Cotton Bowl Classic Betting Odds

The Cotton Bowl is one of the most prestigious bowl games on the annual docket. It hosted a College Football Playoff national semifinal in 2018, as eventual champion Clemson boatraced Notre Dame. The Cotton Bowl won’t be a part of the College Football Playoff this year but is again expected to have an intriguing matchup between a pair of elite teams. The Cotton Bowl has hosted some of the best programs in college football quite regularly and that trend should continue once again in 2019.

Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Format

The Cotton Bowl is a well-known traditional bowl game that has been played in the Dallas area each year since 1937. Since 2009 it has been played at AT&T Stadium, moving from the original Cotton Bowl Stadium itself. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been instrumental in bringing this bowl back to top tier status.

The old Cotton Bowl Stadium became outdated and the game lost some of its prestige because of it. Playing outdoors in typically cold weather wasn’t what organizers wanted. When Jerry Jones built his behemoth AT&T Stadium in nearby Arlington for his NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, the Cotton Bowl jumped at the opportunity to upgrade its status. And the ploy worked. The Cotton Bowl is in the rotation as a New Year’s Six game and has hosted a couple of College Football Playoff games.

When not hosting a semifinal game, we’ve typically seen a team from the southwest part of the country participate. The Cotton Bowl had a long-standing agreement with the SWC before that league went belly up. The SWC champion had lost seven straight bowls before being dissolved. The Big 12, which included several former SWC schools, took over starting with the 1996 playing.

The Cotton Bowl returned to elite status under the new CFP arrangement. In the first year of the format, the game pitted Alabama and Michigan State in a national semifinal with the Crimson Tide obliterating the Spartans 38-0 on their way to a win over Clemson in the CFP title game.

Moving forward the game will continue to host some of the best programs in the country. Even before aligning with the CFP, the Cotton Bowl had two nationally ranked teams face each other in 26 of the previous 30 matchups, and the other four games had one of the teams ranked in the AP poll. With no conference affiliation, the bowl will host two at-large teams not selected to compete in the four-team playoff. Western Michigan was the top Group of Five team in the 2016 season and lost to Wisconsin.

With its ties to the southwest it’s not alarming to find teams in the region getting plenty of exposure in the game. Texas, a powerhouse in the old SWC and now the Big 12, has appeared in over one-third of the Cotton Bowl games with 22 total visits. The Longhorns easily have the most victories as well with 11. However, Texas hasn’t played in the event since the 2002 season when it knocked off LSU 35-20.

The move to the CFP proved bountiful in the first year. Hosting a national semifinal, the game drew an announced crowd of nearly 83,000. Without the appeal and no regional selections playing in the 2016 season game, fewer than 60,000 attended the contest. It was the lowest attended Cotton Bowl in nearly two decades.

College football bluebloods restored some luster to the game in the 2017 season with Ohio State defeating USC in a matchup of top-10 teams. It was the third time in four seasons the game featured a pair of teams ranked among the 10 best in the country. Clemson and Notre Dame drew more than 72,000 people in 2018. The matchup in 2019 will go a long way in determining how much interest the Cotton Bowl garners this time around.
