TicketCity Bowl Previews
TicketCity is thrilled to bring college football fans the inaugural TicketCity Bowl, being held at the legendary Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas. The New Year’s Day contest will pit teams from the Big Ten and Big 12 in what will surely be an instant classic! Buy TicketCity Bowl tickets and witness college football history in the making!
In April 2010, a new NCAA college football bowl game was sanctioned to be played at Dallas’ Cotton Bowl Stadium. The Dallas Football Classic was born to replace the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, which had been moved to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas earlier in the year. On November 8, 2010, Austin, Texas-based online ticket retailer TicketCity became the game’s official sponsor. The TicketCity Bowl will host teams from the Big Ten and, pending eligibility and alternating year pattern, either the Big 12 or Conference USA. For the 2011 edition, the Big 12 team will be staying at the Hilton Anatole hotel and the Big Ten selection will be at the Hyatt Regency.
Playing at the Cotton Bowl Stadium attaches some history to the inaugural TicketCity Bowl. Only second to the Rose Bowl in number of bowl games hosted, the 92,000 seat stadium is also the annual home of the Red River Rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma and the “State Fair Classic,” which pits the Grambling State University Tigers and the Prairie View A&M University Panthers in one of the biggest HSBC (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) tilts of the year.
On the pro-football front, the Dallas Cowboys called the Cotton Bowl home for eleven years before also moving to Arlington. In 1966, the Green Bay Packers beat the Dallas Cowboys on their way to the first NFL-AFL Super Bowl, making the stadium the site for an NFL championship as well.
Additional TicketCity bowl sponsorships include the BBVA Compass Bowl, Beef O’ Brady’s Bowl, Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, New Mexico Bowl and the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.
