Godzillatron will soon have a new rival.
Texas and Oklahoma fans be warned. After walking past the Chevy truck display, the World's Largest Traveling Candy Store and Granny's Funnel Cakes, you can't miss the newest attraction at the State Fair.
A massive video board, measuring 83 feet wide and 57 feet tall, is being erected over the Cotton Bowl's south end zone. The video board and a new state-of-the-art sound system are part of the $20 million earmarked for stadium upgrades. Texas and Oklahoma agreed to a contract in May that keeps the series at the Cotton Bowl through 2010.

Because Oklahoma Sucks!!!!
Hook 'em Horns!!!!
Let the Shoot Out Begin!!!!
Got a new big screen for this game. Go OU!!!!!!!!!!!
Talk about putting lipstick on a pig.
No kidding, they could have used that much money to move the fair to a safer neighborhood. They should program Big Tex to say, "hey, get away from that car!" every 10 minutes.
Shoot! We were making plans to go the fair on Saturday, but I totally forgot about the game this weekend! It'll be too crazy! Guess we need to go tomorrow!
I have a nice memory of the Cotton Bowl from years ago...I had a friend in a band that was going to play with several other bands for New Year's Day. He invited me to one of the practices, and it was very cool to be one of only a few people in the stands way up high watching all the bands practicing together.
Good times. Good times. ;-)
Hook'Em again Horns.
Time to beat the Cheaters from OU!!!!
Exactly....no way I would be down there after dark. It's bad enough during the day!
During the game, the crowds are usually light. There are a lot of folks right at the end of the game, but it isn't too bad.
Of course, don't wear anything red or orange.
