Welcome to Cowboys Stadium, Texas

Texas and UCLA will play at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in 2014, the school announced.

The two schools just wrapped up a home-and-home in 2010 and 2011. Texas won this year's game, 49-20, in the Rose Bowl. UCLA beat Texas in Austin last season, 34-12.

By my count, this would only be the second time Texas has ever played in Cowboys Stadium, which is a bit surprising.

The Longhorns won the Big 12 title and clinched a spot in the national title game in 2009 by beating Nebraska on a last-second field goal in the 2009 Big 12 Championship.

UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero, in a blog posting to donors and boosters, said this week that UCLA had, "negotiated a deal that will feature the Bruins against a marquee opponent at Cowboys Stadium."

The Longhorns were scheduled to play at Arkansas in 2014, but that game has been moved to 2021 to make room for the date in the metroplex against the Bruins.
