There’s nothing quite like the excitement and atmosphere that surrounds the Cotton Bowl Classic. Few athletic events in America have more history and tradition, and for this, our 82nd Classic, we begin a new celebrated chapter. 

As a “New Year’s Six” bowl game, the best in college football will descend on North Texas annually. The stature of our game has been raised, and we pledge to make this year’s game an unforgettable experience for all.

As you gear up for the big trip to AT&T Stadium, please take a moment to learn about our amazing home and tremendous fan events surrounding the Classic, including the Goodyear Huddle Up Fan Festival.

There is no doubt that the fans here in the Lone Star State and millions more around the world watching ESPN will be treated to a fantastic show. We are thrilled to have ESPN as our newest television partner.

We look forward to making your stay in North Texas as fun and as memorable as possible. On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, thank you for supporting the Cotton Bowl Classic, and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017.

Enjoy the game!
