Jerry Jones built a giant stadium with a giant screen and is hosting a giant Texas high school football game there Saturday night. Just take a look at the crowd gathered in Jerryworld for the Texas Division-1 State Title game.
And in the spirit of college bowl game season, here's how that compares to an FBS game:

Texas sure does love their high school football. So much so that, last year, only eight bowl games outdrew the massive crowd gathered there:
