Cowboys Stadium To Host Big College Showdown

NBC 5

Texas A&M will take on Oklahoma University on January 4, 2013 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

One of the biggest showdowns of the bowl season will take place in North Texas at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

The January 4, 2013 match up locally is the AT&T Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium. It will be the Oklahoma University Sooners versus the Texas A&M Aggies.

Aggie Quarterback Johnny Manziel dominated in the S.E.C. this year. The Aggies have played their share of games at Jerry World so it's a homecoming of sorts.  

OU fans really wanted an at-large BCS invitation. Now they have to face an old rival fresh in the toughest conference in college football.

Both teams' fan bases run deep locally so this sets up to be the best non-BCS match up of Bowl season. 

This also a recruiting dream match for both schools who heavily recruit North Texas.   This sets up to be a battle on and off the field.
