As part of the run-up to Super Bowl XLV — to be played in Arlington on Feb. 6, 2011 — the North Texas Host Committee has put together a list of the greatest 250 moments in the region’s football history. That history begins, according to them, with the 1912 game between Oklahoma and Texas in Fair Park (OU won, 21-6).
Fans will be able to vote on what they think are the greatest of those 250 nominated moments, and the top 100 will be revealed in the fall. The nomination list will be revealed at an event next Tuesday at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas. On hand will be Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Tony Dorsett, Daryl Johnston, and Craig James, among others.Â Why is the event at Woodrow? Because it’s the only public high school in the country to produce two Heisman Trophy winners (Davey O’Brien and Tim Brown).
