Detroit took a shot at landing the men's basketball Final Four next decade, but came up short.
The NCAA said Wednesday the Final Four will be played at the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington in 2014. It's also awarded the 2016 men's Final Four to Houston. Those games will be played at Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans.
The 2012 Final Four will be played at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, with finals awarded to Atlanta's Georgia Dome in 2013 and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis in 2015.
They were chosen from 10 bids submitted in June. Also competing to host the tournaments were Detroit, Minneapolis, Phoenix and St. Louis.
The 2009 Final Four will be at Ford Field.
