DALLAS -- Dallas oilman J. Curtis Sanford sat in the stands of the Rose Bowl in 1936 and thought to himself his city should also have a New Year's Day game.
The next year the Cotton Bowl was born with Sammy Baugh and TCU playing Marquette. Over the years the Cotton Bowl has crowned
national champions and showcased Heisman Trophy winners.
Tomorrow is the last game in Dallas for the Cotton Bowl before
the game moves west to Arlington and the Dallas Cowboys' new
Seventh-ranked Texas Tech and No. 20 Mississippi meet in the
Cotton Bowl officials hope the move to the new stadium will help
their game reclaim the top-tier status it once had.
