The Cotton Bowl in Fair Park will once again host a postseason matchup after the 2010 season.

Cotton Bowl Stadium has found a replacement for the namesake game that is moving to the new Cowboys Stadium.

The Dallas Football Classic will debut at the 77-year-old Fair Park venue on New Year's Day after the 2010 season with teams from the Big Ten and Conference USA.

The Cotton Bowl is moving this season to the Cowboys' $1.15 billion stadium in suburban Arlington. The Cotton Bowl on Tuesday extended its deal with the Big 12 through 2014 and plans to the same with the SEC.

The Big Ten will end a 14-year relationship with the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio after this season. Instead, the Big Ten will send teams to Dallas and the Texas Bowl in Houston, where a Big 12 team will be the opponent.
