The national semifinals drew 79,444 AT&T Stadium, beating the previous record of 78,129 when Kentucky beat Michigan State in a regular-season game at Ford Field in Detroit on Dec. 13, 2003.
“I don’t think there’s anything to it,” Manning said of his 4-0 record at AT&T Stadium, which allegedly included the Giants quarterback scribbling his name, the score, the date and the words “First Win in the New Stadium” in the visitors locker room.
The New York Football Giants will face off against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium Sunday. Both teams are dealing with injuries to star defensive players.
Victor Cruz and David Baas both arrived on crutches. Both players expect to be ready for the Giants’ September 8 season opener in Dallas.
