 Cotton Bowl (game) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Cotton Bowl Classic is a United States college football bowl game played annually since 1937 at the self-named stadium in Dallas, Texas.
Up until the mid-1980s the contest was counted among the four major New Year's bowls, but lost that stature when many SWC teams served NCAA probations for rule violations (rendering them bowl ineligible).
Also during this time the Fiesta Bowl, unhindered by conference tie-ins, began attracting national championship contenders and eventually it replaced the Cotton Bowl as one of the four "major bowls." The SWC folded in 1996 and the Cotton Bowl now matches teams from the Big 12 Conference and Southeastern Conference.
