History

1930s

The Cotton Bowl was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1937 at the Texas State Fair Grounds, when Texas oil executive J. Curtis Sanford financed the first one out of his own pocket. Texas Christian University took on Marquette, winning, 16-6, but the game lost money even though some 17,000 attended. Nonetheless, Sanford persevered, and in 1938 the game made a profit as Rice defeated Colorado, 28-14, in front of a crowd of 37,000.

Texas and Notre Dame met again in the 1978 game, with the Longhorns again ranked number one, only to see the Irish and quarterback Joe Montana roll to a 38-10 victory.

1990s

For 40 years the champion of the now-defunct Southwest Conference played as the home team in the Cotton Bowl. Up until the mid-1980s the contest was counted among the four major New Year's bowls, but lost that stature when many SWC teams served NCAA probations for rule violations (rendering them bowl ineligible), while the Fiesta Bowl, unhindered by conference tie-ins, was able to attract national championship contenders. Eventually it replaced the Cotton Bowl as one of the four "major bowls."

cotton: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (6814 words)
Cotton is a soft fiber that grows around the seeds of the cotton plant (Gossypium spp.), a shrub native to the tropical and subtropical regions of both the Old World and the New World.
Cotton strippers are generally used in regions where it is too windy to grow picker varieties of cotton and generally used after application of a defoliant or natural defoliation occurring after a freeze.
The logistics of cotton harvesting and processing have been improved by the development of the cotton module builder, a machine that compresses harvested cotton into a large block, which is then covered with a tarp and temporarily stored at the edge of the field.
Cotton Bowl (game) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (400 words)
The game is currently sponsored by ATandT, and has previously been known as the Mobil Cotton Bowl Classic, the Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl Classic, and the SBC Cotton Bowl Classic.
Also during this time the Fiesta Bowl, unhindered by conference tie-ins, began attracting national championship contenders and eventually it replaced the Cotton Bowl as one of the four "major bowls." The SWC folded in 1996 and the Cotton Bowl now matches teams from the Big 12 Conference and Southeastern Conference.
For many decades, the Game was a New Year's Day staple on CBS, where the man most associated with the Cotton Bowl, Lindsey Nelson, handled the play-by-play.
