Stream the Cotton Bowl with Sling

College football conference champions are made in Arlington, Texas. Tune in and watch the Cotton Bowl game to see which team will end up on top. More than 80 years ago the first Cotton Bowl Classic was held in Dallas, Texas. The Marquette Golden Avalanche and TCU Horned Frogs met at the Cotton Bowl Stadium with TCU winning 16-6. At the end of the college football season in December, two of the top four teams ranked by the College Football Playoff selection committee will face off in the Cotton Bowl on their quest to reach the ultimate title. Historically, the Cotton Bowl was a matchup of a Southwest Conference team and an invited Southeast Conference team. Now it serves as one of the six bowl games in the College Football Playoff series. The winner of the Cotton Bowl will then move on to the College Football Playoff National Championship. Past matchups include Ohio State vs. USC, Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma and Texas vs. LSU.
