    The Labor Day weekend show at Cowboys Stadium will include a top college football game through at least 2024.

    ESPN and the Dallas Cowboys have reached a lengthy extension for the Cowboys Classic, the holiday weekend game that started in 2009, the year the $1.2 billion stadium opened.

    The announcement on Wednesday included unveiling the matchup for 2014, when Oklahoma State plays Florida State in what was set to be the last game under the initial agreement. That game will be Aug. 30, 2014, two weeks before Texas and UCLA play at Cowboys Stadium.

    LSU and TCU meet in the 2013 Cowboys Classic next Aug. 31. TCU beat Oregon State in the 2010 Cowboys Classic, and LSU defeated Oregon last year.
