Did You See This? PSU tours Cowboys Stadium

Any trip to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex these days must include a detour to Cowboys Stadium. Now in its third season, the world’s largest domed stadium cost $1.3 billion to construct, and it used every single penny. The place is impressive on TV, so just imagine what it’s like in person. The Penn State football team knows how majestic the place is, as it toured the famous stadium Wednesday. Penn State faces Houston in the TicketCity Bowl at noon ET Monday at the Cotton Bowl.
