While thousands of Bison fans are expected in Frisco, we have to wonder - Will the team from Texas have the advantage?

It's a special night here in Frisco, where a Texas team will play in its own state for the championship. Earlier I asked Southland Conference commissioner Tom Burnett the advantages of Sam Houston State playing in Texas and what it can do not only for the championship, but also the city of Frisco.

Tom Burnett – Southland Commissioner: “When we put our bid together for the NCAA in 2009, we kind of laughed about well, would it be the best possible situation having a Southland Conference team, a Texas team. In our 2nd year, we have that, and it's certainly led to a high ticket demand out there in the marketplace.”
