DALLAS (AP) -

The 2014 State Fair of Texas will include a Texas Sports Hall of Fame exhibit and an effort to fight hunger by turning canned foods into art.

Fair officials in Dallas on Tuesday announced the theme for the fall expo is "Deep in the Heart of Texans."

An exhibit from the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in Waco will include memorabilia from sports stars recognized since the athletics group began in 1951.

Giant arrangements at the State Fair will be built with cans of food, with the items later donated to the North Texas Food Bank.

College football returns to the Cotton Bowl with Grambling State facing Prairie View A&M on Sept. 27. Texas and Oklahoma will play on Oct. 11.
    
The State Fair of Texas runs Sept. 26-Oct. 19.
