The Cotton Bowl Classic has been a staple of the bowl series since the first annual game in 1937. On January 6, 2012 this prestigious bowl will return to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX for the third time. Last year's Cotton Bowl featured a great match-up between the LSU Tigers and the Texas A&M Aggies. In the end LSU prevailed 41-24 but it was an exciting game throughout.
The Cotton Bowl Classic has historically featured the second place team in the Big 12 and the third or fourth place team from the SEC. Both the SEC and Big 12 are power conferences in college football and they always produce talented teams to play in such a high profile bowl game. Both conferences are deep again this year and feature several ranked teams. As we progress through the season the probable match-up for the 2012 Cotton Bowl will be more definitive but for now lets enjoy some good football in anticipation for the college bowl season.
