Dallas, December 29-January 3
Get an early start to the weekend by checking out Baylor's other top program, the men's basketball team, as they host Texas Southern Tuesday, Dec. 29. The real fun begins with the other College Football Playoff semifinal game on New Year's Eve is the Cotton Bowl, which will be played in Jerry Jones's glimmering AT&T Stadium. Jerry World will be packed Sunday, as well, when the Dallas Cowboys host NFC East rival Washington in the regular season finale. Make a basketball sandwich between those two thick slices of football by checking out Dirk Nowitzki in what may be his last season with the Dallas Mavericks, as they host the New Orleans Pelicans and future NBA MVP Anthony Davis on Saturday, Jan. 2.
