“A relic that is well past its prime”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Now that Jerry Jones has built his $1.3 Billion Cowboys stadium, there is no reason for the Cotton Bowl to exist anymore. It is sorely lacking in any modern amenities, even men have to wait in line to go to the bathroom and buyer beware if you eat any of the food at the concession stands (although if you like warm beer, then this might be your kind of place.)

“Venerable name, creaky old place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

The venerable name "Cotton Bowl" may attract you, but by any other name it is just a creaky old uncomfortable stadium.

My beloved Cougars won the City Ticket Bowl. The stadium has gone throught a 57 million dollar renovation and it was great.
