Last year was one thing, with Notre Dame (Irish and Catholics).
If Boston College or some other Catholic school was there, it would make sense.
But two public universities? Are there that many people of Irish descent in Happy Valley or Orlando?...

The stadium is way too old, has virtually no modern comforts, and is in the worst part of Dallas.

Not even close.
Plus to Columbus you're pretty much stuck on a handful of direct flights via American. You can get to Lubbock on either Southwest or whoever American is using as their puddlejumpers....
