Today to make the scene at Jerry's new spread

NBC's Today will touch down at Jerry's Palace on Friday, Sept. 18th to trumpet the Dallas Cowboys' home opener against the Giants on Sunday Night Football.

Co-hosts Matt Lauer and Al Roker will do the show live from Arlington, with former Cowboys great (and current Cowboys naysayer Emmitt Smith) providing a behind-the-scenes tour of the $1.12 billion football emporium. Smith made news this week by predicting his old team will go 7-9 this season.

The occasion also will mark the first Today story by former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager, NBC says. She was recently hired as a Washington, D.C.- based contributing correspondent.

Also in the Today mix: Lauer will interview Cowboys owner Jerry Jones while Roker spends some quality time with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Plus, Lauer and Roker get to sample some of the new stadium's food choices.
