Contest: Name your fave football film, win Cowboys tickets!

It’s fall and it’s Texas. That can only mean one thing: football.

In honor of the gods of the gridiron — and the fact that our local teams are kickin’ it this year — we want to know what your favorite football films are. Did you cry at the end of Brian’s Song? Were you rooting for the kids in Friday Night Lights?

Post the name of your favorite football film in the comments to this story or on our Facebook page, telling us -- in 100 words or less -- why it takes your top spot. Some of your responses may be published online and in print. Our favorite answer will score a pair of tickets to the Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium on Nov. 2.

Deadline to enter is Monday, Oct. 20 at noon. To be eligible to win, you must live in the DFW area. Important: Winner must be available to pick up tickets by 5 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Star-Telegram’s downtown Fort Worth office. McClatchy employees are ineligible to win. So, get ready to go long and one, two, three hike!
