HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans are hoping their new HD video screens will help lure the 2017 Super Bowl to Reliant Stadium.
The Texans are in the process of installing the video boards, which will be ready for use in Houston's first preseason game in August. Cowboys Stadium in Arlington currently has the biggest screens, and Houston's will be about 30 percent larger than those.
The two new boards will have about six times the area than the current video boards and will be placed in each end zone.
Team president Jamey Rootes says, "we think this will be a compelling selling point for our bid." Owners will vote in May on the sites for the 2016 and 2017 games.
