Cotton Bowl History
The Cotton Bowl Classic continuously promises to showcase America’s most amazing players, as fans remember last year’s epic game: quarterback Johnny Manziel led the Texas A&M Aggies
to dominate over Big 12 rivals, the Oklahoma Sooners
, 41-13. “Johnny Football” Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and set the record for most rushing yards during a Cotton Bowl game, at 229 yards, throwing two TDs and running for another pair. This year is sure to be another fantastic showing, as early predictions are lining up the Oklahoma Sooners
versus Texas A&M or the Baylor Bears
versus the LSU Tigers
Currently located in Dallas, Texas at AT&T Stadium, it was initiated by oil tycoon J. Curtis Sanford and was held at Cotton Bowl Stadium on the grounds of the State Fair of Texas for 72 years, until moving to the home of the Dallas Cowboys in 2007. The Cotton Classic first kicked off in 1937 and is one of the oldest and most revered of the college bowl games. In fact, next year the Cotton Bowl will join four others as a (rotating) host for semifinal games in the all-new College Football Playoff system. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see history in the making in this legendary football tradition that cherishes our American football past while looking to the future for the new CF Playoffs.
