I believe the annual OU-TX game is the only college football game still played at the Cotton Bowl.

The Cotton Bowl Classic is a different game. Itís a postseason bowl game thatís now part of the College Football Playoff. Sadly it hasnít been played at the actual Cotton Bowl since 2009. Itís played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Those earlier Cotton Bowl games commemorated by those now-vintage Rolex were old school college football. The winter weather often played a factor in the game. A much different game nowadays in the climate controlled stadium.
Yes, Jerry World is nicer stadium but something about playing outdoors seems more like football.

I would love to get my hands on one of those vintage Rolexes from Cotton Bowl game.
