Located on the grounds of the State Fair of Texas in Dallas, this historic venue has the distinction of being the host of Notre Dame's return to college bowl games after a 45-year self-imposed ban in 1970. In 1978 Texas and Notre Dame battled in the Cotton Bowl. The Longhorns were ranked number one at the time. But under the direction of quarterback Joe Montana, the Fighting Irish beat the Longhorns 39-10.
The Cotton Bowl has hosted over 40 years of championship games. Until the mid-1980s the contest was universally considered as a major New Year's Day bowl game. The major game of the Big 12 Conference since 1996, the Cotton Bowl continued to be played on New Year's Day through 2008.
