The Cotton Bowl's TV contract extension with Fox Sports puts the 75th anniversary game in prime time.
Cotton Bowl president Rick Baker said there's no better way to mark the anniversary than having the game showcased in prime time. The 75th Cotton Bowl will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011.
The game has moved from its namesake stadium to the new Cowboys Stadium. The first Cotton Bowl in the $1.15 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 2.
Fox has been televising the Cotton Bowl since 1999.
