NFL owners voted Tuesday for the North Texas group, which had Hall of Famer Roger Staubach lobbying on its behalf. The Cowboys' $1 billion stadium seats more than 100,000 and will open in 2009. It has approximately 27,000 more seats than the other stadiums involved.
Indianapolis and Arizona also bid for the game.
The Indianapolis bid featured the Colts' domed stadium opening in 2008 and was backed by a Top 10 list by David Letterman. Arizona hosts the 2008 Super Bowl on Feb. 3 and hosted the 1996 Super Bowl in Tempe.
Texas has hosted the Super Bowl twice — in Houston in 2004 in the Texans' new stadium and in 1974 at Rice Stadium.
