- Wednesday Bowl Practice & Cowboys Stadium Tour
DALLAS, Texas - Penn State junior cornerback Stephon Morris fulfilled a dream on Wednesday afternoon when he and members of the Nittany Lion football team visited Cowboys Stadium, the $1.3 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.
Morris, a lifelong Cowboys fan, and members of the Penn State squad received guided tours of the immaculate structure in Arlington, Texas. Among the many features of Cowboys Stadium, which opened in 2009, are the 160-by-72-foot long video boards stretching from 30 yard line to 30 yard line on both sides of the stadium.
The tour included a stop in the Cowboys locker room where several Nittany Lions took photos next to former Penn State great Sean Lee's locker. Seating 80,000 for football with room for standing room crowds in excess of 20,000 more fans, Cowboys Stadium has played host to the Super Bowl, NBA All-Star Game, boxing, bowling, concerts and motocross races, in addition to football games.
Originally estimated at $650 million, the final cost of the stadium topped $1.33 billion. Take a look at Penn State's tour of Cowboys Stadium.
