The Dallas Cowboys' new 80,000-seat stadium in Arlington, Texas, might be just the key to unlock the Cotton Bowl's inclusion in one of college football's most exclusive clubs: The BCS. Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones, who has a special place in his heart for the Cotton Bowl after helping Arkansas win the national championship there in 1965 with a win over Nebraska, hopes the bowl game that has been played since 1937 can join the BCS, according to a published report. Cotton Bowl Classic chairman Bruce Gadd notes that if it weren't for Jones' new stadium, the talk of BCS inclusion would be a short discussion. "The missing piece has been that stadium," Gadd told the Kansas City Star.
