All the Details

In 1937, the first Cotton Bowl game took place, and the stadium's identity as one of the premier sporting venues in America's cotton belt was secured. Since then, the stadium has at some point served as the home for numerous athletic teams, including the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Burn/FC of Dallas. The Cotton Bowl has hosted the AT&T Red River Rivalry between the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma football teams, as well as other gridiron contests at the high school and collegiate level. However, the stadium has served as much more than the site of athletic contests. In 1956, a 21-year-old Elvis Presley attracted 27,000 fans to the stadium, and in the late 1970s, the band Aerosmith recorded their first live concert in the Cotton Bowl.
