DALLAS (AP) - The State Fair of Texas opens Friday in Dallas with food, festivities and football as part of the 126th annual expo.

Free concerts include Kevin Costner & Modern West on Saturday, Kansas on Oct. 14, Kellie Pickler on Oct. 19 and the Commodores on Oct. 20.

Grambling State will face Prairie View A&M on Oct. 6 at the Cotton Bowl. Oklahoma takes on Texas on Oct. 13 in the Red River Rivalry football matchup.
