Cotton Bowl History
Get your Cotton Bowl tickets now and experience postseason in the heart of football country! Under the brand new College Football Playoff system, the showdown in Arlington has been flung back into the spotlight as one of the biggest games of the year, and will remain so for years to come. The Classic was left out of top-tier contention throughout the BCS era, but has now been selected—alongside the Rose Bowl—as one of two semifinal sites in the inaugural CFP. The Cotton Bowl is part of the “New Year’s Six” rotation and will host two semifinal teams every three years, with 2015 being one of those special seasons!
No longer bound to host a team from the Big 12 against a team from the SEC, the Cotton Bowl Classic will welcome two national title contenders on New Years Day, as selected by a 13-person College Football Selection Committee. The two teams to emerge from the semifinals will advance to the first-ever 2015 College Football Championship Game also at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Jan. 12, 2015. Seasons where the Cotton Bowl is excluded from semifinals will pit two at-large teams selected by the same committee, base on competitiveness and geography.
The Cotton Bowl was initiated by oil tycoon J. Curtis Sanford and held on the grounds of the State Fair of Texas for 72 years, before moving to its current home of AT&T Stadium 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 NCAA.
