This was my first time here and we really enjoyed it since Oklahoma won. My only complaint would be that they have a big screen on both ends of the field.

Great on site facilities. Army tailgate was well staffed & food was great. Stadium is a bit dated on concessions but it's an historic gift to football. The complex is great & traffic was not bad. Easy to Uber here & there in Dallas.

The game was fantastic. The staff at the game, the gate, event staff were really nice and polite. This was my first trip to the Cotton Bowl and I do plan on returning.

The Cotton Bowl / Fair Park complex is as big as Dallas... It is a great place to go to any event. The Red River Rivalry between UT & OU is always fun. The State Fair is as iconic Dalas Texas as you can get...
