Cotton Bowl Tickets

The Cotton Bowl is one of the most prestigious bowl games, with a modern twist. After playing in downtown Dallas for decades, the game has permanently moved to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the Dallas Cowboys. With the creation of the College Football Playoff, the game was also announced as one of the six rotating semifinal hosts. This means it will host a top-4 matchup once every three years, and will be a top bowl game destination for teams that missed the playoff during the two off years. Jerry World is a site to behold, and it sits in a fast-growing area with tons of attractions.

2018 Cotton Bowl Preview

The Cotton Bowl will take place December 29, 2018 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and will serve as one of the College Football Playoff semifinals. That means the winner of the Cotton Bowl will be one of the two teams to play in the CFP Championship Game.

The means that this year's Cotton Bowl will have two of the best teams in the country playing for a spot in the National Championship Game. That will drive demand higher than all recent Cotton Bowls, as many fans want to be there in-person to see the semifinal game. If you are planning to buy tickets for the Cotton Bowl, make sure to look early as it is very possible a big-name match-up could drive up demand and ticket prices.

Last year the Cotton Bowl featured a match-up of legendary programs as the Ohio State Buckeyes defeated the USC Trojans 24-7. It was Ohio State QB, JT Barrett's final collegiate game, and fittingly played in-front of his home-state crowd.

Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium

AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is the home to the Cotton Bowl. The game was played at Cotton Bowl Stadium from its inception in 1937 until 2010. Opened in 2009, AT&T Stadium is home to the NFL's Dallas Cowboys and one of the newer stadiums across the country. Its capacity is 80,000 but can be expanded to 105,000 for special events. There are four main seating levels inside the stadium: 100 level, 200 level, 300 level and 400 level. In addition, there are club seats and over 200 suites.

100 Level

The lowest level provides great views of the action on the field and sidelines. The sections on the lower level are 101-150 and there are typically 20-22 rows throughout. Fans love sitting in this 100-level, particularly those on the sideline.

200 Level

300 Level

The 300 level includes sections 301-350. The rows vary per section, with as few as five rows in the end zone sections and as many as 17 rows on the corners.

400 Level

The highest level of this massive stadium offers excellent sight lines and the best vantage point to see the massive HD video screen, which stretches from one 20-yard line to the other - 60 yards total. The 400 level includes sections 401-460. There are typically 30 rows on sideline sections, then 22-24 rows in corner areas and as few as five rows in the end zone sections.
