Big-time atmosphere ready for prime time
By David Ubben
ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cotton Bowl couldn't ask for much better in its primetime debut. Two fan bases with reputations as some of the nation's loudest snatched up tickets and sold out the game within days, and they've made the trek to Dallas a month later.
Even the top corners of the stadium are full, and the sellout crowd has sounded every bit like you'd think, with "L-S-U" chants and only moments between each "Whoop!" from the Aggie faithful.
Kickoff is only a few minutes away, and Aggies defensive end Tony Jerod-Eddie will start, as expected, after breaking his foot earlier this season.
It's already pretty loud inside the stadium. Don't expect that to change any time soon.
