    The Lone Star Conference will host a Sept. 17 football festival at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

    The Richardson-based LSC on Tuesday announced the event will feature two conference games and one non-conference matchup.

    The LSC says Midwestern State will face Texas A&M-Commerce, while West Texas A&M will take on Texas A&M-Kingsville. The non-conference game will have LSC champion ACU playing North Alabama of the Gulf South Conference.

    Commissioner Stan Wagnon says the festival will provide LSC football teams with a "tremendous opportunity to gain exposure in North Texas."

    Tickets will go on sale in a few weeks.

    Cowboys Stadium will be the site of the Feb. 6 Super Bowl.
