For the past week, we opened the polls to public: What would you like the name of Dallas’ new XFL team to be?
The league announced its launch late last year, and intends to start its regular season in Feb. of 2020. There are eight franchises which will play a 10-game schedule.
Former Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops is taking over as HC and general manager.
The team will play at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
