Cowboys Classic Schedule
If you are a college football fanatic chances are you have already marked August 30th
on your calendar as it is the opening weekend of the 2014 college football season. There are a slew of games to choose from
but the Cowboys Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas has annually been one of the best games of the season since
the inaugural event in 2009. The 2014 Cowboys Classic will feature two of the top teams in the country, the Florida State
Seminoles and the Oklahoma State Cowboys both of whom have lofty expectations for the upcoming season. Both sides will be
looking to start their season with a bang and will not be looking to have their dreams of a national championship cut short
on the first day of the season.
The Cowboys Classic is held at AT&T Stadium, the Arlington, Texas home of the NFL's
Dallas Cowboys. The enormous venue has hosted the Super Bowl and several other big time events and was built specifically
with football in mind assuring the fans that there is not a single bad seat in the house. Both the Florida State Seminoles
and the Oklahoma State Cowboys will be taking the field on August 30th trying to avoid an early loss that could come to haunt
them at the end of the season. Be sure to get your Cowbouys Classic tickets from StubHub today and make plans top be in Arlington
at the end of August.
The Florida State Seminoles are coming off of a 2013-2014 season in which
they emerged undefeated as National Champions. Heisman winning quarterback will return for his sophomore season looking to
guide the Seminoles to back to back titles and perhaps become a two time Heisman winner. The school first fielded a football
team in 1947 and has claimed three national titles, as well as six unclaimed national championships and 17 conference titles
14 of which came in the ACC. High expectations for the Florida State Seminoles have spurred the team to put in extra work
in the off season in hopes of accomplishing their goals.
Oklahoma State has had a football team since 1915 but has yet
to win a national championship. You can be sure that they will be looking to make a name for themselves by taking down the
defending champion Seminoles in front of a huge national television audience. Entering his ninth year head coach Mike Gundy
will be hoping to build upon the success he has brought to the university over the past decade and he just might have the
team to have a watershed year with the Cowboys.
AT&T Stadium is a state of the art
venue that has been a mecca for football fans since it first opened. Once fans enter the stadium for the Cowboys Classic it
is clear that they are about to see a college football game unlike any other. The players warming up on the field are visibly
fighting off nerves and trying to get out all of the jitters before the opening kick off. The crowd is full of players' families,
alumni, hordes of journalists and sports writers, locals who are always thrilled to take part in the annual tradition, and
college football fanatics who are hoping to see another historic college football match up. The pageantry of the cheerleaders,
mascots, marching bands, and wild fans are enough to get you out of your seat, and then the game begins. Thunderous, bone
rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, clutch field goals, and game breaking plays fill up the day of world
class college football. By the time the clock winds down your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and
giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip the following year.
in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, there is always plenty to do in Arlington aside from attending a football
game. The Texas Rangers Ballpark is found in the city if you choose to catch a baseball game by one of the best teams in the
MLB over the past few seasons. Additionally, you might decide to check out Six Flags Over Texas, a theme park whose roller
coasters are sure to get your heart pounding and which was the original Six Flags park. If bowling is more your thing then
you have come to the right place in Arlington as it is home to the International Bowling Campus which features the International
Bowling Hall of Fame, the International Bowling Museum, and the United States Bowling Congress.
In addition to the professional
sports teams located in Arlington you can always catch some premiere student athletes locked in competition whether they are
playing for University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington Baptist College, or any of the other local colleges. Some of the best
competition in all of sports takes place at the collegiate level and nowhere is this more true than in Arlington.
far TCU and LSU are the only teams to have appeared in the Cowboys Classic more than once. LSU is undefeated in the event
with a 2-0 record while TCU is 1-1. In 2015 Alabama will be making their second appearance in the Cowboys Classic hoping to
defeat Wisconsin and improve to 2-0 alongside their SEC rivals LSU.
