,052 fans.
In 2010, the stadium hosted the NBA All-Star Game.
