CANTON, Ohio - There will be one final revival of the Big Tuna Bowl.There will be one final revival of the Big Tuna Bowl.
The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins will play in the 2013 Hall of Fame game August 4 in Canton, Ohio.
Hall of Fame enshrinees Bill Parcells and Larry Allen, who will be presented by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, will be key figures on induction weekend leading up to the 8 p.m. ET kickoff. The game will be televised on NBC.
Parcells, known as the Big Tuna, was famously nomadic -- and prolific as a program-builder -- going from the New York Giants to New England Patriots, New York Jets to Dallas Cowboys and then running the show in Miami from the front office. Along the way, he verbally agreed to become coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but changed his mind, and also worked as an NFLY analyst for ESPN.
Allen, Ravens offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden Vikings and Eagles wide receiver Cris Carter and Warren Sapp, a standout defensive tackle with the Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in a ceremony Aug. 3 along with Parcells and two senior candidates voted in: defensive tackle Curley Culp and linebacker Dave Robinson.
