Stop it. Houston is not nearly the football city Dallas is and let me know when Houston wins championships. Where is Houston's equivalent of the Red River Shootout that happens ever year? Also, who won that Houston/Dallas game in 2014? And 2010?(BTW, there were LOTS of Cowboy fans in Houston in this game as well) And 2006?

Dallas and it isn't even close. As another poster stated, they have multi-million dollar high school football stadiums down there.

I don't think Houstonians are even aware they have a team most of the time, since they spend most of it talking about the Cowboys. It's sad, actually.....sorta like being a sports fan in Houston to begin with.

I chose Dallas. It was all Cowboys, all the time on local media outlets. Never seen anything like it.

Dallas Is number one but Houston is number two. The most expensive High School stadium is here (My church is within 300 feet of it) and we have historic Astrodome.
Allen's Eafle Stadium was 60 mil
Katy's second stadium will be 61 mil. But McKinney might build a 62.8 Million Dollar stadium which will mean Dallas will have to 60+ million stadiums.

Extremely sad to the point it's obsessive.

None of the above.

Pick just about any small/medium sized city in the Deep South or, better yet, an SEC college town (not Nashville or Lexington). The big cities are too diverse in their entertainment options. In the Deep South, college football is about all there is.

I know high school, college and pro football are all big in Texas, so overall I would pick Dallas. This is the only area where I found radio broadcasts of high school football play-by-play.
