DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars host the Nashville Predators on New Year's Day at the Cotton Bowl Stadium in a Texas-sized NHL Winter Classic. It will be the first outdoor game for both teams. With more than 84,000 fans expected, it is set to be the second most-attended game in NHL history. The stadium is best known as the site for the annual college football rivalry game between Oklahoma and Texas. The Dallas Cowboys also played at the stadium during their first 12 seasons, from 1960 to 1971.
