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

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.
