The clip preparing for the game from The Express (2008) with Dennis Quaid, Nelsan Ellis
There's an electricity in the air today in Dallas.
And, as you can see from the clear skies behind me,
it's not a local thunderstorm.
All eyes are on the field as undefeated Syracuse,
the Beast from the East,
takes on Texas, the power of the Southwest Conference.
Do I need to say anything?
Come on, it's on!
Come on, it's on, the Cotton Bowl. Come on, Marie.
Come on. Come on. Come on.
All right, all right.
Get two ice teas, please.
And the Cotton Bowl.
Drop your heads.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done...
George, fancy seeing you here.
You taking a look at Davis?
I've seen him.
In a Redskins uniform?
I think he'd look better in a Cleveland uniform.
Now, wouldn't that be something?
Ladies and gentlemen, please give a warm Texas welcome
to the Syracuse University Orangemen.
With a phenomenal record of 10-0,
Ben Schwartzwalder and his mighty Orangemen of Syracuse,
ranked number 1 in the nation,
take the field here at the historic Cotton Bowl in Dallas
to face Darrell Royal
and the second-ranked Longhorns of Texas.
You ready for this?
Get off the field!
If the Orangemen are going to be successful moving the football today,
