Cotton Bowl History

For years the Cotton Bowl was held at Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, but in 2009 the game was moved to the state of the art AT&T Stadium which is also the home of the Dallas Cowboys. The game usually features the second place team from the Big 12 and the second place team fro the SEC West. The first game was held in 1937 when TCU beat Marquette and the game has grown to be one of the most highly attended and anticipated games of the season. The Texas Longhorns have played in the Cotton Bowl 22 ties, more than any other team.

The Teams

The Sun Bowl features one of the best teams from the Big 12 battling against one of the best teams from the SEC. The Big 12 has long been known as one of the premiere college football conferences in the country and it should be as hotly contested as ever during the 2014 season. The schools which comprise the Big 12 are Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, West Virginia, and Iowa State. Last season the Baylor Bears emerged as the Big 12 champions finishing with an 8-1 conference record which put them just ahead of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas who all finished Big 12 play with 7-2 records. Every game counts in the Big 12 and there may be no recovering from an off day that results in a loss. You can expect the three teams who tied for second place in the Big 12 in 2013 to be even hungrier this season trying to get back to the top of the conference standings while Baylor will be looking to successfully defend its title. Each year in the Big 12 some team turns things around after an off year to become a legitimate contender. In Division I football, the Southeast Conference, or SEC, is consistently the toughest in college football. The University of Alabama Crimson Tide is the all time SEC leaders with 23 conference titles and 15 national championships, including 3 titles in the last 4 years. The SEC is home to some of the sport's biggest rivalries including Auburn vs. Georgia, Auburn vs. Alabama, Louisiana State University vs. Florida, and Alabama vs. Tennessee. Some of college football's greatest players have come from the SEC like Tennessee's Peyton Manning, Georgia Bulldog running back Herschel Walker, Mississippi linebacker Patrick Willis, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, defensive tackle Reggie White and Auburn running back Bo Jackson. When you play in the SEC, every game is a tough one. Last season the Auburn Tigers finished with a 13-1 record (7-1 in SEC play) and went on to play in the BCS National Championship Game where they fell to the Florida State Seminoles in a thriller. The SEC is always exciting, with a rivalry every week and one loss could cost a team a shot at a national championship.

The Experience

The pageantry and passion surrounding college football makes it one of the most exciting sports in the world and there is no way to fully experience a game without being in the stadium surrounded by tens of thousands of other passionate fans. Of course, all of the excitement is just ratcheted up for bowl games and the Cotton Bowl is sure to be one of the best games of the entire season. The two teams have spent all year competing in two of the sport's toughest conferences, going up against the best teams in the country week after week, an experience that has only made them better and they are meeting each other at the time when they are both playing their best football. If you are looking for top tier college football action you need look no further than the Cotton Bowl. Even if the two teams competing against one another are not your favorites you are sure to get caught up in all of the excitement of the Cotton Bowl and have a great time at AT&T Stadium. College football is one of the most revered sports in the United States, and when two powerhouses take to the field for an exciting college bowl game like the Cotton Bowl, there is only one place to be, and it definitely isn't sitting on your couch watching on your disappointing little flatscreen.
