IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 5, 2013) - There are perhaps no fans more passionate than college football fans, known to hit the road to cheer on their team, engage in intense rivalries and play part in ridiculous pranks. For the die-hard college football fan, opening weekend is not to be missed, and the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas, near University of Dallas, is making sure they spend their time focusing on the big game instead of worrying about spending too much money on a hotel room.

During Labor Day weekend, August 30th through the 31st, Dallas Cowboys Stadium will host the Cowboys Classic, the college football season opener featuring a matchup of the Louisiana State University Tigers (LSU) versus the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs (TCU).

Out-of-towners and even locals looking to score a great Irving, TX hotel deal shouldn't miss the chance to book special rates at the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas. Rates for Cowboys Classic weekend are just $125.95 for a standard room. To ensure enough energy to cheer on the teams, a rate of $135.95 includes breakfast for two. The hotel is close to the stadium, making it easy to beat the traffic and get back to celebrate a win or nurse a loss.

Both LSU and TCU have previously won the Cowboys Classic, and their matchup will be their first since 1968. At present, LSU leads the series with five wins, but come August 31st it's anyone's game.

For guests making a guys' weekend out of it, the hotel is near several Las Colinas golf clubs including L.B. Houston (3 miles away), RiverChase (7 miles away) and Bridlewood (9 miles away). Feed a need for speed at the Texas Motor Speedway or Lone Star Horse Race Park, or channel one's inner child at Six Flags. Outdoorsy visitors shouldn't miss Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World.
