Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis is reportedly arranging four simultaneous NCAA games for Cowboys Stadium to be played on Veterans’ Day weekend 2013.

The games will begin 15 minutes apart and be held side by side (by side by side) in the giant facility. The purpose is to simulate the madness that takes place during the first week of the NCAA tournament. Only instead of the games taking place in four different cities, they’ll be played in one town, under one roof.

“We’re going to squeeze everything into a three-hour time period,” Hollis told me. “We’re talking with eight institutions right now that have a very high interest and have that weekend open, and we’re going to partner with the 12 [military] bases that are around Dallas, so we can make it a celebration for the guys at Fort Hood and others.”
