Cotton Bowl Stadium History

Since 1932, Cotton Bowl Stadium has been a highly respected institution in the world of college football. As the former site of one of the biggest feuds in the NCAA, the Cotton Bowl has found a place in college football history and it continues to thrive as a pressure cooker for intense NCAA football action. Built in the 1930s and named the Fair Park Stadium, the Cotton Bowl attained immense popularity in the 1940s when football hero Doak Walker began drawing in teeming crowds to watch the Southern Methodist University running back score over and over again. This is a stadium that was the home of the Dallas Cowboys for a time, has been the backdrop for Super Bowls and has hosted some of the biggest games in college football history, making it one of the most recognizable stadiums in the world for top-tier football.
