Cotton Bowl Stadium gets new postseason game

BY foxsports • October 13, 2009

The Dallas Football Classic at the 77-year-old Fair Park venue will debut on New Year's Day after the 2010 season with teams from the Big Ten and Conference USA.

The Cotton Bowl is moving this season to the Cowboys' $1.15 billion stadium in suburban Arlington. The Cotton Bowl on Tuesday extended its deal with the Big 12 through 2014 and plans to the same with the SEC.

The Big Ten will end a 14-year relationship with the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio after this season. Instead, the Big Ten will send teams to Dallas and the Texas Bowl in Houston, where a Big 12 team will be the opponent.
