Cotton Bowl Classic
While the Cotton Bowl Classic is played Texas, this year it was not won by football team from Texas. The Baylor Bears fell to Michigan State Thursday 42-41.
This year’s Cotton Bowl Classic will be the first game to feature two top-10 nationally ranked teams. The 8th ranked Michigan State Spartans will travel south to face off against the 5th ranked Baylor Bears on New Year’s Day, January 1st, 2015.
The 77th Cotton Bowl Classic will play out in Arlington Friday night. But did you ever stop to think, who founded the annual event and how did it become so popular?
The new “Heart of Dallas” bowl, which debuted New Year’s Day at the old Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas Fair Park, is unique. It is run as a non-profit to benefit local charities.
