The SBC Cotton Bowl Classic is played in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl Stadium on or around the first of January. Located in the historic Fair Park, the Cotton Bowl seats 72,000 and if you go there you are sure to get a glimpse of the famed Big Tex who towers over the fairgrounds. Not to mention you may catch the beautiful Dallas skyline on the way to the stadium.

The AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic has most recently been a match up between the Big 12 Conference #2 and the Southeast Conference. In recent years Kansas State, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas have won in the Cotton Bowl. Ole Miss took the prize in 2004 beating Oklahoma State 31 to 28. High-scoring games like this have made Cotton Bowl history all the more exciting over the game's 68 year history.

The Cotton Bowl is one of the oldest bowl games, having begun in January of 1937 as the vision of J. Curtis Sanford. The first two teams to play were the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs and the Marquette Golden Avalanche. These two teams featured two of the best quarterbacks in the game and the pairing got the attention of many fans. Sammy Baugh for TCU brought down the house and the team beat Marquette. It was the fulfillment of Sanford's dream for his New Year's game to be such an exciting contest and for it to be held in Dallas.

Downtown Dallas is also home to the American Airlines Center where the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars games are held. Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, is just around the corner to the west of downtown.
