Tuesday March 26, 2013 Cowboys Stadium gets ready for Gators, NCAA South Region field

VIDEO: Cowboys Stadium being transformed for the 2010 NBA All-Star Game.

The Gators have played some big games over the years, but they have never played in a venue as big as Cowboys Stadium.

Florida faces Florida Gulf Coast University on Friday night at the home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys Stadium is the largest domed stadium in the world and has a listed capacity of 105,000.

However, it can hold more. When the 2010 NBA All-Star Game visited Jerry's World -- nicknamed after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones -- the announced attendance was 108,713, the largest crowd to ever attend a basketball game.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the stadium is being set up for this weekend's NCAA South Region to seat 30,000.

This weekend is a dress rehearsal for next year's Final Four, which is being held at Cowboys Stadium.
