Should Houston and Dallas prevail in their third round matches next week, they'll meet again for the second time this year in Frisco in the fourth round.

Oh boy. Texas Derby round two anyone?

The fourth-round scenarios and locations have been announced for the 2013 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup - the 100th year of the competition - with matches scheduled for Wednesday, June 12.

The big one every Dallas fan will be curious about is who they would get next should they beat Fort Lauderdale next week in the third round. Well, it turns out they'll get the winner of the Houston Dynamo/FC Tucson game.

Yes that means a potential round two of the Texas Derby at FC Dallas Stadium. This time around a big prize would be on the line, a trip to the quarterfinal round of the US Open Cup.

This would be a big get for the club as it would mark the second home game of the month of June. FC Dallas will be on the road for three of four league matches in June with the lone home game coming against Sporting KC on June 22. This potential game with Houston would be just three days before a trip to Portland though.
