The 78th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic is scheduled for Friday, January 3, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. CST live on FOX.
The Cotton Bowl Athletic Association (CBAA) is a nonprofit organization incorporated under the laws of the state of Texas to promote, sponsor and stage an annual postseason intercollegiate football game in Arlington, Texas.
AT&T Inc. became the official title sponsor of the game on September 18, 1996.
The first Classic was conceived by the late J. Curtis Sanford, a Dallas oilman and business executive. Sanford's first game promotion, a private enterprise guaranteeing each institution $10,000, matched TCU and Marquette on January 1, 1937, at Fair Park's Cotton Bowl Stadium before 17,000 fans. In 1941, the affiliation with the Southwest Conference began, with the SWC voting to send its champion annually to the Classic as the host institution. A partnership was formed in 1998 to create one of the top collegiate matchups in postseason play. Each year the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic will serve as the New Year's Day home for the Big 12 Conference and Southeastern Conference.
