Cotton Bowl History

 

The Cotton Bowl began in 1937 and the matchup currently features schools from the Big 12 Conference and the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The game takes place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas as the previous venue for this contest was the Cotton Bowl in Dallas from 1937-2009. This game was named the Mobil Cotton Bowl, Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl Classic, and SBC Communications Cotton Bowl Classic, and the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic prior to Goodyear obtaining sponsorship rights in 2015.

In 2018, Clemson punished Notre Dame in another lopsided semifinal playoff game, 30-3. Favorites have won in 11 of the last 14 installments of this game, and the 'under' has now connected in four of the last five in this Arlington, Tex. bowl game, and the favorite is on a 4-0-1 ATS streak, too.

The most recent favorite to cash was Penn State, who took care of Memphis in 2019 as seven-point favorites, 53-39, marking the first time since USC in 1994 that a team has busted the 50-point mark in a Cotton Bowl.
